Roasted Venison with Caramelised Baby Onion Tart a Sloe Wine Sauce

Serves 2


2 x 6-8 oz Venison Loin, 4 oz puff pastry, 2oz baby onions, ½ oz butter, 1 tspn Redcurrant Jelly, 1 sprig Fresh Thyme, egg wash.
Sauce: 1 oz sliced shallot, 4 peppercorns, crushed, 1 bay leaf, 2 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar, 150ml (1/4 pint) Game Stock/consommé, 75ml Port, 75ml Sloe Wine, ½ tspn plain flour, ½ tspn butter, 1 tspn Redcurrant jelly.

Place the shallots, peppercorns, bay leaf and vinegar in a pan, bring to the boil & reduce until almost dry, add the port and wine and reduce by two-thirds. Add the stock or consommé, return to the boil & reduce by a third. Mix the flour & butter together and whisk into the liquid. Simmer for a few minutes, allowing the flour to cook out and then add the redcurrant jelly, allowing it to melt into the sauce, strain the sauce and keep warm.
Meanwhile, roll out the pastry into 2 rectangles approx 4’’x 2’’ pricking with a fork, place on a greased baking sheet. Heat a the butter in a frying pan & add the onions & redcurrant jelly, cook until they start to caramelise, remove from the heat and allow to cool. Brush the pastry with egg wash and arrange the onions side by side along the centre portion of the pastry and cook in preheated oven Gas 6 for approx. 15/20 minutes or until golden brown.
Heat some oil & butter in a roasting tray. Season the Venison well with salt and black pepper. Once sizzling, place the meat in the tray and fry for a few minutes, until well coloured on all sides. Place the Venison in the pre heated oven for 8 minutes for medium rare, 10-12 minutes for medium, turning the meat over half way through the desired cooking time. Remove from the oven & allow to rest.
To serve, slice and arrange the Venison next to the Onion Tart and spoon the sauce over & around the meat.
