Recipe tip: Venison is a very lean meat so mixing in a bit of pork mince gives these burgers extra juiciness.



  • red onion 1 small
  • venison mince 300g
  • pork mince 100g
  • Worcestershire sauce 1 tsp
  • parsley a handful of leaves, chopped
  • groundnut oil
  • dolcelatte 4 thick slices
  • mayonnaise 4 tbsp
  • English mustard 1 tsp
  • watercress 2 handfuls
  • brioche-style buns 4, toasted


  • Step 1

    Peel the onion including the first layer, keeping it whole. Grate it on the rough side of a box grater. Squeeze out most of the onion juice and discard then drop the pulp into a bowl.

  • Step 2

    Add the venison, pork, Worcestershire sauce and parsley. Season really well then mix together.

  • Step 3

    Form into 4 burgers, flattening them out so that they’re bigger than the buns as they will shrink when cooking. Oil the burgers on both sides and season again, going heavy on the pepper.

  • Step 4

    Heat a large heavy frying pan to hot. Add the burgers and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, until cooked through. Add the cheese to the top and cover with a lid or baking sheet to create some steam and melt the cheese. Mix the mayo and mustard and spread over the bottom of the toasted buns. Add some watercress and top with a burger and the bun top.
