    Venison goulash

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 1 hour 40 minutes

    Serves: 4

    Ingredients

    2 tbsp olive oil
    1 large onion, diced
    2 x 300g packs Waitrose
    Diced British Venison
    3 garlic cloves, sliced
    2 tbsp sweet smoked paprika
    1 tbsp tomato purée
    2 tbsp red wine vinegar
    500ml fresh Cooks’ Ingredients Beef Stock
    400g can chopped tomatoes
    1 tsp light brown soft sugar
    1 red pepper, deseeded and cut into chunks
    300g cooked tagliatelle
    4 tbsp soured cream
    1⁄4 x 25g pack flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped

    Method

    1 Preheat the oven to 160 ̊C, gas mark 3. Heat the oil in a large ovenproof casserole or sauté pan over a medium-high heat. Fry the onion for 2 minutes. Pat the venison dry using kitchen paper and season, then add to the pan and fry for 2-3 minutes until turning golden. Add the garlic, then stir in the paprika and tomato purée and fry for 2 more minutes.

    2 Add the vinegar, stock, tomatoes, sugar and a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil then lower to a simmer. Cover with a lid and put in the oven for 45 minutes. Stir in the red pepper and cook, uncovered, for a final 45 minutes, until the venison and vegetables are tender and the sauce has thickened.

    3 Allow to stand for 5 minutes before serving with tagliatelle, a little soured cream and a scattering of parsley.

    Cook’s tip

    This goulash is also lovely served with mashed potatoes instead of tagliatelle.

    And to drink...

    A fruity red, such as Albert Road Pinot Noir, South Africa, is the perfect partner for this hearty dish. It has wonderful notes of wild strawberry and raspberry, and a touch of spice.
