My newly introduced shopping lists are very popular. Recently, a blog reader wrote to me and complimented me on the shopping lists. “Your shopping lists are so practical, standing in the supermarket I find the ingredients faster! Isn’t that… wonderful?

Here is the shopping list for the roast venison:

  • venison roast meat, for example shoulder
  • a bottle of dry red wine, for example Rioja
  • cranberries optional extra wild berry jam
  • onions
  • 1 bunch soup vegetables
  • 1 potato
  • 1 orange
  • some gingerbread
  • juniper berries, bay leaf, thyme
  • butter
  • vegetable stock cubes and chicken stock cubes or 2 glasses veal stock
  • for the side dish bread dumpling souffle: dumpling bread, eggs, milk, parsley

The exact quantities can be found in the recipe for roast venison, further down in the article.

Since I show you in the video the fast preparation of the roast venison, we still make an excursion to the topic of pickle venison meat or insert venison meat.
