I have never had or cooked caribou before this was my very first time. I was a bit nervous after hearing so many mixed opinions about caribou meat -gamey/tough/dry etc. A friend gave us a nice caribou shoulder so..here we are..eating this Caribou stew for dinner!! I made this EXACTLY as written. I have to say....I would have thought it was beef stew if I didn't know better. This made a great big crockpot full of stew...my in laws came over to have dinner with us and they too enjoyed it and thought it was beef. Anyways...thumbs up all around here:) Thank you for a great recipe:) Read More

Don’t have Caribou in SC but lots of White Tail deer. Used this recipe but with venison and it was great. Cooked for 8 hrs in the slow cooker and venison was perfect. Added 1/2 cup of red wine to give a fuller flavor. Read More
