Preheat oven to 325°F (170°C).

Season venison and put it in a roasting pan.

Roast 10 to 12 minutes per pound (450 g) for rare or medium-rare meat.

Remove from oven, cover with foil and let stand.

Dice the vegetables very fine and put them in the roasting pan.

Serve thin slices of roast with gravy and mushrooms.
