Venison Medallions with Red Wine Reduction


  • 4 venison medallions
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1/2 cup beef or vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 sprig of fresh rosemary
  • 1 sprig of fresh thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Season the venison medallions generously with salt and pepper. Allow them to come to room temperature while you prepare the other ingredients.

  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the venison medallions and sear for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they reach your desired level of doneness. Remove the venison from the skillet and set it aside.

  3. In the same skillet, add the minced garlic and shallot. Sauté for about 2 minutes until they become fragrant and slightly translucent.

  4. Pour in the red wine and beef or vegetable broth, stirring to combine. Add the sprigs of rosemary and thyme. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Allow it to cook for about 10-15 minutes or until the liquid is reduced by half, and the sauce thickens.

  5. Stir in the butter until it melts and blends into the sauce. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste.

  6. Return the seared venison medallions to the skillet and simmer for an additional 2-3 minutes to heat them through and coat them with the sauce.

  7. Remove the sprigs of rosemary and thyme.

  8. Serve the venison medallions with the red wine reduction sauce drizzled over the top.
