Venison chops with wild mushroom consommé

In a very large saucepan combine all consommé ingredients (mushroom stems only, reserve mushrooms and julienne), cold. Bring to a slow boil and simmer for 2 hours or until liquid is reduced to about 3 cups. Strain. Stir in remaining ingredients and heat 1/2 hour.

Preheat oven to 200 ̊C. Sear the roast racks for 20 minutes until medium rare. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, heat oil, sauté julienned mushrooms and season to taste. Remove meat from oven and let rest for 10 minutes before cutting into chops.

Sauce plate with 2-3 tbsp of consommé and add 2 chops per plate and mushrooms. Garnish with chopped parsley or watercress.
