In this recipe, Mark Cockcroft takes a classic dish and switches it up with venison for an all-around Italian flavor experience. Herbed seasoned striploin, prepared with creamy garlic stewed white beans brings comfort in a bowl. 



  • 2 lbs Venison Strip Loin or Leg medallions
  • 1 cup Venison Bone Broth
  • 2 (14.5oz) cans of white beans (Cannelini or Navy work well)
  • 4 large cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 1 celery stick, diced
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1 large sprig rosemary, leaves minced (about 1 Tbsp)
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh sage
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tsp ground fennel seeds
  • ½ tsp crushed red chile flakes (optional)
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt, divided plus more as needed
  • 4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • Additional Toppings: Flakey sea salt, chopped fresh parsley, and lemon wedges for serving
Step 1:

In a large bowl mix together the rosemary, thyme, ground fennel, chile flakes, a quarter of the minced garlic, ½ tsp salt, black pepper, and 2 Tbsp olive oil. Add the venison and toss to coat thoroughly; set aside to marinate.

Step 2:
Place a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add remaining 2 Tbsp olive oil, onion, celery, and carrot. Season with ½ tsp salt and cook, stirring often, until onion is translucent, but not browned, about 5 minutes.
Step 3:

Add remaining 3 Tbsp garlic and chopped sage, stir to combine, and sauté for 1 minute. Then add beans, broth, and bay leaf.

Step 4:

Bring to a gentle simmer, then lower heat, cover and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add a splash of more broth or water if the beans look like they are getting a little dry.

Step 5: When the beans have about 10 minutes left place a medium sauté pan over medium heat. Add the venison steaks (they should have enough oil coating them to cook but you can add a splash to the pan if it looks a little dry). Turning every minute or so until richly browned and done do your liking. For medium-rare, about 4 to 5 minutes total. Let rest on a cutting board for 5 minutes.
Step 6:

Check beans for seasoning, adjust to taste, and remove bay leaf. Spoon beans onto 4 plates or shallow bowls and sprinkle with the parsley.

Step 7:

Cut the venison steaks into thick slices and divide them among each serving on top of the beans. Sprinkle meat with a little flakey sea salt if desired.

Step 8:

 Squeeze a lemon wedge over the meat and beans and drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil.
