  • 500g chestnut mushrooms, halved
  • 2.5 kg diced venison

  • 2 beef stock cubes
  • 3 tbsp redcurrant jelly
  • salt and pepper
  • 50g cornflour

  • Pre-heat the oven 150°c
  • On the hob, heat the olive oil and butter in a large lidded casserole dish.  Add the onions and cook until softened, but not browned
  • Add the garlic, bacon and mushrooms and cook for a further minute
  • In a frying pan, brown the venison a handful at a time and add to the casserole.  When all the meat is browned, add the red wine, water, stock cubes, redcurrant jelly and salt and pepper
  • Bring to the boil and stir well.  Put the lid on the casserole and place in the middle of the oven – cook for 90 minutes
  • Remove from the oven.  Make a paste with the cornflour and two tablespoons of water.  Add as much of the paste to the casserole as it need to thicken the sauce – add a little at a time if you are not sure how much you will need
