Start with a soak in a balsamic vinegar-based marinade for 4 to 8 hours, then grill them on a smoking hot grill until they are perfectly medium-rare. After resting the meat, it can be sliced thinly and served over fresh greens.

It’s the perfect summer meal to use up some of last fall’s venison and impress your friends.
