Reindeer ROCKS!, April 22, 2004 - 03:28 AM
Reviewer: Kim Vibaek from Copenhagen, Denmark
A good friend of mine from Greenland gave me a leg of reindeer, which I prepared using this recipe. Of course this meant more work - boning and tying up the meat before marinating it - but it was worth it; and what a marinade! To add moisture I rolled the boned meat around a few strips of bacon, and I used madeira for the sauce as I had no sherry in the house. Another deviation was that instead of the suggested apple/red onion salad, I served it with a Waldorf Salad (my wife insisted). Good meat calls for good wine, so I had bought a bottle of 1998 Barolo. This turned out to be an excellent choice as the Barolo is quite powerful and goes very well with game. All in all an excellent meal with at total rating of 5/5!
