Venison Haunch Steak 2 x 170g


Venison has a delicate, gamey taste and is a great alternative to beef fillet steak. Cut from the haunch, these steaks are naturally lean and need only a few minutes in a frying pan. We recommend cooking venison in butter as it really adds to the flavour of the steak when cooked.

This pack contains approximately 2 pieces.

Roasted venison haunch with red wine and rosemary gravy



for the roast

  • 2 tbsp oil for frying, e.g. vegetable or sunflower
  • 650g venison haunch
  • 2 carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 sticks celery, roughly chopped

for the gravy

  • 100ml red wine
  • 2 tsp redcurrant jelly
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 250ml beef stock
  • ½ tsp arrowroot (optional)
  • salt and pepper


Prep time: 15 min
Cooking time: 45 min


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 220°C/Gas 8.

For the roast

  • Step 1

    Heat the oil in an oven and flameproof roasting tin, shallow casserole dish or frying pan over a medium-high heat.

  • Step 2

    Add the haunch and brown it on all sides. Place the veg tightly around the meat and season with pepper. Roast in the oven for 15 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Lower the heat to 180°C/Gas 4 and roast for another 15 minutes. Remove from the oven, transfer the meat to a plate and cover it with foil.

Make the gravy

  • Step 1

    While the meat rests. Add the wine, redcurrant jelly and rosemary to the pan with the veg still in it. Heat over the hob and stir to release any caramelised bits of meat from the pan. Boil for 1-2 minutes, then add the stock.

  • Step 2

    Turn down the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes to reduce the gravy slightly. If you prefer your gravy slightly thicker, whisk the arrowroot with 1-2 teaspoons of water to make a smooth paste and stir into the gravy.

  • Step 3

    Strain the gravy, season to taste and serve with the roast venison.
