    Venison shoulder roast

    Too many hunters leave the shoulders behind , this recipe is just yummy , you can swap out the prunes for dries apricots . Cooking oil can be swapped for dripping , or even better bacon fat , A packet of commercial stuffing is also a go


    1 boned out shoulder ,
    salt pepper
    3 tbsp beef dripping

    1 tbsp chopped onion
    50g butter
    250 gram pitted chopped prunes
    1 tbsp chopped parsley
    Juice and grated rind of 1 orange
    2 cups bread crumbs
    salt pepper
    1˝tsp fresh ground all spice

    saute onion in butter , add other ingredients
    put stuffing in boned out leg , roll tie with string
    rub meat with butter , salt and pepper.
    place in roasting pan with beef dripping , cover roast 3-3˝ hours depending on size at 160 C or 320 F
    Baste frequently
    remove cover in last ˝hour to brown meat ,
    make gravy from pan juices plus extra orange juice
    Get as close as you can then six feet closer

    @Druid Only just read this recipe now. I like your stuffing recipe, at this time of year I like a bit of Horse Radish but I don't know how that would work with the prune plum and Orange flavours.
    Anyway, regarding the cooking I used to roast just as you suggest but now do it a completely different way which I find much better.
    Brown the roast properly in the roasting pan if it has a heavy base or in a solid frypan first. Then put the roast onto a bed of thin Kumara slices in the roasting dish. Put the covered ( lid on ) dish into a cold oven and seethe thermostat to 270 - 280 C. Once the oven reaches that temp and the light goes out time 30 mins then turn the oven completely off. Do this early enough so that the roast will have 5 to 6 hours in the oven. Check all is well early enough incase it needs more heat but you should have a roast that is properly cooked through, moist, pink in the middle, and nicely browned. Mash and whiz the Kumara slices to make a gravy.

    Recipe sounds good Druid. Will have to try it. Personally I take as much meat as I can off a deer as I don't shoot as many as I would like.
