2 pears (150 g each)
2 tbsp clarified butter
1 tbsp brown cane sugar
50 ml pear-cider or pear-juice
a few pinches of ground saffron, ground coriander, black pepper
8 venison- medallions (60 g each)
½ tsp ground pimento
100 g soft butter
2 tbsp rosehip jam
1 tbsp chopped leaf parsley
2 full tbsps. dried cranberries
juice and zest of 1 organic lemon
1 small-sized leek
2 tbsp olive oil
200 g instant couscous
250 ml hot vegetable stock
35 g pistachios
1 tbsp butter
salt, rosehip jam for the decoration
Wash and peel the pears, then halve them and remove the core with a melon baller. Melt clarified butter (1 tbsp.) in a pan and fry the pears until they are golden-brown at setting No.5 for 6-8 minutes.
Sprinkle with sugar and caramelize lightly. Add cider or juice, saffron, coriander, pepper and a pinch of salt. Take it of the hob. Drizzle the pears with the sauce (repeatedly). Put a lid on the pot and allow the pears to rest.
Season the venison-medallions with ground pimento, ground coriander and pepper.
For the rosehip-butter:
Use a fork to mix soft butter with jam and leaf parsley in a soup plate. Season with salt and black pepper and keep chilled.
Soak cranberries in lemon juice. Wash the leek and cut it in fine rings. Keep one tablespoon for the decoration. Place leek and olive oil in a small cooking bowl and cook for five minutes at reduced steam at 160°C CircoTherm® on tray level 1. Add cranberries and couscous before you add hot vegetable stock. Allow another ten minutes of cooking.
Chop pistachios coarsely and add to the couscous. Add butter. Season with lemon zest, salt and pepper. Turn oven off, but leave the pears and the couscous in the oven to keep them warm. Melt the remaining clarified butter in a pan and fry the medallions for about two minutes on both sides at setting No. 7. Turn oven off, season with salt and allow resting for five minutes.
Serve the venison-medallions with rosehip-butter, pears and couscous on pre-heated plates. Sprinkle with leek rings and garnish with rosehip-jam.
