Don’t let the fancy French name scare you off. This one is very simple with big taste! You will commonly find this one in restaurants served with beef. We pair this recipe with venison most of the time but Chef Wutsch actually did a cooking demo right out in our processing area with wild pig.
If you’re looking for something with Big Flavor and easy to fix, just add to some egg noodles or soft polenta and you are good to go.
