Teriyaki venison with onion and sour cherries


The sweetness of the onion combines well with the salty teriyaki marinade and flavorsome sour cherries in this delicious dinner party dish. If dried cherries are unavailable, substitute dried cranberries.

Preparation time: 25 minutes, plus marinating time
Cooking time: 12-15 minutes
Serves 4

  • 4 venison steaks, about 175 g (6 or) each

  • Salt and black pepper

  • Generous pinch of dried crushed chilies

  • 2 Tbsp groundnut oil

  • 175 ml (6 fl oz) plus 3 Tbsp bottled teriyaki marinade

  1. Season the steaks lightly, and place them in a strong, reseal able plastic bag. Add the oil and 3 tablespoons of the teriyaki marinade, then expel the air from the bag and seal it firmly. Rub the marinade thoroughly into the meat, then leave in the ridge for at least 2 hours.

  2. Soak the cherries in the stock while the venison is marinating. Pat the met dry on kitchen paper. Heat a ridged grill pan, add the steaks and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, depending on thickness and how rare you like your meat.
