Game Consommé with deer dumplings
December 24th, 2018 | starter
A clear game soup with deer meat balls is a festive affair. Just right as a starter for Christmas! The broth is easy to prepare and can be cooked well before the festive season. Also, the deer dumplings can be prepared in advance and frozen. So to say, an appetizer that comes from the cold… for a relaxed Christmas for the cook.
There’s nothing better than a home-cooked broth, whether chicken, beef, fish, vegetables or, as today, game. A good broth is a basis to cook ragouts and gravy or soups. It is generally prepared in the same way, no matter on which basis you cook it: Bones, meat and vegetables are roasted in the oven, then poured with liquid, cooked for a very long time and strained. Voilà!
(Preheat the oven to 200° C)
(gives about 32 dumplings)
