Servings: 4

Preparation duration: 15 minutes

Cooking duration: 25 minutes

 

Ingredients:

3 cups apple cider

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 cinnamon stick

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 tablespoon olive oil

Zest from 1/2 orange, removed in strips with a vegetable peeler

2 teaspoons unsalted butter

4 6-ounce boneless venison loin steaks

Equipment:

sauce pan

frying pan

kitchen thermometer

knife

cutting board

Cooking instruction summary:

1. In a medium saucepan, combine the apple cider, orange zest, and cinnamon stick and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer, uncovered, until the mixture is slightly syrupy and has reduced to about 1/3 cup, 25 minutes or so. Remove from the heat, discard the cinnamon and zest, and set aside.2. Season the venison steaks on both sides with salt and pepper. In a medium skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot but not smoking, add the venison steaks and cook, without turning, until nicely browned, about 2 minutes. Turn and repeat on the other side.3. Leave the venison in the skillet and carefully add the butter and half of the cider reduction to the skillet. Continue to cook the venison, spooning the pan juices over the steaks every minute or so and turning the steaks once, for about 5 minutes more, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of a steak registers 130°F (57 °C). Alternatively, if you pierce one steak (yours!) with the tip of a paring knife, it should appear medium-rare, meaning it will be vibrant red, but not raw, at the center.4. Transfer the venison steaks to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, reduce the pan juices slightly until syrupy and of proper drizzling consistency. If you care to show off the bright red centers of the steaks, slice each steak the long way. Place the steaks on plates and drizzle with the reduced pan juices and the remaining cider reduction.

Food Joke

There is a new virus going around, called "work." If you receive any sort of "work" at all, whether via email, Internet or simply handed to you by a colleague ... DO NOT OPEN IT. This has been circulating around our building for months and those who have been tempted to open "work" or even look at "work" have found that their social life is deleted and their brain ceases to function properly. If you do encounter "work" via email or are faced with any "work" at all, then to purge the virus, send an email to your boss with the words "I've had enough... I'm off to the pub." The "work" should automatically be forgotten by your brain. If you receive "work" in paper-document form, simply lift the document and drag the "work" to your garbage can. Put on your hat and coat and skip to the nearest bar with two friends and order three pints of beer . A.
