These two wild venison steaks are just the ticket for a fine dinner, a special occasion, or quite simply because you want one! Taken from the haunch of the deer, these steaks are tender and flavoursome when cooked pink. Add a simple salad and you have a paleo meal packed tight with nutrients, vitamins and above all – taste!
The wild venison we sell is sourced in the north west of England, from well managed estates in Cumbria and Lancashire. These estates preserve large areas of land, maintaining high levels of sustainability and ecology. Without these estates, a great number of natural habitats would be lost. The deer grazing freely on the estates which contributes to this fine ecological balance. This article gives more insight as to why. Being able to roam and graze freely means that the deer eat naturally, feeding on what they need for a healthy life. The result? We get to eat meat that is as natural as can be. It’s as close to Paleo as you can get without a bow and arrow and hours of hunting!
Venison tends to be lower in fat than other red meats, so it’s great if you’re watching your fat intake. The fats that are present are higher in Omega 3 (the good ones) and lower in Omega 6 (the ones we usually need less of). Add to that a high iron and vitamin B content and these wild venison steaks shape up to be a delicious and healthy meal.
Salt, pepper, a hot pan and five minutes is all you need to rustle up a tasty primal platter. But a good marinade lifts the flavours to another level and we have six great examples for you here. This sweet and savoury one particularly got the taste buds tingling.
Our venison is sourced in accordance with the Deer act of 1991 and in season. This means that we have a year-round supply of wild venison, depending on species.
