Om produkten

The red deer top round is the finest cut for deer roast and is known for its tender and juicy texture. It has a distinctive flavour that is mild yet rich, based on the animal's diet of herbs and plants.

The top round can be grilled, both whole and sliced. A variation on the whole roast is to brown the piece on the grill and then let it finish in a pan over indirect heat. Add a generous knob of butter to the pan and baste the roast at regular intervals. Salt and pepper are sufficient flavourings if you want to let the meat speak for itself, otherwise add herbs to the butter.

We often slice the top round into thick slices (a couple of centimetres), oil, salt and grill. Never let the pieces go over "medium rare" as they easily become dry due to the low fat content of the meat.

The top round is of course also excellent as a classic roast at a fine dinner and can be served with sauce and accompaniments based on personal preferences or why not try a sauce with our mushroom sauce spice, hazelwood potatoes and boiled Brussels sprouts. If necessary, tie up the meat with kitchen string, salt and pepper. Then brown the roast in butter in a frying pan and let it finish in the oven.

It is also important to let the meat rest for a while before cutting it up to preserve its juiciness.

Please take a look at our instructions for game meat in the oven or why not try the recipe "Urbenad helstekt rådjursstek" (page 127) from the cookery book Kocken och jägaren.

If you're interested in an even fancier option, we highly recommend kronhjortsytterfilé, one of the finest details of the red deer.

The meat is shipped vacuum-packed and frozen.

                The crown in the forest

                Red deer has almost more gamey flavour than moose. Can't go wrong when making venison dumplings

                Red deer

                Red deer is, in my opinion, the best meat there is! Got home an absolutely amazing piece and it really melted in my mouth. 10 out of 10

                Christin (Stockholm, SE)

                Fantastically good, melted in the mouth
                Deer in all honour but red deer is slightly better ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

                High quality game meat

                Our concept is to offer the best game meat available, directly to you, the end customer. We make sure you can buy the cuts that are otherwise only sold to wholesalers and fine restaurants.

                100% natural

                We would argue that there is no meat in the world that is as gentle on animals, requires so little of the earth's resources to produce, and has such a low carbon footprint as Swedish game meat.

                A healthy alternative

                Game meat is naturally lean and nutritious because the animals live a free range life and graze naturally. This makes for a cleaner and healthier meat choice.
