Dinner last night was braised boneless venison haunch (retrieved from the freezer, 2 pounds 14 ounces in weight so a little over a kilo) on a bed of carrot, celery, onion, small leek mirepoix, with a little port and red vermouth, and half as much red wine vinegar. Topped with sliced onion and some strips of uncooked bacon. Brought just to a boil in a heavy Le Creuset casserole, lid on, in oven at 325 degree Fahrenheit for 90 minutes.

Mr Jam Lord thought the meat was just right. Myself, just a touch too well done. Next time I will try cooking it at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for the same time.

Sides were mashed potatoes and oven roasted beets. Dessert was individual plum cobblers. Must be autumn - Italian blue plums are available once again.

Leftover venison (deliberate, I plan for leftovers) will be hash or maybe pot pie. Or maybe both.

yum

slow, coolish and long is good for most bits that run or work out in other disciplines.

underground /overground is a good combo with game

i dont think this should be in recipes but rat baits are a science and art.

Took some of the leftover braised venison and put it through the meat grinder. Mixed with pre-cooked then shredded potato, a beaten egg, a little flour. Browned in cast iron frying pan filmed with oil, flipped, browned other side.

Made a mustard sauce with venison stock (made from the bones) thickened with corn starch.

Not bad, considering I didn't have a recipe.
