  • 550 g venison pulp,

The preparation of venison ragout

To begin with, cut the venison pulp. Depending on your tastes you can decide to cut it into small cubes or chop it using a mixer. Subsequently, to prepare the venison sauce pasta, make chopped onion, celery and carrots and brown it in a pan with a little oil for about a couple of minutes. At this point add the chopped venison and let it brown. As soon as the meat is evenly browned, add a pinch of salt and tomato pulp. Sprinkle with a little red wine and water, making sure that the meat is well covered. Then add the spices: juniper, carnation, cinnamon, bay leaf and pepper. In case you have a gauze bag, you could think of enclosing all the spices inside so that you can remove them more easily when cooked. Finally cover your venison sauce with a lid and let it cook over low heat for about 3 hours. From time to time check that the sauce does not dry out excessively. If this happens, you can add some more water.

Game sauce, in fact, goes particularly well with thick and rough types of pasta.
