Re: How to cook Reh?

Ahem, JBZ!

Have a look at this: www.bbcgoodfood.com/content/knowhow/glossary/venison/

Whenever I have cooked venison in the past I have treated it as I would beef. And, yes, you can just pan fry (like a steak).

Re: How to cook Reh?

Same as you like your beef/horse/etc.

We like rare, so a few minutes each side if a steak, longer for a roast, 20-25 min for a saddle.

It's very lean, so brushing with oil or larding is a good idea.

Re: How to cook Reh?

Get the pan nice and hot first, add a little oil, then dear ol' deer. If it's fillet, don't overcook, and try to get some good caramelisation on the bottom of the pan.

Once the meat has a good colour on both sides, remove from pan and deglaze the pan with some red wine, burning off the alcohol, and then add some deer blood and a little stock, and reduce, finally adding a couple of spoons of redcurrant jelly and a knob of butter, before serving.

Always remember with good quality fillet (of any animal), when you're asked how you like it served, the answer should always be:

"Just wipe it's arse and whip it's horns (antlers) off".

Other than using olive oil rather than butter, that's exactly what I did the other night. My daughter was sceptical at first, ate the remaining venison for lunch!

Concord grape jam also works well (I make my own).

Also, I start with red, but finish with white (wine).

Re: How to cook Reh?

On the rack or as filet?
Reh will become very dry if you leave it too long, don't go over "Medium" If the meat has the same firmness as the ball of your thumb it's perfect.
Wrap in Speck with chestnuts is pretty good.

Re: How to cook Reh?

I JUST had it beautifully done at a friend's, and he does it very simply:

Lightly coat the filets (which should be as dry as possible) in flour (it keeps the juices in apparently), melt some butter in a frying pan over medium heat, and fry each side for 3-5 minutes. If they are the filets at coop or micros, they shouldn't be very big, and won't need more time than that.

Afterwards you can season with salt and pepper. You can deglaze the pan with a bit of red wine too for a nice sauce.

In coop now they have caramelized chestnuts, rot kohl (red cabbage) and pumpkin spätzle that go amazingly with, and the whole meal takes about 15 minutes to do. Easiest dinner possible!

Bon appétit.
