150ml beef stock (made with 2 tsp Knorr Touch of Taste beef concentrate)
2 tbsp redcurrant jelly
1 garlic clove, crushed
85g fresh or frozen blackberries
Serve with celeriac mash
Thickly peel and chop a small celeriac, then boil
with 3 small potatoes. Drain when tender and
mash with butter and plenty of seasoning.
Venison, an excellent source of protein, is low in
calories. It also supplies an easily absorbed form
of iron, so is ideal for pregnant and menstruating
women. Venison contains good levels of the energising B vitamins – a standard portion provides
60 per cent of our daily B12 requirement.
Heat the oil in a frying pan, cook the venison for 5 mins, then turn over and cook for 3-5 mins more, depending on how rare you like it and the thickness of the meat (cook for 5-6 mins on each side for well done). Lift the meat from the pan and set
aside to rest.
Add the balsamic vinegar to the pan, then pour in the stock, redcurrant jelly and garlic. Stir over quite a high heat to blend everything together, then add the blackberries and carry on cooking until they soften. Serve with the venison, celeriac mash (see below) and broccoli.
