Well it must be deer hunting season in the UK because I have just picked up 5 venison loins from my butcher.........

Anyone got any good recipes please?

I've got one in a slow oven now with red wine, christmas spices and bouquet garni, but don't want to cook all of them this way.

No prob Sharon. I was asking the poster to put recipes into the sub section then I realised I could do it myself. Long as they don't think I'm stealing their thunder. :Eeek:

This one looks a nice one,

Ingredients
750g/1½lb loin fillet venison
butter
1 wine glass blackcurrant liqueur
125ml/4fl oz strong game or beef stock
1 tsp tomato purée
black pepper, freshly ground

Method
1. Bone the venison, if using loin.
2. Cut the venison into 10cm/4in discs (or collops) and beat lightly with a rolling pin to flatten them.
3. Fry gently in butter for one minute or so on each side.
4. Pour in the blackcurrant liqueur and flame.
5. Remove the venison from the pan, put into a serving dish and keep warm.
6. Meanwhile, as the flames die away from the blackcurrant liqueur, pour in the game or beef stock, and let it bubble for two or three minutes.
7. Stir in the tomato purée and season well with pepper. At this stage the sauce may be really quite thick and it would be a good idea to add 2 tbsp water and any juices that have seeped from the venison.
8. Dip your finger in to see if it tastes nice. If you have a good, runny, rich sauce, beat in a knob of butter to make it really rich and shiny. Then strain it through a fine sieve over the venison.

Hmm that looks a good one, thank you!
I think the meat would be rare though - I'm assuming you can eat venison rare??

If you have a lot of time as it needs over night ,,



Ingredients
500g/1lb 2oz boneless venison from the haunch, trimmed and cut into 4cm/1½in pieces
500g/1lb 2oz chuck steak, trimmed and cut into 4cm/1½in pieces
200ml/7fl oz tawny port
4 shallots, finely chopped
1 tbsp pickled walnuts in jars, finely chopped
25g/1oz plain flour
700ml/1¼pt beef stock
500g/1lb 2oz portobello or large flat mushrooms, cut into wedges
500g/1lb 2oz puff pastry
1 egg, beaten and mixed with ½ tsp salt

Method
1. Put the venison and steak pieces in a heavy plastic food bag and add the port. Seal and leave to marinate in a bowl in the fridge for at least a day or two. This will give the meat a stronger flavour.
2. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. In a large bowl, mix together the shallots, pickled walnuts and flour with a teaspoon each of salt and pepper.
3. Lift the meat from the port with a slotted spoon, reserving the marinade, and stir the meat into the flour, coating it thoroughly.
4. Transfer the mixture to a large ovenproof casserole. Stir together the reserved marinade and stock and stir into the casserole along with the mushrooms.
5. Put the casserole over a medium heat and bring to the boil. Cover and put in the oven for 2 hours, until the meat is tender when pierced with a fork.
6. Remove the lid and put the casserole over a high heat. Bring to the boil and leave to simmer for 15-20 minutes, until the sauce thickens. Season to taste. Spoon into the pie dish and leave to cool thoroughly.
7. Roll the pastry out to an oval 2.5cm/1in larger than the pie dish. Trim the edges and cut a strip the width of the dish rim from the edge of the dough.
8. Brush the rim of the dish with water and lay the strip of dough on the rim, pressing down. Brush the dough strip with the egg glaze.
9. Roll the dough oval around the rolling pin and lift onto the pie dish. Press the dough firmly to seal it to the strip.
10. Trim the excess dough and brush the top with the egg glaze. Make two small slits in the centre of the dough to allow the steam to escape.
11. Roll out any trimmings and use to cut out flowers or leaves to decorate the pie. Brush the docorations with the egg glaze. Chill the pie for at least 15 minutes before baking.
12. Turn the oven up to 220C/425F/Gas 7 and bake the pie for 30 minutes or until the pastry is puffed, crisp and golden. Serve with steamed cabbage and mashed potato.

Hi Roadtraveller, I copied yours into the "recipes" sub section. I did this for anyone looking for the recipe in the future. They may not go through "posts" on food but should go direct to "recipes"

Hence the "moved" in the title. Hope you approve.
