Cook on medium heat for 10 minutes. Add the corn cobs, placing on rack. Cook for another 15 minutes and then remove corn and boil in water for 5 minutes. Take the marinade and heat in a frying pan, adding a little more oil, then add the butter beans and heat thoroughly.    Serve the venison, sweetcorn and beans with plain or egg fried rice or yogurt and cheese mash
