VENISON BURGER with RICH MUSHROOM ONION GRAVY

VENISON BURGER with RICH MUSHROOM ONION GRAVY

It’s not very often that our world stops to focus on one really good meal.

This was one of those occasions.

Credit for these wonderfully flavoured burgers goes to friends,

whose snagged the beast, dressed it and seasoned  it so well.

The part I played was to cook it to a perfect medium rare

then serve it up with a wonderful rich gravy.

Magic Mushroom Powder

1/2 oz dried porcini mushrooms, finely ground

1/3 cup sea salt

1/2 tbsp dried chilis

1 tsp dried thyme

1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

Magic Mushroom Powder is such a versatile seasoning to keep on hand to add that touch of something special  to sauces and meats. Especially good added to a simple omelette.
