braised venison ribs wine tomato saffron recipe

Braised venison short ribs is not kinda daily meal for me, then once i had bunch of venison ribs and also the tenderloin, it simply made me happy. From the internet search i read about the cheaper price for venison and any game meat compare to the regular cattle beef abroad, but that’s not gonna happen in my place. Basically, the mith said that venison meat is a powerfull aphrodisiac rocket it’s price tag in Asia. Well, that’s a kinda funny things across Asian decent people. This kind of game protein is usually served with liquor callled arak. The alcohol content is a potent blood vessel dilatator that made the corpora cavernosa (erectile tissue) that mostly consist of blood capillary can dilatated and  filled with the blood even better. This actually the same fact about dringking snake’s blood and bile, the secret is the liquor that mixed within it. I guess i’m keeping that secrets for me for next following years after i get married, i’m using it now for a gourmet adventure.

Braising venison ribs is a very simple and easy following steps.  There are three basic steps or braising; marinating, pan searing and simmering. Since i’m using a junvenile rainforest deer, the simmering steps period is preety quick, 30 minutes it’s all needed to tenderize the ribs. Well, actually i  not only ‘forced’ my sister to purchased the venison short ribs, but also the tenderloin. I’m making a homemade dry cured venison or Italian Bresaola di Cervo, stay tune on Dentist Chef for that recipe.

braised venison  red wine tomato and saffron

Braised venison with red wine or white wine is a common gamey meat preparation in western cuisine. I’m using two kinds of wine here, my last half cup of red wine and white wine. Instead of wine, you can also using some asian liquor like rice wine or shaoxing wine. I also added some kashmiri or Indian saffron within the simmering broth to enhance the flavour and the looks. The vivid yellow color is a result of a pinch of it’s strands. Since my sister like a tangy and slightly sweet flavour i brought some of my homemade sun dried tomato for pleased her. Slightly different from my previously Braised Beef Oxtail with Red Wine, Tomatoes and Carrot, this braised venison ribs is not taste that sweet. For the garnish, i add some torch ginger bloosom on it.
