Difficulty: Easy


  • A knob of butter
  • Olive oil
  • 2 venison haunch steaks
  • 2 small banana shallots, peeled and finely diced
  • 300g chestnut mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 tbsp brandy
  • 1-2 tbsp mushroom ketchup, to taste, or 1 tsp of Worchestershire sauce mixed into 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 100ml beef stock

  4. Add the honey, mustard, stock, and ketchup, then bubble for a minute, before removing from the heat. 
  5. Stir in the crème fraîche off the heat, then place back on the hob over a low heat to warm.
  6. To serve, place the venison steaks on plates with your vegetables of choice. Spoon over the sauce and enjoy.
