How to prepare

Season, brown in oil, and braise with veg in beer or wine and stock for a quick-cook stew, or use in a venison chilli or curry. It takes about 45 mins or so to cook. Alternatively, use skewered with veg and chargrilled as kebabs.

Storage

Keep in the fridge below 5˚C. If you’re not going to eat it within a day or two, freeze your meat as soon as possible and always within the use by date. Once frozen, use within a month. Use on the day of defrosting.

Sometimes you may notice that your venison looks a little brown. Don’t worry – this is perfectly natural and safe! Red meat contains a protein called myoglobin, which goes brown when it meets oxygen. Venison contains more myoglobin than beef, so it goes brown much faster. It doesn’t mean that the meat isn’t fresh, or affect its flavour at all.
