HOW DO I COOK VENISON? COULD YOU GIVE SOME GENERAL GUIDELINES AND TIPS?

We recommend Food Standards Agency Scotland’s general food handling & cooking advice: www.foodstandards.gov.scot/food-safety-standards/food-safety-hygiene

Treat Venison as a cut of quality beef, then you can't go wrong. There is no myth or difficulty in cooking Venison.

Note: all cooking instructions on retail packs are guidelines only, all appliances vary.

Advice for manufactured products such as burgers, sausages, grillsteaks and meatballs: please note - Ensure that the product is cooked thoroughly and there is no pink meat visible.

Advice for pure cuts of fillet, steaks, medallions etc: please note - Venison does not contain any fat so it is essential not to overcook it - it would make it tough and dry. Follow the cooking instructions on the pack and rest the meat after cooking.
