Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in a pan and sauté 1 chopped carrot and 1 chopped onion until browned. Add 3 sprigs parsley, 1 bay leaf, a pinch of thyme, 1/4 cup vinegar or 1/4 cup marinade liquid (if the venison has been marinated before cooking). Simmer until reduced to 1/3 original quantity. Then add 3 cups Brown Sauce and bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour. Add 10 - 12 green peppercorns and simmer 5 more minutes. Strain the sauce into another saucepan and add again 1/4 cup marinade liquid and cook slowly for 30 minutes more. Then add 1/2 cup dry red wine. Add enough freshly ground black pepper to make a hot sauce.
