I didn't have a green pepper so I used fresh mushrooms but green pepper would probably taste good also. This is what I did:
First of all, I did not use the olive oil. When I told Grumpy it called for olive oil he told me not to do it, that you should always use butter when cooking venison. (Yeah, he's my venison "expert" so I have to listen to him!)I sauteed the mushrooms(would have done the same if I had peppers). When they were cooked down I removed the mushrooms from the pan and sauteed the venison. I added the mushrooms back to the pan when the venison was cooked, mixed in the soup mix with 3 cups of the water. I mixed the other 1/2 cup of water with 2 TBSP flour. I found this was not enough flour to thicken this to gravy, so I added a little less than 2 TBSP more flour with just enough water to make it smooth. You should always mix the flour with the cold liquid you are going to add to the hot boilng liquid in your pan to prevent lumps.
Thanks for the recipe! It is great for a night when you don't have a lot of time!
