KILO FOR KILO, NOTH­ING BEATS VENI­SON FOR A HIT OF BULK-BUILD­ING PRO­TEIN. DIG OUT YOUR MAL­LET: IT’S HAM­MER TIME

4 x 140g VENI­SON, STEAKS, HAUNCH OR LOIN A BUTTERNUT SQUASH, PEELED AND CUBED A RED CHILLI, DICED 2 TBSP CO­RIAN­DER, CHOPPED 2 TBSP PUMP­KIN SEEDS, TOASTED 2 TBSP SHERRY VINE­GAR 1 TBSP RAPE­SEED OIL

Not only will pum­melling a slab of buck meat with a mal­let make you feel like Chris Hemsworth, but it’ll give you Thor-es­que up­per arms too. “Leaner than beef and boast­ing more pro­tein, veni­son also packs un­ri­valled lev­els of cre­a­tine, to switch on mus­cle growth,” says Price. So a pounding of flesh will help your bi­ceps and shoul­ders grow to heroic pro­por­tions.

Place each steak inside a Zi­ploc bag and smack them down to 1 cm thick. Once you’re done tak­ing out the day’s stress on your haunch, roast the squash at 200° un­til soft, then set aside to cool. Throw the other in­gre­di­ents into the roast­ing pan along with the squash and shuf­fle to coat the lot in oil. Sea­son your ham­mered meat and stick it in a hot pan, flash-fry­ing the veni­son to keep it pink. Serve with the butternut squash and salad leaves – a feast fit for a Norse god.
