Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 25 minutes

Horseradish root & potato rosti:
1. Cut the potatoes in half and boil for 5 minutes.
2. Remove from the pan and leave to drain and cool, before grating
3. Grate some horseradish root into the mixture to taste and season with salt and pepper.
5. Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan, form the grated mix into patties and fry until golden.
To cook the venison:
1. Season the meat with salt. Crush black peppercorns and dried mugwort together and roll the venison in it to create a light coating.
2. Heat a large frying pan until just smoking and add the steaks.
3. Turn each piece as it colours, until the meat is well-coloured
4. Rest the meat for at least as long as it cooked for in a warm place and then slice across the grain.
1. Press and sieve the blackberries
2. Add the Gallo Family Vineyards Autumn Red to the pan used to cook the venison, stir and reduce for a few minutes
3. Add the sloe gin, blackberries, blackberry jam and boil until the sauce coats the back of a spoon, add seasoning and sharpen with a squeeze of lemon juice
