Venison Stew

A perfect autumn alternative to a Sunday roast.

1 tablespoon of oil
1 onion
2 cloves of garlic
4 tablespoonfuls of plain flour
400 grams of venison
Salt and pepper
Dried mixed herbs
2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons of cranberry sauce
250 ml of stock
A handful of berries (blackberries, blueberries, redcurrants or blackcurrants would all work)

Pre-heat the oven to 100 Degrees.

Heat the oil in a large pan and add the chopped onion and garlic.

Put the flour in a bowl with some salt, pepper and mixed herbs.

Mix the venison with the flour and then add to the pan.

Brown the meat then add the vinegar and cranberry sauce, cook for a minute or so until it sizzles and then add the stock.

Bring to the boil then put in an oven proof dish and place in the over for an hour and 20 minutes.

Remove from the heat and drop the berries in, then cook for a further 10 minutes.

Serve with vegetables, potatoes and some Yorkshire puddings.


  1. ooo, I've only tried venison a few times and this looks great. Love the idea of using the berries and balsamic in it. Bet it goes amazing with the rich meat!

  2. Hi there! Venison is not something I have all that often either but I do really like it. This recipe is such a lovely cosy dinner for the cold dark nights. Do let me know how you get on if you try this one. Have a good weekend.
