On my travels back from Inverness this week, I stopped at the House of Bruar near Blair Atholl, they have an amazing Food Hall with everything Scottish and some.  I picked up some lovely venison from Highland Game, Purveyors of fine foods in Dundee. With some Chorizo left over I decided this recipe, which was absolutely delicious and rich in flavour.

Serves 2

300g Diced Venison

75g Chorizo – sliced/diced

1 onion chopped

1 crushed garlic

1 tbsp smoked paprika

salt & pepper

250ml beef stock

100ml red wine (I used Merlot, perfect with venison)

1 Bay leaf

1 carrot sliced or you could use butternut squash

1 tbsp flour

 

  1. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a pan, light coat the venison with flour and add to pan to brown all over. Season.
  2. Add the Chorizo, garlic and onion and stir through for few mins until golden.
  3. Sprinkle in the paprika and add the carrots, pour in the beef stock and red wine, bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 2-3 hours.                                                                                                                            20160409_173408
  4. I served with some wild rice but it is also lovely with boiled potatoes and green veg.

YUMMY!
