How to Make Easy Venison Carne Asada Burrito Bowl

5.0 from 1 vote

This dish uses tender venison meat to take the traditional carne asada and give it a unique twist. Whether you’re a seasoned chef or a beginner in the kitchen, this recipe is sure to impress with its simplicity and bold taste. The venison is first marinade in a zesty combination of spices and citrus juices, then grilled to perfection, resulting in juicy, flavorful bites that will tantalize your taste buds. 

When grilled, brisket, flank, and skirt steak excel in carne asada for their rich marbling, robust flavor, and tender texture. Each of these cuts has long, stringy grains that absorb marinades well. Because of the long grains, you only need to marinate the meat for 30 minutes to an hour, making this recipe ideal for quick meals during the week.

  • 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1/4 cup orange juice

  • 2 Tbsp lime juice

  • 3 cloves garlic

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce

  • 1 tsp ground cumin

  • 1 tsp Harvesting Nature’s Big Game Blend

  • 1 tsp black pepper

  • Garnish
  • 1 ea lime, cut into wedges

  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro


  • In a bowl, combine orange juice, lime juice, minced garlic, olive oil, ground cumin, chili powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Mix well to create the marinade.
  • Set aside 1 cup of the marinade for saucing. 
  • Use a meat mallet and pound the meat flat to tenderize. Ideal thickness will be 1/2-3/4 inches. 
  • Place the venison steak in a shallow dish or a resealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade over the steak, ensuring it is evenly coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Preheat your grill to 450-500 degrees F.
  • Remove the venison steak from the marinade and discard any used excess marinade.
  • Grill the steak for 4-5 minutes per side, or until it reaches your desired level of doneness. For medium-rare, aim for an internal temperature of 135F (57C).
  • Once cooked to your liking, remove the steak from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing. 
  • Slice the venison steak thinly against the grain.
  • Serve the sliced venison carne asada garnished with chopped fresh cilantro and lime wedges on the side. Add the extra marinade to the top of the steak.
  • Enjoy your delicious venison carne asada in a bowl with your favorite sides such as rice, beans, or grilled vegetables.
