Trio of venison recipe

Lee Maycock takes a trio of venison and works his magic to create a tasty dish in less than 30 minutes.

One of the great things about venison is you can do so much with each of the various cuts of lean and slender meat. With six species of deer in the UK each animal offers a different flavour, and whether you’re an experienced stalker or enthusiastic novice when it comes to game, there’s always something new to discover. The best part? You don’t have to hike to the Highlands or sit in the high seat for hours on end to enjoy it. So high-heel to Asda, Waitrose or any number of farm shops to claim your share! This trio of venison recipe serves four fast.
