Rummy Deer

Tender cuts of venison, marinated in a brown sugar, soy sauce, rum and cola mixture, wrapped in turkey bacon and baked
Yield: 

Varies, depending on size of cut of venison
Ingredients: 

1/4 cup rum*
brown sugar
1/4 can cola**
1/2 cup soy sauce***
uncooked turkey bacon
Instructions: 

1.
Combine 1/4 can of pepsi with a shot of rum (about 1/4 cup rum or a few
drops rum flavoring); stir. Add 1/2 cup of soy sauce, and enough brown
sugar to make a nice thick paste. Mix well with a fork.

2. Lay meat out in a shallow dish that can be covered; pour marinade
on top. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1/2 hour, no more than 4
hours.

3. After meat has marinated to your liking, take 2-3 strips
of uncooked turkey bacon, and wrap around the pieces of meat. If using
tenderloin, wrap the entire piece in slices of the bacon.

4. Place meat on a cooking pan (jellyroll pans work the best!). Once
all pieces are wrapped and on the pan, spoon a bit of the marinade on
the wrapped meat.

5. Transfer to a 350 degree oven, and cook for about 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, spoon/baste the meat with more marinade. Discard any
leftover marinade after this. Cook for another 15-20 minutes, depending
on the thickness of the meat. When you can start to smell the meat in
other parts of your home, its almost done! Cook venison as you would
beef.**** 
 
Serve with green salad, buttered cooked sweet potatoes, and rolls. Enjoy!

Additional Notes: 

*Or rum flavoring. I like using real rum better.

**We use Pepsi.

***We use the Kikkoman low sodium.

****The meat will get very dark, due to all of the sugars used; don’t worry, you’re not burning it unless it smells burnt!
