SEARED VENISON LOIN and FRENCH ONION MUSHROOM SALAD

SEARED VENISON LOIN and FRENCH ONION MUSHROOM SALAD

I lied. Sorry. Yesterday I said you had seen the last of my French Onion Mushroom recipes but I lied. Here I am back again with another  meal for my week-long fix of French onions and mushrooms.  Love it so much I made another smaller batch to complete the week (recipe here).  Surprising just how versatile the recipe is. This doesn’t have to be restricted to wild game.  Any quick cooking tender piece of red meat will do. With the…

WILD WEDNESDAY: VENISON BURGERS

WILD WEDNESDAY: VENISON BURGERS

A ‘hunter/fisherman and amazing wild life photographer’ colleague of Francois recently shared some of his hunting good fortune with us. Deer meat is typically very lean so if over-cooked the result can be dry.   VENISON BURGERS I have no particular recipe for the burgers. just added minimal seasoning: a healthy splash of Worchestershire sauce, a good pinch of tarragon, and a sizeable dollop of Dijon (has to be Maille according my Frenchman) Gently mix together.
