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.
