Roe Deer

Recipe by Daniel Myers

The original source recipe says to make this during winter, so I'm way out of season. This is a very nice meat dish with a creamy sauce. The flavors of garlic and spices combine in a way that counters any gamey flavor in the venison.


2 pounds venison steak
2 cups almond milk
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ginger
salt to taste
lard or butter


Roast or bake venison without seasoning until just done, optionally adding a little fat (butter, lard, or bacon). Allow to cool. Mix remaining ingredients and bring to a low boil. Simmer until thick. Meanwhile, cut the venison into thin strips. Sautée in lard or butter until heated through. Top with sauce and serve.

Roe Deer. The loin roasted or in pies, slightly larded, with hot pepper or with garlic sauce in winter, made of garlic and cinnamon and ginger, tempered with almond milk, -- the almonds tempered in warm water, -- and fried in grease or in bacon fat, and the sauce therein.
