10 tips on game meat

1. Meat processing

Before roasting, the game should be freed from tendons and skin with a sharp, pointed knife.

2. Purchasing

Make sure that the game meat is firm and has a dark red colour. This shows the freshness and quality of the meat.

3. The mixture is the key

The game meat is very tender and juicy - a lean meat. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to some special features when preparing it. When processing sausages, you should always add some pork meat to game meat, otherwise the game sausage will be too tough.

4. Game is healthy

Game is a real winner among the types of meat. It is low in fat and rich in protein, B vitamins and trace elements such as iron and zinc. Since game lives in the wild, it has a lot of muscle meat and contains no harmful foreign substances. On the contrary: the many unsaturated fatty acids found in game meat are preventive against heart attacks and vascular diseases!

5. Spices & Herbs

Spices and fresh herbs give the game more flavour. The venison's own flavour is particularly emphasised by adding juniper, bay leaf, thyme, rosemary, mint or cranberries. Refined hobby cooks also add dark cooking chocolate for an extra fine touch.

6. The smell

If the taste of game is too strong, stain it with red wine, herbs or juniper.

7. Sauté & cook

Always fry the meat before cooking. Afterwards, the game meat should be cooked through slowly. Gentle cooking of game meat is important, as this is how the meat remains the most tender. It would be ideal if the meat inside reaches a temperature of 80 degrees for at least a few minutes. A cooking test can be carried out with the finger: If you can press it deep into the meat, it is still very raw. If it does not yield any more, it is cooked through.

8. Side dishes

Red cabbage, polenta, dumplings, potato noodles and of course mushrooms are suitable as side dishes with game.

9. The matching wine

A good game dish is undoubtedly accompanied by a suitable drink. Full-flavoured red wines, either sweet or dry according to taste, crown the dish.

10. The game season 

The game season runs from May to mid-October.
