    Nice simple reciepe except for the panchetta, might try bacon. Will give it a go when I am allowed to cook.

    i’m cooking this with beef fillet tails – we have wolfed down all our venison already !
    i have been cooking (sometimes professionally) for 40 years. i found the recipe mildly confusing because you want to brown that meat properly, and the recipe makes that tough to do, in fact the order of ingredients & method could do with a tweak. it’s in the oven for the 2 hours now, so i may return to give a proper verdict.
    i have to say that Wild and Game are my favourite online meat providers.

    Myself, i will do herby dumplings to add to this, also, i will put a bouquet garni and a couple of bay leaves to this…… This stew is also nice with a potato and root veg mash, the supermarkets do it already made…. also a nice twist is Turnip, ( NOT SWEDE ) , Turnip is white in colour, and adds a lovely flavour to this….. for a veg, Sprouts with onion and lardons are Bootiful with this
