    Nurbel's Note:

    An interesting dish, originally from the Tabasco cookbook. Not actually all that spicy in my opinion but it is quite nice the way you bake the biscuits ontop of the ragout. This recipe would probably work well with beef instead of venison. You'll need a big enough frying pan to hold virtually all the ingredients. A 12" pan should be fine.

    1. 1

      Remove to a (2 qt shallow size) casserole dish but leave bacon fat in frying pan.
    3. 3
      Raise heat to medium high and cook the venison chunks in the bacon fat until well browned.
    4. 4
      Remove to the casserole dish but again leave the drippings.
    5. 5
      Now at medium heat, in the same pan, fry the carrots, parsnips and onions for about 5 minutes.
    6. 6
      Add the butter, mushrooms and minced garlic.
    7. 7
      Cook until tendercrisp or about 5 minutes.
    8. 8
      Add cornstarch to the wine so that it can dissolve and then add wine, bacon and the venison and the rest of the ingredients to the vegetables in the frying pan.
    9. 9
      Bring to a boil at high heat and then remove to the caserole.
    10. 10
      Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven.
    11. 11
      Meanwhile we can prepare the Parsley Biscuits.
    12. 12
      Combine flour, baking powder, and baking soda in a mixing bowl.
    13. 13
      Using a pastry blender, cut butter into the mixture until it resembles corse crumbs.
    14. 14
      Add buttermilk and parsley and stir to moisten.
    15. 15
      After the venison has baked for 30 minutes remove the casserole from the oven.
    16. 16
      Increase oven to 450 degrees.
    17. 17
      To make 6 biscuits we drop 1/3 cup sized dough scoops onto mixture in casserole.
    18. 18
      Allow some separation between each dough drop so that you don't end up with one big biscuit.
    19. 19
      Bake uncovered for another 12-15 minutes or until biscuits are golden.

      I am so happy I found your recipe! I had a meal ike this years ago and I still remembered it, so when I made this recipe I was thrilled to have found a recipe so close to this old favorite. Excellent flavor, easy to make, I followed recipe nearly exactly, I added some black pepper and subbed broth instead of water. Will be keeping this recipe. Thanks for posting it.
