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, is piping hot and there is no pink meat visible.
Advice for cuts of fillet, steaks, medallions etc: please note - Venison is low 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.
