Nutritional information per 100g as sold:
As venison is extremely lean with a low fat content, great care should be taken not to allow the meat to dry out when roasting. To prevent over cooking, first brown the joint (see grilling recommendations).
Roasting times Gas mark 6/ 400oF/ 200oC are:
10-12 mins per 450gm/lb for rare medium
12-15 mins per 450gm/lb for medium to well done
Always allow the meat to rest for 10 -20 mins at the end of cooking.
To cook well done, first make deep slits with a knife and insert sticks of butter, margarine or solidified olive oil, then brown the joint. Place in a dish with some liquid (water, wine, ale or orange juice) and braise 170oc/ 325of/Gas Mark 3 for 2 – 2 1/2 hours, basting frequently. The fat will come out of the meat during cooking leaving it moist. Skim off the fat and you’ll have some superb gravy!
