  • 600g venison, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 200g okra, trimmed and sliced
  • 400ml coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Prepare the Venison: Season the venison pieces generously with salt, pepper, and half of the ground cumin, ground coriander, and smoked paprika. Bloody hell, make sure you coat each piece evenly!
  2. Heat the Skillet: Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. For crying out loud, don’t burn the oil!
  3. Cook the Venison: Add the seasoned venison to the skillet and sear until browned on all sides, about 4-5 minutes. Remove the venison from the skillet and set aside. If it’s not sizzling, it’s not cooking!
  4. Sauté the Aromatics: In the same skillet, add the chopped onion and minced garlic. Sauté until the onion is translucent and fragrant. Don’t just stand there, keep stirring!
  5. Add the Spices: Sprinkle in the remaining ground cumin, ground coriander, and smoked paprika. Stir well to combine. Get those spices mixed in properly, you muppet!
  6. Cook the Okra: Add the sliced okra to the skillet and cook for about 3-4 minutes. Make sure the okra gets some color, we don’t want it mushy!
  7. Combine Everything: Return the venison to the skillet and pour in the coconut milk. Stir to combine. Bring it together, like a symphony in a pan!
  8. Simmer: Reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the venison is tender and the flavors have melded together. Patience! Let those flavors develop!
  9. Season and Serve: Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper as needed. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley. Serve it hot, and don’t forget to tell them how bloody good it is!
