Venison steak with organic mushrooms, red cabbage and Luxembourg "Kniddelen" (dumplings)

Cut up the red cabbage very finely and slice up the onions thinly, then sauté them together in the hot lard, seasoning them with salt, pepper and cinnamon. Add ½ litre red wine and the vinegar. Leave to simmer slowly, with a lid on, on a low heat. Peel the pears and cook them in ½ l of water with 100 g of sugar until they are soft. Boil down the lingonberries on low heat with 75 g of sugar.

Mix well together, in a bowl, the flour, eggs, ⅛ litre of water, salt and pepper (white, ground), using a hand blender. The dough should remain firm. To cook the "Kniddelen", bring salted water to the boil and then use a tablespoon to separate off small pieces of the dough and place them in the boiling water. The "Kniddelen" are ready when they rise to the surface of the water.

Garnish them with bacon fried in a small amount of butter.

Sear the steaks briskly in hot oil. Wrap in aluminium foil, put to one side and keep warm. Remove the hot oil from the pan, then add a knob of butter to the hot pan and sauté the mushrooms, the finely chopped shallots and the garlic. Add ¼ litre of red wine and season with salt and pepper to taste.
