This is a simple and tasty way I make venison. Like anything else it's better with fresh ingredients rather than canned, but this is what I had on hand. This is wonderful served over brown or wild rice.

The meat was so tender and you did not taste wild in the stew at all. The only thing I'm going to do different next time will be add 1/2 of the onions in the beginning then add the carrots 5 minutes before the potatoes and the rest of the onions. Great stew. Read More

This one's a keeper and a good base recipe for experimentation. We reduced the onion to 1/2 and added a bit of cumin oregano and 3-4 stalks of celery. Read More
