    La tourte de venaison et risotto chinois pour lequel Larry le jeune cerf a tout donne

    Firstly, my french isn't nearly as good as the title suggests it might be. I understand the odd word and phrase here and there.

    Just wanted to make it sound elegant and sophisticated.......which it isn't, really.

    So I cheated and used an online translate thingy:

    The pie of venison and chinese risotto for which Larry the young deer gave his all.

    Yes, this is the last of Larry the spiker which I shot back in february.

    I have experimented with the venison, something I've never had a chance to do before.

    I've had it grilled (George Foreman, you rock) and crockpotted .

    This is a the logical extension of the crockpot.

    Firstly the people to thank/blame:

    @gadgetman for advice in an old thread about slow cooking meat. Something like "make sure you brown the meat first"
    @mrs dundee for the basic idea of how to go about making the pie and how long to cook it for etc
    @Micky Duck for a comment about not having to cook risotto, which gave me an idea...

    The Recipe:

    *The last of Larry S, cubed, browned in a frypan, and then slung into the crockpot
    *Sachet of Brown Onion gravy
    *Frozen Mixed veges
    *2 dessertspoons of cornflour
    * Enough water to not quite cover everything

    Crockpot it for 9 hours. Don't be a plonker and lift the lid like I did.

    *Large pack of Chinese Rice risotto
    *4 eggs

    Cook the risotto, hard boil the eggs slice into 4 or 5 and mix with risotto.
    Leave it to dry and cool, so it doesn't transfer too much moisture to the inside of the pie.

    Lay a sheet of puff pastry (you'll need 4-6 sheets depending on how much filling you cook) in a pie dish.

    When venison is cooked, spoon in enough to half fill the pie dish.

    Add the rice risotto on top till almost level with the top of the pie dish.

    Lay another sheet of puff pastry on top.

    Brush top with milk

    Put in oven for 30 min @ 180c till golden brown.

    To conclude, I believe that we have a moral obligation to experiment with pie filling possibilities for the advancement of civilization.

    That's my excuse for putting Rice risotto in a pie. That and the fact that Micky Duck gave the idea.

    It looks rather good however I am deeply suspicious of anything that contains diced carrots and peas based on hazy recollections from my youth.

    Damn, that looks good @maxheadroom, but I'm too lazy to brown the meat. I just chuck it in the pot with whatever I can find for flavour/marinade and let it sit an hour or two. Then it gets slow cooked for an hour or 16.

    Its important to eat diced carrots and peas - every time you vomit-those ingredients are included in the mix , even if you havent eaten them for a year. This is because your appendix is a storage vessel for diced carrot and peas - your gall bladder stores the corn.
    Cats have nine lives-which makes them ideal for experimentation...

    Very true. I've always been awed by the human body's ability to produce them for a pavement pizza-no matter what.

    Not too bad for time overall, unless you're accustomed to a 5 minute microwave meal.

    I did make a mistake though: The rice risotto falls out of the pie very readily.

    Can't wander round carrying it like bacon and egg pie without a plate underneath it.

    Depends on how long the venison cooks for. And the pie.

    This.....So much THIS>

    Next time you are experimenting try a Mallowpuff pie....Use a short crust pastry, (like an apple pie) and instead of apple you put marshmellows, strawberry or raspberry and chocolate (chocolate sauce topping or actual chocolate or a mix of both) and some crunched up biscuits. Cook like a normal pie until Pastry is cooked and serve with Ice cream....(The ice cream helps knock back the sweetness just right)

    Just bear in mind this pie also requires some significant excercise afterwards or you will start to resemble a pie shape yourself.....

    next is the deep fried chocolate wontons with strawberry sauce.....

    That sounds amazing, it would be nice straight after a feed of venison. Speaking of which I have some cooking in the slow cooker as we speak, I can't wait until dinner time

    I had decided not to name any more of them. Larry was the 1st one I shot, so he was kinda special.

    Then again if it's obviously begging for a name, like skinny bro, or fat bastard, I might change my mind.
