Marinated venison steak with mushrooms

Preparation time: 20 minutes
Marinating Time: 8 hours
Cooking time: 10–15 minutes

1 1/2 pounds venison steak, trimmed of fat
1 garlic clove, crushed
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 cup fat-free Italian salad dressing
Black pepper
1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
Nonstick cooking spray

The night before cooking, place steak in a gallon-size resealable plastic bag. Add crushed garlic clove, oregano, and salad dressing. Shake well and refrigerate overnight.

Remove steak from bag and discard the marinade. Grill the steak indoors or outdoors, seasoning with black pepper to taste and turning once. (For medium steak, internal temperature should be about 165°F.)

While grilling the steak, spread the mushrooms on several sheets of paper towel in a single layer. Spray with nonstick cooking spray, then transfer to a medium skillet and sauté until desired tenderness.

Top venison with mushrooms and serve.
