It’s been a while! I have so much going on in my life, but that needs a completely different post! Ha!
I’m in my time of needing comfort, and since I’m currently single – food seems to be the best way to get a little bit of that..
I love hearty meals, and cooking with different kinds of food..
The first time I had any kind of venison was back home on our “farm”.. some boys had gone hunting and had given my dad some springbok. My dad enjoys his meat as much as I do,and cooks it on an outside on the fire very simply with just coarse salt, low and slow for hours, resulting in the meat being super tender and just divine.
I was super excited when I went shopping and found cuts of springbok shank for such a low price when compared to Lamb.
I’d never made it myself but figured I’d give it a try.
Turned out pretty well and it’s a dish I’d make for a large crowd of people because it’s a great flavorful meats and is great for a budget beating, although it has a very distinct flavor.
4 Venison Shanks
1 Can Tomato Chopped
150 ml Dry Red Wine
500ml Vegetable Broth
1 Medium Onion
2 Cloves Garlic
Salt and Pepper
In a pot, heat your oil and Brown your meat on all sides then remove.
Add your onions,garlic and stock. Place your shank back in and cook on a medium heat for 30minutes until the liquid has reduced.
Top up with your tomatoes, and wine.
Season with salt and pepper, reduce the heat to low, and let it simmer for two hours.
I served mine with mash and a few veggies, but now I think I would appreciate this more with samp, it would compliment each other wonderfully!
