Venison Satay with Peanut Sauce

Venison Satay with Peanut Sauce is Tenderloin marinated in an Asian flavored marinade skewered and grilled to perfection, served with a spicy peanut sauce. This Venison Satay is absolutely mouth watering and so very tender and flavorful! I know traditionally we don’t see venison in Asian recipes but we live off venison, so I tend to do with it what many would do with beef.

This week for Sunday Supper we are taking a virtual foodie trip to Asia and sharing recipes with you for some awesome Asian Cuisine! Thank you to Amy over at kimchi MOM for hosting and I hope you like my Venison Satay with Peanut Sauce!

Venison Satay with Peanut Sauce

Growing up, the most exposure I had to Asian food was La Choy in a can. Needless to say, I felt that I absolutely hated Asian food because of that experience! However, when my first hubby and I started dating, he took me to a Chinese Restaurant that gave me a totally different experience! The first Chinese meal I ate was Moo Goo Gai Pain. I loved it. I have since progressed to liking the spicier side of food and go that route now days, but that was the experience that changed my opinion about liking Chinese food!

I started making my own Asian food in my early days of blogging.  I was so hooked on Garlic Scallion Noodles that I had found on Steamy Kitchen’s website. Hence, that is when my true pasta obsession began. We still love that recipe but since have had to cut down on the carbs in our diet so we don’t eat it as often as we used to.

Grumpy loves Honey Walnut Shrimp and Crab Rangoon so I also set out to make those recipes next to please him. Turned out they became some of my favorites also! Some other recipes I’ve posted about that we love are Venison Potstickers and Pulled Pork Noodle Bowls. I have an Asian Recipe category you might want to visit also!

Venison Satay with Peanut Sauce

Today I decided I would share with you a recipe that is popular in Southeast Asia. Satay is made of thin strips of skewered meat that is marinated and cooked on the grill. While the ingredient list seems long, don’t let it deter you! The same ingredients are listed for all 3 components of this recipe so it’s actually much shorter than it looks.

What are your favorite Asian recipes? Be sure to read after the recipe to discover what other Sunday Supper Tastemakers have shared as their favorites with you today!

    This looks like a tasty dish! Nothing wrong with cooking up a lot of Asian dishes or German for that matter – haha! These skewers look like they’re packed with flavor!

    We love satay. I hadn’t thought to make it out of venison but what a great choice for a protein.

    I have had venison many a time in my life (my cousins and uncles hunt), but I have never made it Asian style! This looks like such a tasty way to prepare it. 🙂

    Your post reminds me it’s been far too long since I’ve had Satay Shelby. And never venison (which I love). Great looking dish, and photos!
