    Something else. Used thai sweet chilli (1 tbsp) and 2 fresh red thai chillis in place of chipotle. Omit flour, but add cornflour with half a cup of beef stock and a splash of rice wine. Stir fried mushrooms, onions, a thumb sized, sliced piece of ginger and a fennel bulb. Stir fried the venison, added back the vegetables and all the marinade and stock. Served with steamed thai jasmine rice. Fabulous!  -  23 Nov 2010


    We really liked this, was a little spicy but not too bad..if you don't like too much spice then scrape off the seeds from the peppers..  -  28 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
