Venison Casserole with Beer
This succulent, slow-cooked dish is very easy to get in the pan and bakes down to beautiful, unguent tenderness. Enjoy it with a heap of buttery celeriac mash, cabbage and redcurrant jelly.
This is a gamey version of a Shepherd’s pie, with parsnip added to the mash topping to give it a savoury and sweet flavour.
