Roasted in the oven after being marinated in red wine and herbs, etc., it is tender and moist. The packaging should have brief cooking instructions which it does not at present - I had to look in Robert Carrier as Delia Smith does not include this in her book.
Lovely flavoured venison but not as tender as I expected from the description. Cooking tips implied it would be great only cooking for a short roasting time. Having bought two, I will do long slow cooking instead. I'm sure it will improve the tenderness and also keep the great flavour!
My first introduction to venison and I enjoyed it.
Very good for special meal mot too expensive either
It was tough despite slow cooking Thanks for your comment.
