Game and turnip broth
I've used some deer shanks here but you could use any slow-cooking cut such as the neck or shoulder, or other game birds.
1 deer shank or other slow-cooking game cut, weighing about 600-800g
1 large onion, peeled, halved and finely chopped
A couple of sprigs of thyme
3ltrs chicken or beef stock
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3-4 medium-sized turnips, peeled and cut into rough 1cm dice or larger if you wish
2tbsp chopped parsley
Put the deer into a pressure cooker with the onion, thyme and stock, season lightly, bring up to pressure and cook for an hour. This should be enough time, depending on the cut – if it's not tender, continue cooking.
Once the meat is tender, remove the meat from the cooking liquid and leave to cool a little in a plate to catch any juices. Simmer the cooking liquor until it's nice and strong; then season to taste if necessary.
Cut the meat into chunks about the same size as the turnips and return to the cooking liquor with the turnips.
Simmer for about 6-8 minutes – until tender – then add the parsley and simmer for another minute; serve.
