“Just trust me on this one... Ever the imaginative chef I needed something to do with the dark chocolate truffles left in the Lindor variety box that I got for Christmas (the dark ones pale in comparison to the regular, hazelnut and white ones in my opinion). I'm not entirely sure what compelled me to put a couple of them on the venison steaks I was cooking for dinner that night, but boy am I glad I did! The chocolate mixes beautiful with the meat juices and, having seen how well it works, I am going to try it on beef fillet steaks next time because I imagine it would be rather wondrous that way too!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place venison on baking tray.
  2. Cut Lindor truffles in half and place one half at either end of each steak.
  3. Bake as directed on the venison packet, or at 190c for approximately 20 minutes.
  4. When the venison is cooked, the chocolate will have melted over the steak and mixed in with all the meat juices to make an absolutely delicious jus. Mmm!
