In this recipe, pork fat combines with a delicious combination of rich, meaty mushrooms and fresh herbs to make a ragout that, when rolled in the roast, imparts amazing flavor to the venison meat. The bacon acts as a baster to add further flavor and moistness to the roast. Roll up your sleeves and take your time with this one; it is well worth the effort!
