    Da Huz's Note:

    Based off a French recipe for roast venison leg (Gigot de Chevreuil Roti). Easy to make and fairly quick (other than the marinating time) depending on the size of your venison loin. Also works for elk or other game.

    5. 5
      When meat is done, remove and let rest 10 minutes. Meanwhile, add cornstarch mixture and vinegar to sauce and cook to thicken.
