      2. Add the egg white and mix well
      3. Divide the mixture into 4

      5. Repeat to make 3 more rosti.
      6. Place the baking sheet with the rosti in the oven and bake them for about 45–55 minutes, or until they are a lightgolden colour and feel tender when pierced with a knife.

      To cook the venison:

      1. Lightly grease the base of the frying pan with the oil, then place the pan over a high heat
      2. Cut each venison steak in half to give 4 pieces and season both sides of each piece with salt and pepper
      3. Place the venison in the pan and cook it for 1-2 minutes on each side, until lightly browned
      4. Then reduce the heat under the pan and add the port, redcurrant jelly, stock cube and 150ml (¼ pint) water
      5. Bring to the boil, and then reduce the heat and simmer the contents of the pan for about 10 minutes.

      To serve:

      1. Place the rosti on a plate and top each with a piece of venison and a sprig of rosemary
      2. Transfer the sauce into a small jug to pour over, and serve immediately.
