(Approx). 2 lbs venison, 1/2 pound belly pork deskinned and those horrible little bones removed, 2 large onions, 1 lbs button mushrooms, 2 large potatoes, 1 leek, salt and pepper to your taste and a generous teaspoon of mixed herbs. Olive oil or similar to start the proceedings. 1/4 pound Stilton cheese.
Heat the oil in a fairly large pan and add roughly chopped onion. Let them cook for about 10 minutes. Add the potatoes and leek which again have been roughly chopped. Add the seasoning an herbs, turn down low and cover. Leave for about 10 mins occasionally stirring. Meanwhile, cube the venison into fairly large chunks. Add to the pan and mix gently. Now mushrooms can go in, whole, now or later as they will reduce quite a bit. Cover and cook on a very low heat for up to 2 hours, stirring once in a while. Don't want it sticking.
Take pastry out and leave on the side for a little while. Grease the inside of your pie dish/dishes. Now I usually line the base, fill and then put the top on crimping the edges but I suppose it depends what type of pie you want to end up with. Most of mine go elsewhere so I prefer the all round pastry. ( horses and courses).
Anyway, in with the filling which should be of a nice thickish consistency as the potatoe will have broken down. Add a layer of Stilton before you put the cap on. Trim and crimp. Air holes and an egg wash should finish the top. Into the oven at 165 for 40/45 minutes and hey ho away you go.
To be honest I've tried that many different sauces within the mix because as I say to my mates It' how I feel at the time and what's available. I find that venison, as a meat, dries out fairly quickly ŵhen cooking hence the belly pork.

I think all the big supermarkets sell it Jok, it goes well with cranberry just like the venison lol
No I don't think I have. Is that a regular at one of the big supermarkets?

Just a word of warning about the apple wood smoked cheddar, most of it is smoked flavour added to processed cheese, it is not actually smoked. Bloody horrible stuff.
