    1. Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
    2. Stir together the eggs and cream and set aside. Combine the breadcrumbs, Parmesan and parsley in a large bowl; set aside.
    3. Slice venison roast into serving size portions, about 1cm thick. Pound with a meat mallet to about 5mm thickness. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then dredge in flour, shaking off the excess. Dip the venison into the egg, then press into the breadcrumbs.
    4. Melt butter in an oven-proof frying pan with lid. Cook garlic until fragrant, then add the breaded venison and cook on both sides until browned. Pour in sherry and beef stock. Bring to a simmer, cover, then transfer to the oven and bake until the venison is tender, about 45 minutes.
