Red Wine Braised Venison


I bought some venison recently, and decided i’d have a go at cooking it…

The dish consisted of two small venison fillets, braised in a red wine, beef stock, butter, and leek mixture… Cooked until just medium rare.

It was served over a peccorino (sheeps cheese similar in texture to parmesan) and cream mash, and had some rosemary buttered peas and carrots thrown in for some form of nutritional balance.

The peas were fresh organic peas I bought from the cityfarm fruit and vege markets.

I think the venison was still a little tough… but other than that it was all quite tasty.

The wine was a delicious fruity NZ Pinot Noir from Central Otago… Rippon Estate… sublime.
