    Serves 1.

    120 g venison steaks, diced
    2 juniper berries, crushed with the back of a knife
    1 sprig of rosemary
    1 sprig of thyme
    1 glasses red wine
    50 g pork fat, minced
    salt, and freshly ground black pepper
    1 egg, beaten
    2 tbsp olive oil
    30g slice of brie

    For the salad:
    handful of mixed leaves
    handful of red grapes, halved
    yellow peppers, cut into strips
    6 cherry tomatoes, on the vine
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 tsp balsamic vinegar

    1. Marinate the venison with the juniper berries and the herbs in the red wine for a couple of hours. Discard the berries and drain.

    2. Remove the herbs and finely chop them.

    3. Mince the venison.

    4. Put the herbs into a bowl with the venison and the pork fat.

    5. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and stir in the beaten egg.

    6. Form the mixture into a burger. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and fry the burger for 3 minutes on each side, until golden brown. The burgers are best served pink.

    7. Put a slice of Brie on the top of the burger and grill until the cheese has melted.

    8. Combine the salad ingredients together in a bowl and dress with the olive oil and vinegar.

    9. Serve the burger on the plate with the salad.
