Red Wine Reindeer

I thought I wouldn't be able to post a recipe like this until after the hunt in September!  Yesterday I took a Becoming an Outdoorswoman class on field dressing.  Basically I spent the day with a bunch of other women field dressing a bull and cow elk.  After the class, the instructor gave us some reindeer steaks and ground reindeer from the animals the class before us did!

The steaks spent 24 hours marinading in red wine and garlic.  While the steaks warmed to room temperature, I reduced the marinade with some more garlic, onion, and red pepper.  Then they went to the grill, about five minutes on each side, basted with the reduced marinade.  Fantastic!
