Alpine Peppered Venison on Rainforest Herb Linguini
This is an easy dish with very complex flavour from the herb pasta, the seasoned meat, the wild earthy mushrooms and the aromatic scented jus which you really only taste half way through the dish if it’s done right. 16
a large handful
Game Meat Jus*
Trim the venison of silver and sinew (reserve for making stock).
Cook the pasta in salted water for around 11 minutes or until al denté.
Strain the pasta, add a dash of oil and allow to cool.
Blanch the greens in water, refresh in iced water.
Seal the venison in a hot pan and roast in a preheated oven at 200°C for 12 minutes and then rest for the same amount of time; season with Alpine Pepper.
Slice the mushrooms and sauté in a warm pan with in olive oil to which butter has been added; when the mushrooms are golden add the pasta and greens, toss until warmed through and the pasta starts to become crisp.
