Ingredients

For the fries
  • 1kg Maris Piper potatoes, skin on, cut into 1cm wide chips
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp truffle oil
  • 30g Parmesan, grated
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme leaves
For the venison
  • 20g dried porcini mushrooms
  • 4 venison steaks, about 120g each
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 thyme sprigs, leaves picked
  • a splash of balsamic, about ½ tbsp
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely sliced
  • 250g chestnut mushrooms, sliced
  • 75ml Madeira
  • 150ml single cream
  • 2 tsp English mustard

Step by step

Get ahead
Blanch the potatoes a couple of hours in advance; keep at room temperature.
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and blanch the chips for 3 minutes. Drain and leave to steam dry. Put the olive oil in a large roasting tray and put in the oven to heat for 5 minutes. When the oil is hot, toss the chips in the oil making sure they are fully coated and season well with sea salt. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes, or until golden and crisp. When ready, remove from the oven and toss with the truffle oil, Parmesan and thyme.
  2. Meanwhile, cover the porcini mushrooms with boiling water in a small bowl and set aside for 10 minutes to soften, then drain and chop roughly. Put the venison steaks on a plate and rub with the oil, half of the thyme leaves, the balsamic and plenty of seasoning.
  3. Melt the butter in a large frying pan until foaming, then pan-fry the steaks for 5-6 minutes for medium, turning halfway through. Transfer to a plate, cover with foil and leave to rest. Add the garlic, drained porcini mushrooms and the chestnut mushrooms to the pan and continue to cook for a further 3-4 minutes. Add the Madeira and light with a long match, letting the alcohol flame until it subsides.
  4. Add the cream, remaining thyme leaves and the mustard to the pan and simmer for a minute to heat through. Return the steaks to the pan and spoon the sauce over them to warm through. 
    Tip
    Use Dijon mustard, not English, if required for gluten-free.
  5. Serve the steaks with the sauce and the truffle fries on the side.
