Organic venison loin medallions, reared on West Country farms and prepared in the Riverford butchery. Tender, succulent and lean, this is a fantastic cut – the venison equivalent of fillet steak. The medallions will cook in minutes, and are best treated simply so the quality shines through; just fry or grill until blushing.

Approximately 2 venison loin medallions per pack.

Our organic meat delivery is in insulated packaging to keep cool on your doorstep.

Our venison has a short season - we estimate it will be available until around the 15th November.

Cooking

Oil and season the medallions. Heat a frying or griddle pan until smoking hot. Fry the medallions for 1-2 mins each side, depending how rare you like them. Let them rest somewhere warm for 5 mins before serving.

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.

About our venison

All our venison comes from small organic herds reared on Westcountry family farms in Looe and Exmoor. They graze a natural diet of clover-rich grass and wild flowers, roaming the land in natural rutting groups. The result is a tender and very healthy meat, with a milder, less gamey flavour than wild venison. Venison is a healthy meat; lower in fat than skinned chicken breast, higher in iron than any other red meat, low in cholesterol and brimming with Omega-3s.
