Deer loin stewed in ratatouille, the recipe to discover new wild meats

When I was little, my mother occasionally prepared some game stew, usually a very powerful stew, to cover the bush flavor of deer or wild boar meat that sometimes a friend of the hunter gave us. Today, game meat is much kinder and we can find tender pieces like the one we have used today: deer stew cooked in ratatouille, the recipe for discovering new wild meats.

Now we find, with relative ease, wild boar, deer or venison meat or meat of other species, with very tender and tasty cuts, which we can even take grilled as in the deer burger recipe, which we taught you long ago. With these meats, we can cook using techniques that leave the meat very tender and flavored, without losing its beautiful pink color, as you can see in the images.


For 4 people

  • Onion 2
  • Tomato 4

How to make stewed deer loin in ratatouille

Difficulty: easy
  • Total time 1 hour
  • Elaboration 20 m
  • Cooking 40 m

We start by gilding the deer loin well on all its faces. We do it in a wide and low saucepan, with a pinch of olive oil. When the meat is well browned, we remove it and reserve it. While it is done, we are chopping the onion, tomato and peppers into small pieces to prepare the ratatouille as we did in this recipe.

We take advantage of the same saucepan and the juices left by the meat and start with the onion. When it has sweated and begins to show, add the peppers and the tomatoes, leaving the whole to cook until it becomes a classic ratatouille.

We put the meat back in the saucepan, placing it on top of the ratatouille. Add 200 ml of homemade meat or chicken stock and bring to a boil. Cover the saucepan and cook for 15 minutes and turn the piece, leaving to cook for another 15 minutes.

We remove the meat from the saucepan and let it rest wrapped in aluminum foil. While we grind the sauce and prepare the garnish. Fillet the tenderloin and serve it accompanied by the sauce, the salad and two or three piquillo peppers, seasoning with Maldon-type salt flakes.
