Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. Remove the steaks from your fridge to allow them to come up to room temperature.
Chop the potatoes lengthways into 1cm slices, then chop into 1cm wide chips (no need to peel).
Pop the chips onto a large baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.
When the oven is hot, bake on the top shelf until golden, 25-30 mins. Turn halfway through.
Meanwhile, grate the cheese. Halve, peel and thinly slice the onion.
In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise and dijon mustard (add less if you'd prefer). Set aside.
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium heat. Once hot, add the onion, season with salt and pepper and fry, stirring occasionally, until golden, 10-12 mins.
Add the balsamic vinegar and sugar (see pantry for amount). Cook until caramelised, 1-2 mins more. Transfer to a small bowl.
Wipe out the (now empty) pan and return to high heat with a drizzle of oil.
Season the steaks with salt and pepper. Once hot, lay the venison into the pan and brown the meat for 1 min on all sides.
Lower the heat slightly and cook for another 1 min on each side. TIP: Venison is best served rare but if you like it more well done, cook for another 2 mins on each side.
Once cooked, rest the steaks on your board loosely covered with foil. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw meat. The venison is safe to eat when browned on the outside.
While the steaks rest, halve the burger buns.
Pop them onto a baking tray, sprinkle the cheese over the bun lids and bake on the middle shelf of your oven until melted and warmed through, 2-3 mins.
When ready to serve, slice the steaks widthways into 1cm slices.
Spread the dijon mayo over the bun bases. Top the bases with the vension steak, caramelised onion and rocket, then sandwich shut with the cheesy bun lids.
Serve the chips alongside. Add a dollop of ketchup (see pantry for amount) for dipping.
