Venison fillet


Venison Fillet Recipe

Summary : No hunter in my family, so it is not always easy to find game and even less deer fillet, but this time it was Monsieur Masson who gave it to me. What a pleasure to work with this meat, not a bit of fat, it is so tender that the knife slices it very delicately. I also really like this red wine sauce, you can easily thicken it with Maïzena Sauceline which loosens directly in the hot sauce. But if you are a fan of butter, whip it completely in butter and just before serving, add a square of very dark chocolate and there you will have a sauce to die for. A great moment with this fillet of venison and this fabulous sauce, all the plates were clean at the end of the meal. Of course if you don’t have venison fillet you can adapt this recipe with beef. I chose a partner wine to cook and especially to accompany my venison fillet, I like to cook with the wine that I will serve, here with this beautiful wine from Vaison la Romaine and these 14 °, its tannins have perfumed my sauce, a marvel. Souvenir recipe from 2016

A thought to all those connected from abroad in love with French cuisine and these wines, here is a great opportunity for you to buy a quality wine, to accompany my recipe for Fillet of venison. I selected this Côte du Rhône wine from the Terre de Gaulhem estate in Vaison la Romaine after tasting it, I loved it. I like the Côtes du Rhône and particularly those with character, here with this 2015 vintage and its beautiful 14 °, already by pouring into the glass, this ruby red nectar immediately lights up your table. I love these beautiful notes of ripe Grenache and especially these beautiful tannins.
