Recipe from "New New Orleans Cooking", by Emeril Lagasse and Jessie Tirsch, published by William Morrow, 1993.

Wild Mushroom Tomato Bordelaise:

Heat the oil in a Dutch oven, or large, heavy pot over medium-high heat. Add the onions, carrots, and celery, and cook, stirring, until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic, and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add the mushrooms, and cook, stirring occasionally, until they give off their liquid, about 4 minutes. Add the salt and pepper, and stir to mix well. Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the wine, and cook, stirring to loosen any bits on the bottom of the pan. Cook until the wine is reduced by half. Add the veal stock and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until reduced by half, about 1 hour and 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and adjust the seasoning, to taste. Cover and keep warm until ready to serve with the venison.
