Here’s a delicious recipe you can make using Haumako Hills Venison steaks, that you then cover with a delectable herb crust and serve over seasonal veges.



1 pack Silver Fern Farms Haumako Hills Venison Steaks

2 Tbsp oil

1 Tbsp mustard

Salt and pepper to season


Herb Crust

1 Tbsp each of fresh herbs; parsley, tarragon, marjoram, thyme

1 clove garlic, crushed

½ cup breadcrumbs

1 egg



Place the fresh herbs, garlic and breadcrumbs in a food processor. Pulse to combine. Add egg and process further. A little water can be added if it is too dry.

Sear your venison in a hot pan until browned on all sides. Dab with a paper towel to remove any oil residue.

Preheat an oven to 220°C. Spread a little mustard over each steak and pack the herb crust on top. Cook the steaks in the oven for 10 minutes (medium-rare)

Remove from the oven, cover with tinfoil and rest your venison for 5 minutes. Slice across the grain and serve with a selection of sautéed seasonal vegetable.
