inch pie plate, letting excess extend over edge. Remove bottom sheet of paper.

By rights, this dish requires lengthy preparation of a stock made with the
bones and trimmings of venison. However, this is impossible for most of us
who buy venison as a boneless fillet.
A good beef stock is a satisfactory substitute and if you use a canned beef
bouillon (Campbells makes one) and prepare the chestnuts in advance, the
meal can be prepared very rapidly.
Melt half a tablespoon of butter in a heavy saucepan, add a good grinding
of black pepper and gently cook 50 g chopped green (spring) onions. Add 200
mL port and reduce. Add 300 mL stock and 24 peeled chestnuts and simmer for
about 20 minutes or until the sauce becomes syrupy. Set aside and keep
Heat a heat a heavy-based frying pan, add a tablespoon of butter. When it
is very hot, cook 8 medallions of venison, each about 1 cm thick.
Sear them for a maximum of 1 minute on each side, to ensure they are still
Meanwhile, butter a baking tray and slice onto it 4 figs. Place under a

Stuffed Venison Pinwhells

Yield: 8 servings
2 whole venison backstraps,
1 rolled out 1/4 in. thick
1 qt whole milk
2 ts wild game seasoning
1 lb velveeta cheese
1 cn rotel tomatoes with diced
1 chiles
2 lb thinly sliced lean bacon
1/2 c thinly sliced green onions
8 cloves garlic, finely mince

First, prepare the backstrap fillet. It's an extremely tender tubelike
piece of meat about 12 inches long and 2 to 3 inches in diameter. And
because of its shape, it can be cut around the perimeter, 1/4 inch thick,
and rolled out flat. To do this, you need a very sharp knife. Start by
laying out the fillet perpendicular to your body and making a shallow slice
about 1/4 inch deep in the meat. Then, as if slicing through and unrolling
paper towels from a roll, begin working around the outside perimeter of the
fillet until the backstrap comes out looking like a round steak. It takes a
little practice to do ... but you can do it! When the meat is ready, place
both pieces into a glass or plastic container and cover them with whole
milk. You want to marinate the venison for at least 6 hours, but preferably
overnight. The milk tenderizes the deer and helps to remove any unwanted
gamey flavor. After the marination process, remove the meat from the milk
(you can discard the milk), and pat the venison dry with several paper
towels. Then liberally sprinkle both sides with wild game seasoning and rub
it briskly into the meat. At this point, preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Then, in your food processor, mix together the Velveeta cheese and the
Rotel tomatoes until smooth and creamy. When you're ready to make the
pinwheels, spread a thin layer of the cheese mixture evenly over one side
of the deer. Then place a layer of bacon strips - side by side - on top of
the cheese. Finish up the preparation by lightly sprinkling on a little
sliced green onions and a little minced garlic. Now tightly roll up the
flattened fillets and set them aside momentarily. Then on the same work
surface, lay out another 8 to 10 strips of bacon side by side and put one
of the rolled backstraps on top of them. Now wrap the bacon strips around
the venison and pin them in place with toothpicks. When you are finished,
the backstrap should be completely encased in bacon strips. Repeat with the
other backstrap. All that's left is to take a sharp knife, slice the rolled
venison into 2 inch thick pinwheels, position them on a shallow cookie
sheet, and bake them - uncovered - in the oven for about 40 to 45 minutes.
You'll notice that a light sauce will form in the bottom of the cookie
sheet; you can use this to baste the pinwheels as they cook. The one thing
you don't want to do is overcook the venison - it will come out dry and
chewy instead of juicy and tender if you do! Note: If you don't have
wild game seasoning on hand, you can lightly sprinkle the venison with
salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and sweet basil as a

1/2 c red wine
1/4 c tomato paste
1 cn dark-red kidney beans,
-drained (16; oz)
1 c baby lima beans
3 c cooked rice or barley (opt)
I like to start off this chili with bacon. Once it browns, use 2
tablespoons of the bacon fat to wilt the vegetables - then one more tablespoon of the fat should be enough to brown the venison. Since the meat
is lean, brown it quickly over high heat.
1. Brown the bacon in a skillet over medium heat for about 10 minutes or
until golden brown. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and set aside.
Reserve 3 tablespoons of bacon fat; discard the rest.
2. Place 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat in a casserole; add the onion and
carrots, sprinkle with chili powder, cumin, marjoram and red pepper flakes,
then cook for 5 minutes. Add the reserved bacon.
3. Pour the remaining tablespoon of bacon fat back into the skillet. Brown
the venison over medium-high heat in small batches and remove to the
casserole with a slotted spoon. (The meat should brown quickly, so raise
the heat to high if necessary.)
4. Add the tomatoes, broth, wine and tomato paste. Bring to a simmer and
cook, uncovered, for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat if
the chili begins to boil.
5. Add the kidney beans and lima beans, then adjust the seasonings. Simmer
10 minutes longer or until meat is tender.
6. Serve the chili hot in 6 bowls (over rice or barley, if desired).
