Product description

Naturally lean and layered with complex flavours befitting of this natural product, venison* haunch steak is a great steak alternative. Quickly seared and served pink, this detail being essential as the fat content is very low. Classically paired with earthy flavours and the sweetness of fruit, we love smashed celeriac and a quick reduction of the pan juices with port or red wine.

Whilst whole haunch joint is so often roasted and braised these individual leg muscles are brilliant for a quick cook or even eating raw in tartares or carpaccios.

Alternatively, slice these muscles very thinly and flash fry them for jungle curries and perhaps tacos with wonderful burnt tomato and chilli salsas.

Seared and sliced In a sandwich they pair well with pickled fennel, pickled walnut ketchup or sitting high on celeriac rémoulade. A very versatile cut, nonetheless to be cooked quickly and with a leaning towards rare.

*Swaledale wild venison live a natural life on the Harewood Estate in West Yorkshire. These slow grown fallow deer are free to roam and forage amongst the bounty of the forest and pastures for a nutrient-rich diet of various grasses, herbs, fruit, nuts, acorns and wildflowers. Swaledale wild venison is lean and tender meat, naturally marbled and with a rich and dense umami flavour. All of our venison is dry-aged for 10-days on the carcass to intensify its gamy character. Venison haunch steak is Always Fresh Never Frozen®, butchered to order, vacuum packed, and shipped in recyclable packaging to arrive safely insulated and ready to enjoy. Please note Swaledale Butchers® work in harmony with the life cycle of wild deer, therefore this is a seasonal product only available from early autumn to late winter.


Wild, estate-reared venison.

Cooking advice

  1. Take venison haunch steaks out of fridge, remove packaging, pat dry with kitchen paper, pop on a plate and allow to reach room temperature
  2. Oil* the steaks and season generously with coarse sea salt and cracked black pepper
  3. Heat a non-stick pan or cast iron skillet until smoking hot
  4. Add the steaks to the dry pan resisting the urge to move them and turn after 90 seconds - a rich colour should have been achieved 
  5. Once other side has cooked for 90 seconds, reduce heat slightly, turn every 30 seconds or so, repeat for a total cooking time approx. 4-6 minutes for a medium-rare steak
  6. Remove from pan and rest for 6 minutes

*Select an oil with a high smoking point and neutral flavour
