Known as the food of kings for a reason, venison is one of those special meats that seem to have it all. Nutrient-dense, lean, and ultra-tender, our Axis venison is an excellent example of just how good game meat can be. Also known as the backstrap, venison short loin is one of the tenderest cuts available. Masterfully broken down, this portion of meat has all the fat, gristle, and silver skin removed by our expert butchers, so you’re getting nothing but delicious savory meat.
Our venison is sourced from wild deer that enjoy a natural and varied diet, producing not only a healthier, more complete set of micronutrients, but also exceptionally complex flavor and tender texture. Sourced from Maui Nui, our Axis venison short loin is not only an award-winning source of protein, but it is also one of the most environmentally conscious sources of meat. To minimize stress, our Axis venison is harvested entirely at night. Swiftly and efficiently done, this practically eliminates the stress that more generic animals undergo during the slaughtering process.
Venison short loin keeps well in the refrigerator for up to four days or well wrapped in the freezer for up to a month. A delicious and versatile portion there’s no prep required, and thanks to the fact that venison benefits from less cooking, not more, it’s a real time-saver in the kitchen. Delicately flavored this cut wants to be cooked quickly and served rare for maximum enjoyment!
