Hirschsteaks mit Burgundersauce - Venison Cutlets with Burgundy Sauce

This dish tastes autumn: succulent venison steaks cooked to perfection served with Burgundy sauce.

Venison is delicious, aromatic and lean. It should be served with a side dish of chestnut puree, dumplings, Schupfnudeln and Spätzle. You can also opt for red cabbage with apples or cabbage, blueberries or cranberries. A good mushroom risotto also goes very well with this type of meat.
