Preparation steps

Step 1/7

For the venison: Season meat with salt and pepper and tie off the roast. Heat oil in a roasting pan and brown meat on each side. Roast in preheated oven at 200°C (approximately 400°F) for about 40 minutes.

Step 2/7

Meanwhile, heat honey in a small saucepan until liquefied.

Step 3/7

Stir vinegar into honey. Baste venison with honey mixture repeatedly during roasting. Remove roast from oven and allow to cool to room temperature. 

Step 4/7

Finely chop red cabbage. Cut bacon into thin strips and fry until crisp. Peel and slice onion. Peel and core pineapple, then dice. Remove stems from chiles, cut into thin rings and remove the seeds. Combine all these ingredients in a large bowl.

Step 5/7

For the marinade: Mix ingredients together, pour over cabbage mixture, toss to coat and let marinate for 30 minutes.

Step 6/7

For the sauce: Boil orange juice and sugar. Mix cornstarch with a little cold water and add to orange juice mixture. Add orange zest and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Allow to cool.

Step 7/7
