March - Venison Croquettes

¬† ūüď∑¬†The Field

This month we're twinning a touch of French cuisine with our classic Woodmill flavours. Crispy & succulent, this recipe brings a creative new twist to what is a delightfully simple cut of venison.

Serves 3

Ingredients
500g premium diced venison steak
1 red onion (finely diced)
50g finely diced mushrooms (any type)
500ml milk
tsp ground coriander
1-2tbsp cornflour
1x beef stock cube

Method
1. Put the onion, mushrooms, milk and coriander into a casserole dish with the meat.

2. Bring to a simmer then put into the oven at 120C for 2.5 hours.

3. Take out the oven, drain off liquid into a saucepan and simmer on the hob. Meanwhile put the cooked venison into the fridge to cool.

4. Reduce the liquid by 50% then thicken with the cornflour to from a heavy gelatinous sauce. Make sure to add the flour slowly and stop when you get a thick gooey texture (similar to custard). Put into the fridge to cool.
