Tonight my wife cooked up 4 nice hind quarter strip steaks on the new George Forman grill from my button buck from last year to go with a nice healthy meal. Half an Idaho baker each with low fat sour cream, low fat cheddar, and green onions, a nice salad with olive oil and vinegar, a 9 grain baked baguette, and the venison done with the same spices she uses on the regular grill...not bad for a "ten minute meal...." Not bad, but she only did them for 3 minutes and they were overdone slightly. Not anywhere near how tender they would have done grilled nice and rare on the REAL grill. And they did not have the taste or color of cooking on a regular grill either. So far we like the new George Foreman Grill for chicken, and a few other things, but the Tuna Steaks from Friday were the same way, it said 6-8 minutes, I went 6 exactly, and THEY were overdone as well. SO my advice would be to go two minutes or less on venison, it cooks from both sides at once, so it cooks through much faster than one side at a time on the "real" grill. And adjust your cooking times on the grill for other meats accordingly, you can always put it back ON, but once overcooked you live with it.... We named my big buck "George Foreman" since he was a fighter and now he's Grillin' SO this morning I said 'Let's try George Foreman tonight on the George Foreman," but she suggested "Junior" for the first time just in case it didn't turn out and we knew Junior is "melt in your mouth" tender normally. Good call, "George" would have been much tougher overcooked.
