Method

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan, cook the venison for 5 mins, then turn over and cook for 3-5 mins more, depending on how rare you like it and the thickness of the meat (cook for 5-6 mins on each side for well done). Lift the meat from the pan and set aside to rest.
  2. Add the balsamic vinegar to the pan, then pour in the stock, redcurrant jelly and garlic. Stir over quite a high heat to blend everything together, then add the blackberries and carry on cooking until they soften. Serve with the venison, celeriac mash (see below) and broccoli.

Delicious!!!! Cant believe the sauce with garlic, balsamic and blackberry could taste so good. Never had celeriac before and will def have again, nice alternative to plain mash.

I made this last night & it was absolutely wonderful!
I think the sauce would also work with steak or lamb.

This was delicious! Used raspberry jam as a substitute for the red currant jelly.

We had this for tea today absolutely delicious extremely tasty, I only put 1 tbsp of redcurrent jelly in though as it is quite sweet and I didn't add the blackberries, we would definately do this again next time we have venison for tea.

Absolutely delicious. Never tried venisonl - never tried celeriac either, so double first for me! Might try tiloaa's suggestion about chopping it up and cooking it in the sauce next.

The family really enjoyed this meal. I bought the venison steaks in a supermarket promotion and hadn't tried cooking venison before. I adapted the recipe by cutting up the venison and cooking it in the sauce. The result was delicious, not strong or gamey
