Venison is one of the best meals that you can have. This is especially so if you know what to pair it with in order to achieve maximum satisfaction with your meal. Here are some ideas for food pairings that are fantastic with venison.
Naturally, venison is a main course. Thus it is paired with foods that add to the main course such as sauce or vegetables. One of the pairings you can try is some kale or broccoli. This will also serve fantastically with some mashed potatoes. You should make some sauce preferably one with color so that you feel that your meal is colourful. This combination is one that you will find finger licking.
Next, you can try venison with some pasta. This could go really well if you include soup so that the meal does not feel too dry. Like the pairing with broccoli, you can also try sauce instead of soup if you prefer something thicker. However, if you are serving a large group of people, it is best to serve soup instead of sauce.
Another pairing you should try is with cerelac and soup. You can have this with mashed potatoes or rice of you prefer. The mashed potatoes would be fantastic if you are thinking of having a thanksgiving dinner for a group of people. The meal would be perfectly downed with a glass of red wine.
If you are having a small meal for two, you can pair venison with some spinach and make gravy. This will go well with a side of mushrooms. You can add some garlic and raisins to the mushrooms to make the whole combination much sweeter. Another option would be with olives instead of raisins. If you do not want spinach you can try kales.
If you are looking for a lighter meal, you should try venison and blackberry sauce. Since venison is red meat, it will undoubtedly go perfectly with the sauce. You can add garlic to the blackberry sauce for a better taste.
Additionally, you can also try venison with mushroom, rosemary and garlic soup. This is perfect if you are looking for a light meal. The soup should make the venison taste much better due to the garlic. You can add red wine to the combination too.
For a Saturday lunch or dinner, you can have grilled venison wrapped in bacon. The bacon will be cut in thin layers and wrapped around the venison. The mix should make for the ultimate meal. You can garnish this with some spinach. To make the venison taste much better you can spread some cumin pepper or mild red chilli. This is best served with white wine.
A winning pairing would be of venison and soft cabbage served with diced carrots. The venison can be served with riesling on the side for a better taste. All in all this would be one fine combination. Some white wine would be perfect with this.
If you are a fan of lasagna, then you can pair your venison with this. To prevent the meal from feeling too dry, try adding some soup garnished with peas. The combination is to die for. You can also try adding a side of honeyed cabbage to complete the taste.
If you love spinach and kale, there is no reason you cannot mash it up. Make a side of kale mixed with spinach, then serve it with the venison. You should add some red wine to make the meal as sweet as ever.
One more excellent idea is to pair venison with rice garnished with tomatoes. The tomatoes are cut in to small pieces then mixed in to the already cooked rice. The venison on the other hand is served with raisins to make the combination tasty. To top it all up, make some sauce with rosemary and sage then add tumeric powder and some cumin seeds. The result is splendid.
Lastly, you can try venison with potato puree and some soup. Garnish the venison with some greens. To make the soup tasty add carrots. This will male for a finger licking meal.
