Store fresh venison striploins in your refrigerator until you’re ready to use them or freeze for long term storage. Frozen striploins should be kept frozen until you’re ready to use them (then thaw only as many as you need).
Venison striploins can be roasted whole or sliced into steaks, noisettes (small steaks) or medallions for pan roasting, sautéing broiling or grilling. To help protect its quality the meat should be rested (covered) for a few minutes after cooking (the larger the cut, the longer the rest). The meat will continue to cook from residual heat while resting, so it’s best to stop cooking it a few degrees away from your target temperature.

Venison is commonly paired with fruit (apples, pears, or cherries), fresh mushrooms, juniper berries, thyme, rosemary and red wine. If you’re looking for a starch to serve with your braised venison or venison stew, consider sweet potatoes, polenta, or risotto(how to make risotto).
