Ingredients

Method

  1. Place the venison in a bowl with the wine and brandy and allow to marinade for 12 hours, stirring occasionally.
  2. Drain the meat, reserving the wine and brandy.
  3. Put some oil in a saucepan and bring it up to a high heat.
  4. Add the onion and the garlic and allow them to fry until golden.
  5. Add a little more oil, and the venison and sear.
  6. Reduce the heat.
  7. Add the paprika, wine and brandy and cover.
  8. Allow to simmer, covered, until tender and you are left with a little bit of sauce.
  9. Should the sauce begin to dry up, add a little water or stock.

Serving suggestions

Serve with panache de verduras (mixed vegetables).

Variations

When venison is out of season, try making this with beef or lamb. However, beef does not feature highly in traditional Spanish cuisine.
