Venison is a really versatile, lean and quick-cooking meat which you can take in lots of directions, flavour-wise. In this recipe, I’ve added some aromatic Chinese flavours and lots of veges to venison mince, to make a quick and delicious dinner.

Cervena Venison and Shitake Dim Sum in Aromatic Broth with Steamed Vegetables.

Last year in the mid-semester break I went on a trip to South East Asia, travelling across Malaysia and to Singapore with a local family. 

With this in mind I wanted to use ingredients that were familiar to Kiwis, which would be the New Zealand farmed Venison. My dish is a fusion of the exotic flavours used in South East Asian cookery, and a familiar, yet sought-after ingredient used in New Zealand cuisine. Together creating an affordable meal is still be packed full of flavour, as if you where eating this dish at a street stall in South East Asia.
