Default Braised venison

I don't cook very often, but when I get "inspired", I enjoy it.

I was looking around for some more ideas for venison and found this recipe on allrecipes.com:

Braised Venison with Rosemary and Shiitake

Ingredients
2 tablespoons bacon drippings
1 1/2 pounds venison, cut into 2 inch cubes
2 cups fresh shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced
2 medium onions, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons cognac or brandy (optional)
2 cups dry red wine
1 cube beef bouillon
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1 1/4 teaspoons dried rosemary
2 bay leaves
1 (8 ounce) package baby carrots (optional)
1 tablespoon cornstarch (optional)
2 tablespoons water (optional)

Directions

Melt the bacon drippings in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Sear the venison in two batches until nicely browned and remove. Stir in the shiitake, onions, and garlic; cook until softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour in the cognac, wine, and bouillon cube, simmer for 30 seconds to remove the alcohol flavor and dissolve the bouillon.
Stir in the venison, pepper, thyme, rosemary, and bay leaves. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer gently until the venison is tender, about two hours or more; adding water as needed.
If using baby carrots, add them during the last half hour of cooking. When the venison is tender, you may wish to thicken the sauce by dissolving the cornstarch in 2 tablespoons of water and stirring it into the sauce.


It's COLD here right now and I'm thinking of a warm stick-to-your-bones comfort food. I thought this looked so good, and I have lots of different home made red wines to choose from for this recipe. Maybe a cab/merlot wine would really be great.

It would probably be best with spaetzle, but I don't eat wheat anymore so I was thinking that it would be great with my hand-harvested wild rice.

This is the time of year for 'braised just about anything' over a big bowl of noodles, rice or mashed potatoes...

I love to cook. Unfortunately, I don't get much of a chance to work with venison much. I usually get a few pounds from my father every year. Hopefully, this year won't be any different. This recipe looks awesome. Thanks for posting!

I'm excited that we have 4 deer this year! So, I"m getting a chance to be creative with it, that's for sure.

Last week I made spicy stuffed peppers with a 50/50 mix of ground venison and ground lamb. This cold weather does bring out the inner cook in me!
