2 venison tenderloins
4 large onions
½ cup virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt

Prepare onions - peel and slice. Brush each slice with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Grill onions for 6-8 minutes each side until lightly charred and cooked through, transfer onions to a chopping board and chop coarsely. Place onion in a bowl with balsamic vinegar, set aside. Brush venison tenderloins with olive oil and place on hot BBQ grilling plate. Grill for 3-4 minutes each side until rare. Transfer to a warm platter, and rest for 5 minutes. Slice into medallions to serve, top with relish. Serve with creamy mash potato and steamed garlic beans.
