Grilled rare venison rump

This week my boss gave me a gift of 290 g of venison rump that her husband had hunted and processed. It was vacuum packed and frozen. Her cooking advice was to use high heat, cook it quickly and rest it well.

I did a little on-line searching on how to cook venison and came up with some tips. I’ve listed them below in the recipe.

I’m so grateful to my boss, she’s retiring soon and I will really miss her. She loves good food, cooks well and understands the joy of eating for pleasure and health. We often just chat about food.

  12. Gently and with love put the meat into the fry pan and count to fifteen slowly
  13. Turn the meat and count to fifteen slowly
  14. Do that until about five minutes has elapsed (this all depends on the thickness of the cut of meat)

  25. Spoon some sauce on the meat
  26. Photograph the plate
  27. Eat the food

Tips

  • Deer fat tastes bad so cut it off and throw it away
  • Venison is very lean so use high heat and do NOT overcook
  • If you like meat well done do NOT cook venison
  • A meat thermometer is a good thing to use if you have one
  • Praise the hunter and the hunted for the meat is GOOD

Okay so the recipe reads oddly right! This week I was given a little advice from a fellow Canberra blogger who shared an article about copyright and recipes. Basically, if you want to demonstrate the work is yours make the recipe your own with your own words and style. Yep, this is what I call my style 😛

The venison tasted really nice. It was rare and tender just how I like my meat. I’d definitely cook venison again. It was delicious. I didn’t adorn the plate with a heap of extra vegetables. I really wanted to enjoy the meat as the star of the meal. I really did enjoy the meat.

Dessert is raspberries and chocolate flavoured whipped cream (unsweetened)

  1. “If you like meat well done do NOT cook venison” this is a huge tip that A LOT of people leave out of their recipes. This looks fantastic! I’m going to have to call up some hunter friends and see who has some venison to spare! Cheers

  2. That’s a good looking piece of cooked rare venison rump right there, and the pepper sauce looks amazing too! Thanks for the tip on resting the meat. Great recipe! 🙂
