2. Allow the mushrooms to rehydrate for 30 minutes, then chop them coarsely. If the soaking water is clean and free from dirt, you may still use it later for the sauce.

3. In a heavy saucepan, heat ¼ cup of the butter and olive oil. Stir until the butter has melted and the two ingredients are well-combined.

4. Season the fatty pork with a bit of salt and pepper. Fry the pork in the butter/olive oil mixture for around 20 minutes, or until the lean parts of the meat have turned brown.

11. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

12. Place the venison roast on a flat, even surface. With a thin, sharp knife, start cutting into the roast without cutting all the way through. The cuts should be around half an inch in thickness, just to open up the roast for more even cooking.

13. Liberally season the venison with salt and pepper. Pour the ragout over the roast.

14. Start rolling the venison roast, making sure that the ragout doesn’t seep out from the inside. If ragout escapes and leaks out, just add more ragout using a spoon.

15. Once the venison is all rolled, secure it using cooking twine.

16. Brush olive oil over the surface of the roast. You may also season it with more salt and pepper if you wish.

Tips and Tricks

Steaks are such delicate things. If you get the cooking time, temperature and flavors right, you can get the best tasting, flavorful steak out there. However, mess up one and you can end up with a chewy, or tough, dry meal. Before you try out any of our truffle oil recipes steak tips are in order. Follow these and you’ll get the best results for less effort and money.

  • Sirloin, ribeye and steak fillets are expensive. If they’re out of your budget, don’t worry! Just replace the steak used in the recipes to either flank skirt or flat iron steak. They cheaper, yet their mixture of fat and lean meat is just the right amount to bring the best flavor and fullness.
  • Always grill or cook your steaks at room temperature if . If you store your steaks in the freezer beforehand, allow them to thaw before cooking. This ensures even cooking.
  • Always season your steaks well with oil or butter, salt and pepper. Don’t just sprinkle the seasoning on top of the steak, make sure to rub the seasonings into the steak for better flavor retention.
  • Always add the steak to an already hot grill. This caramelises the steak quite well and leaves those nice, standard grill marks.
  • Flip the steak frequently when grilling. You can flip every 30 to 60 seconds per side, and just keep repeating this until your steak is cooked to your specifications.
  • For more flavor, you can rub garlic or butter on the steak while you’re cooking it. If the recipe calls for a marinade beforehand, brush the marinade repeatedly on the steak while cooking.
  • Always set aside the steak after grilling, preferably surrounded by its own juices, in order to absorb more flavor. For better results, cover the steak with aluminum foil.
  • Truffle oil is the magic ingredient here. Steak with truffle oil is worlds away from regular steak. Never use truffle oil in lieu of olive oil, as it loses its flavor when cooked. Always use truffle oil as a garnish before serving the steak dinner. A drizzle of truffle oil may seem like a small thing, but it makes a huge difference.
