  • About


  • 4 venison steaks
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 bay leaves, crumbled
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons softened butter
  • red or black currant jelly


Choose the steaks from the leg if possible, and have them cut from 1 inch to 1 inch in thickness. Trim them neatly; season with salt, freshly ground black pepper and crumbled bay leaves, and marinate them in olive oil and lemon juice for 2 hours before cooking. Drain, and grill as you would beef, turning them often and allowing rather longer than for a beef steak. Venison must be served immediately, or it will become tough.

To serve: transfer steaks on to a heated serving dish and garnish with softened butter to which you have added red or black currant jelly, to taste.
