DH is a great home chef, last night he played around with some venison a friend kindly provided. Ed's creation smelled so good it was difficult to wait for dinner as the warm scent of smoky cinnamon wafted throughout the house. We served this over broad egg noodles and had a salad of greens, Stilton and pears with roasted pecans and a nice Cabernet! Live a little, try it soon. We used a smoked ham shank but if you don't have one handy try adding some smoked sausage or Andouille slices. *Zaar would not acknowledge the shank in the recipe so I used Andouille sausage in the ingredients. This is even better the 2nd day!
