  2. When ready, grill the chops over a hot fire until medium rare, about 2 to 3 minutes each side.

  4. Serve with your favorite side dish.

  5. From Executive Chef Mark Spelman of the Camino Real Hotel in El Paso, TX. published in The Heartland Advertizer, August 9, 1995 NOTE: Cervena is a natural tender venison from New Zealand. This award winning dish is easy to prepare and ready in a matter of minutes. With a nutritional profile matching skinless chicken breast and salmon, Cervena has captured the attention of red meat eaters who watch their fat intake. "Coming from the South, I'm a big grill fan," says Chef Spelman. "The mild yet meaty flavor of Cervena tastes wonderful when grilled. It has turned my favorite grill dishes into healthier low-fat meals."
