And If You Wish To Make A Piece Of beef Taste Like venison Of deer Or bear

This is an excerpt from Le Menagier de Paris
(France, 1393 - Janet Hinson, trans.)
The original source can be found at David Friedman's website

And if you wish to make a piece of beef taste like venison of deer or bear, if you are in bear country, take numble or leg of beef, then parboil and lard it, spit and roast; and let it be eaten with (a sauce of) wild boar's tail. Let the beef be parboiled, then lard it along its length and cut into portions, and then put the hot boar's tail (sauce) in a dish over your beef which first is roasted or boiled in boiling water and taken out soon, for this is more tender than deer.
