  • 200g diced tomatoes
  • 1/2tsp chopped chilli
  • 1/2 clove diced garlic
  • 20g brown sugar
  • 2tbsp red wine vinegar


  • In a pan, sweet sliced onions until soft
  • Add chilli, garlic and tomato and cook too fragrant
  • Add sugar and red wine vinegar and reduce by 2/3 on medium heat – stir continuously or it will burn 
  • Set aside while you grill or cook the venison patties to liking
  • Slightly toast your bun of choice (Trent uses homemade sourdough with black sesame seeds)

  • Enjoy!
