Easy Venison Stew


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

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and garlic in hot oil until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add venison to the skillet; cook and stir until evenly browned. Stir tomatoes, mushrooms, thyme, sage, tarragon, and salt into venison mixture.
