Ingredients

1.5 kg deer/venison cubes (shoulder)
1/2 cup white flour (all purpose) 65 g
1/3 cup olive oil 85 mL
1 onions, finely chopped 200 g
1 carrots, finely chopped 100 g
1 stalk celery, finely chopped 70 g
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp tomato paste 30 mL
1/4 cup Cognac 65 mL
1 cup red wine 250 mL
1 1/4 cup beef broth 310 mL
3 bay leaf 0.4 g
3 cloves 0.1 g
1 tbsp herbes de Provence 2 g
1/8 tsp peppercorns
salt [optional]

Before you start

A baking or casserole dish with a tight-fitting lid is necessary for this recipe.

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Method

  1. Coat the meat cubes with the flour.
  2. Heat the oil in a heavy-bottom casserole dish over medium-high heat. Add the meat cubes in batches, and cook turning them until dark brown on all sides, 5-7 min. Take the cubes out of the casserole using a slotted spoon, then transfer them to a plate. Add salt and set aside.
  3. Add the onion, carrot and celery to the casserole. Sauté 5 min with stirring until softened. Add the garlic and cook 1 min with stirring. Add the tomato paste and Cognac. Let the liquid boil until it is almost completely evaporated. Pour in the red wine then bring to a boil until the liquid is reduced to about a half of its initial volume.
  4. Put the meat cubes back into the casserole then add the broth (just enough to cover). Add the bay leaves, cloves, herbs and peppercorns.
  5. Lower the heat, cover and simmer 1 h 30 min, or until the meat is tender. Add additional broth if necessary to obtain a thinner sauce.
  6. Take out the bay leaves, adjust the seasoning then serve in the warmed dishes.

Remarks

This stew can be made a few days ahead and reheated over moderate heat.

It just tasted like regular deer stew to me, I couldn't taste the brandy which was such a waste, I liked it but can make a better deer stew without all the fuss.
