Some people may think that I’m completely mad for using game meat for such an everyday dish like a stir fry, but those that know me know that I like to mix things around, besides in cooking there is very little that’s set in stone, just like life really… so preparing a venison stir fry recipe for me is not as mad as it may look…
Every time I see cooked venison on cooking shows is always done the same exact way or in similar variants, braised then in a pan and served with carrots, potatoes and some sort of greens with a jus or gravy around it…and quite frankly to me that is sooooo boring.
I like flavours that perk up my taste buds and flavours that even nobody will think go together, and this is I guess my experimental cook side… but why do we always have to do things the same way?? In cooking there is no right or wrong as long as you can make the flavours work together…
So in this recipe I’m taking venison to the Caribbean and South America with the inclusion of coriander and sweet peppers, so you get the strong game flavour with the sweetness of the peppers and the zestyness of the coriander.
Of course if you don’t like game meat than this is not the recipe for you because Venison does taste quite gamy but I love it !

I served this recipe with white rice, but it also goes well with mash potatoes, boiled quinoa or with a simple green salad made with mixed leaves.
