Prep time: 10 min
Cooking time: 30 min
  • Step 1

    Boil a kettle of water. Rinse the rice in a sieve. Transfer to a saucepan with a good pinch of salt. Add plenty of boiled water. Bring to the boil and cook until the rice is just tender, approx. 20-25 mins. Drain once cooked (N.B. you'll need to start frying off the venison for the stroganoff after 15 mins).
  • Step 2

    Season the venison. Once the rice has been cooking for 15 mins, heat 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan. When the pan is very hot, stir-fry the venison for approx. 1 min or so, to seal and brown them. Transfer to a plate.
  • Step 3

    Lower the pan heat slightly. Add a splash more oil, the shallots, kale and mushrooms. Stir-fry on a medium heat for approx. 3-4 mins, until the mushrooms have softened.
  • Step 4

    Add the venison back to the pan. Stir-fry for 1 more min. Add both the paprikas, then the wine. Let the mixture bubble until the wine is almost all absorbed.
  • Step 5

    Add the crème fraîche. Let it gently bubble for a couple of mins to thicken the sauce. Add a squeeze of lemon juice and season to taste. Stir in the dill. Serve with the cooked and drained rice.
