Young Cook Finalist Recipe

  • Frances Noonan
  • Assumption Grammar, Ballynahinch
  • Key Stage 4

Ingredients

  • 325g venison haunch
  • 1 carrot, peeled and roughly chopped
  • ½ onion, roughly chopped
  • 250g potatoes
  • 25g Northern Ireland half–fat butter
  • 15ml Northern Ireland semi–skimmed milk
  • 50ml red wine
  • 1 tsp redcurrant jelly
  • 1 sprigs rosemary
  • 15g Northern Ireland half–fat butter
  • 125ml beef stock
  • Salt and pepper (to season)

Method

  • Pre–heat oven to 220ºC/Gas 8.
  • Heat the butter in a shallow casserole dish over a medium–high heat. Place the venison into the casserole dish and brown it on all sides.
  • Place the veg tightly around the meat and season with pepper.
  • Roast in the oven for 15 minutes.
  • Lower the heat to 180ºC and roast for another 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, transfer the meat to a plate and cover it with foil.
  • Add the wine, redcurrant jelly and rosemary to the pan with the veg still in it.
  • Heat over the hob and stir to release any caramelised bits of meat from the pan. Boil for 1–2 minutes, and then add the stock.
  • Turn down the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes to reduce the gravy slightly.
  • Strain the gravy, season to taste and serve with the roast venison.
