Venison Backstrap Striploin from New Zealand (300g)

Horizon Farms


One deskinned whole striploin (backstrap) of venison from New Zealand. One striploin weighs around 300g (10.5oz.) and is closely trimmed, steak-ready. This top-quality venison striploin is exceptionally lean and full of flavor. You can cut the striploin into smaller steak medallions as seen in the images. This delicate steak needs to be cooked with olive oil or butter on slow heat to medium-rare in a fry pan or skillet. Not more, not less. Tender and full of flavor - made for special occasions. Serve with an all-natural blueberry sauce for that exquisite touch. See the cooking instructions below.

Venison, the other red meat. Often found on the menus of upscale restaurants throughout the world. Most folks associate venison with gamey odor and tough meat - that is most likely wild venison. Give our free-range farmed venison a chance, it'll change your concept on venison.

Our premium quality venison comes from deer that is sustainably all-time pasture-raised in small herds on very large pastures run by real family farms of New Zealand. The deers are purely bred for taste. The difference between pasture-raised venison and wild venison is subtle delicate flavor and superb tenderness mostly due to a healthy, low-stress life and a careful selective breeding process. It goes without saying that the animals have never been treated with antibiotics or growth hormones.

✔ Humanely raised and treated with respect. Sustainably raised in small herds on large pastures in Canterbury Highlands and Plains of the South Island, New Zealand.

✔ No subtherapeutic use of antibiotics. No growth-promoting hormones, no nasties. No factory farming. Domesticated deer live a stress-free and healthy life and are harvested on the field.

✔ Compared to wild venison: Domesticated venison meat has no gamey texture and taste. It has a consistent flavor profile and is tender and mildly flavored.

✔ Deer naturally feed on grass all their life and are fed all-natural vitamins and nutritions, haylage (grasses and legumes), and silage (green foliage crops) in winter when fresh, green pasture is limited.

Prepare a skillet or fry-pan with olive oil or unsalted butter. Low-to medium heat. You need to hear the medallions sizzling.

Keep turning them often so they are cooked evenly on all sides. Venison is very lean and cooks very fast - make sure you don't overcook them. Use a thermometer or your finger to determine doneness. Venison should not be cooked past medium-rare for the best taste experience.

Once the internal temperature of the striploin medallions has reached 50 degrees Celsius (122 degrees Fahrenheit) remove them from the heat and place them on a cutting board.

Allow them to rest for 5 minutes. Juices will flow out so make sure your cutting board has a juice groove. By the way, the red juice is actually myoglobin and not blood.

One deskinned whole striploin (backstrap) of venison

I slice the backstrap down the middle and cook small portions at a time. I love the taste of this Venison.
I almost want to eat it raw!! I order this anytime I get a chance.


Translated from Japanese: This venison loin steak has no smell and is very delicious!
It's safe and secure, and I’ll order it again!
I want to buy it again!

Challenging venison for the first time!

Translated from Japanese: Beautiful meat arrived 😊
I want to eat it immediately.

You can feel the good quality

Translated from Japanese: It was a fine and soft steak. The fat is moderate, it seems to be light and it’s tasty. Not only is it delicious, but it’s also nutritious and I didn't have heartburn or an stomach upset, so it's the number one steak I want to keep reordering. I made a sauce by adding lemon juice and a little sugar to the organic wild blueberries that are also sold here, which also went well with the steak!
