HighlandVenisonVenison is low in fat and, like all red meat, provides plenty of iron and minerals. It makes a mouth-watering casserole when cooked with beer and winter vegetables. For the best flavour choose a real ale or one of the popular ‘designer’ beers.

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C.

  4. Transfer to a plate.
  5. Add the chopped onions to the casserole and cook gently over a low heat, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes until softened and golden.

  7. Stir in the shallots, whole baby carrots and parsnips plus venison and any meat juices.
  8. When the liquid comes to the boil, cover the casserole and put into the oven.
  9. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 1 ¼- 1 ½ hours until the meat is really tender.
