PASTURE RAISED, GRASS-FED VENISON
Venison Leg Medallions
4oz Medallions in Five 2lb Packs (Approx. 10lbs total)
Venison leg medallions are small pieces of leg meat that are quick cooking, and delicious. Each 4oz piece is just the right size for a light meal or slicing for a hearty salad. Of course, you can also serve more than one for a more robust portion.
Dishes featuring venison medallions can be as complicated or simple as you’d like. They can be cooked simply seasoned with salt & pepper, marinated with herbs & spices for more flavor, or paired with sauces.
Silver Fern Farms Venison is 100% grass-fed & finished, raised free range on massive pastures in New Zealand. No hormone or antibiotic growth promotants are ever used, and GMOs are illegal in New Zealand.
It has a luxuriously tender texture (apart from the braising cuts, which must be slow cooked) and a sweet, robust flavor.
This farm raised venison is considered amongst the finest in the world. It is much more tender than wild venison without its intensely gamey flavor. The "Cervena" appellation includes controls to ensure only the finest quality is sold.
Healthy & Exceptionally Lean
Venison (deer meat) has extremely low levels of fat - significantly less than skinless chicken. It is also lower in cholesterol than beef or lamb, while being high in iron and zinc. What fat it has is good fat, with high levels of healthy omega 3 fatty acids.
Store venison medallions in your freezer until you’re ready to use them, then thaw.
RECIPES & TIPS
Venison medallions can be grilled, pan seared, sliced for stir-fried dishes, butterflied & stuffed, etc. Venison is leaner and redder than beef, and thus tends to cook more quickly and the interior of the meat tends to look more red when cooked.
Because it is so lean, most chefs prefer to cook venison to medium rare or medium.* For medallions, reaching this level of doneness can take only a minute or two on each side.
You can simply brush your medallions with oil and season them with salt & pepper, or marinate them with herbs, garlic, and/or spices to impart additional flavor.
