The inside round steak from deer is about the most tender cut you will find. A stunning piece of meat that requires very little in terms of preparation and flavoring. Here I’m smoking it using apple wood.

Serves: 4

Ingredients

ImperialMetric

2-2.5 lbs inside round steak from fallow deer
1 tsp salt
a few chunks of apple wood

1-1.2 kg inside round steak from fallow deer
1 tsp salt
a few chunks of apple wood

Instructions

Trim the meat if needed. Pat it dry with a paper towel. Apply a dry brine the night before. Get your grill started using indirect heat. Have it running at 260° – 300° F. Place the apple wood chunks on the fire, and the meat on the cold side with a thermometer in it. Close the lid, and smoke its inner temperature reaches 130° F. Once done, give it a quick sear on the hot side of the grill, then wrap it in aluminum foil and a towel, and let it rest for 15-20 minutes. Unwrap it, cut thin slices and serve it, why not with a porter beer sauce?
