venison stew meat
potatoes, peeled and quartered
carrots, cut into 1 inch pieces
Oh my goodness. I frequent this site a lot. I use the recipes a lot. But I have never left a review. This recipe was so delicious it prompted me to make a profile so I could review it!
First off, venison is so tough and mildly gamey tasting. So, I have never been thrilled when my husband cooks it. It was always so tough and gummy. I felt like I would never chew it enough to swallow it.
I thought it would be great to slow cook this type of meat to help tenderize it. I ran across this recipe and boy were we surprisingly impressed. I didn't change a thing in the recipe. I cooked it for 2 hours, added the carrots and tatoes and cooked it until they were tender.
Then I served it over mashed potatoes. This was so good I wish my mouth was bigger.
Try this, you will not be disappointed.
This was the WORST recipe I have found on this webpage thus far. My husband and I couldn't make it past the gamey taste (and smell)!
This stew was delicious! I did let it cook practically all afternoon before adding the veggies - in order to make the deer meat extremely tender. I also added more vegetables (corn, green beans, etc.) This is a keeper!
We were trying to use up some of our stored venison and came across this recipe. It was wonderful! Even our neighbor who said she hated venison liked this stew.
I found this a very good way to use up the tougher cuts of meat on a deer.
I used brown gravy mix in place of the flour to
make a more robust stew.
For people who don't hunt. Would not know that you must soak your venison in cold water to get the blood out of the meat. That is what causes the gamey taste. We process our own deers and the quarters are soaking while I am processing other parts of the meat. Try it sometime, you will never know it was venison.
This was excellent! I was out of potatoes so I cooked it without and served the stew over egg noodles. Very flavorful and tender! I will definitely save this recipe for the next time we get some venison.
This was delicious! It was not at all gamey. It had wonderful flavor and could have easily passed for beef stew. I did not add oregano but I doubled the garlic. Thanks for this wonderful recipe.
