Hunters Pie


Another first for me tonight, venison. I’ve eaten venison in restaurants, but I’ve never cooked with it. I found the original recipe on Game to Eat but adapted it slightly as I only had 450g of venison and I find sweet potato complements venison really well. I served it with turnip.

Hubby really enjoyed it, but I wasn’t too sure; it was almost too “meaty” for me. I prefer a venison steak. Hubby is pleased as he has leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
