This Venison ragu is a great way to swap out the usual beef mince for something a bit different. I love the gamey flavours of venison and it is also a leaner and healthier meat.
The gamey meat is complimented by warming mixed spice, red wine and beef stock and fresh herbs. It is cooked slowly to really soak up the flavours and produce a rich ragu and the shavings of dark chocolate really help to balance the gamey flavour of the venison.
This dish is great for those that want a rich, indulgent meal that tastes a bit naughty but is actually healthy, lean and isn't heavy on calories! It's great served with pasta, such as spaghetti, tagliatelle or parpadelle and a side salad.
