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.

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!

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.
