Hey everyone, I decided I'm going to thaw some stew meat today so I can cook up a stew for dinner tomorrow. With all the venison I've cook, somehow I've never made a stew... so I don't have a recipe available yet. I did find one or two recipes here in the roadkill cafe, but I'd like to see a few more options before I head out to get my ingredients. So lay it on me, how do you guys make your venison stew?

I don't really measure, so amounts are approximate.

Cook on med heat:
3 tbl. Veg. oil
1 lb stew meat (+/-)
Lg. onion, diced

When brown, add:
4 C. water with beef bullion (1 cube per cup)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. thyme
1/4 C. ketchup
1/4 C. BBQ sauce

Bring to boil, add:
1/2 C. Bacon
6 diced potatoes
2-3 diced carrots
1 Can yellow wax beans or 1-2 C. fresh beans

Bring to boil again, then
Simmer until carrots are done.
EDIT: To thicken, I stir in corn starch or flour in cold water and add to stew.

Serve with rolls, italian, or french bread.

Thanks TMH, sounds excellent! I'll play around a little and see what I can come up with. Picked up some potatoes, onions, carrots and parsnips. Most other stuff I got lying around the house already.

The recipe you make sounds good TMH, here's the way I make mine though.

1 pound stew meat
5-6 diced potatoes
6-8 sliced carrots
1-2 stalks sliced celery
Beef broth or bouillon cubes
1 tablespoon Gravy Master
Flour.
Cooking oil.
Salt and pepper

Put about 1/3 of a cup of all purpose flour in a large zip lock bag or plastic Tupperware
container with a lid and add the stew meat. Shake to coat the meat.
Put some oil in a non stick frying pan (or regular fry pan) and add the coated meat and
any remaining flour.
Cook over medium heat until browned.

Remove meat/flour from fry pan and put in a large pot (I use a 6 quart size cooking pot).
Add all of the sliced and diced veggies I mentioned, (add any other veggie you like as well;
I don't add onions or anything else cuz this is just the way I like it, it's simple but real good).

Anyway, once the meat and veggies are added to the cooking pot, fill the pot with broth or water to about 1 inch
below the meat and vegetables.
Add salt and pepper to taste and the Gravy Master.
If you used water kind of crush and add about 8 bouillon cubes.

Stir and bring to a boil then simmer til the carrots are tender, stir often.
You'll notice that you will have a perfect gravy by using and browning the meat with the flour. Guaranteed success.


Enjoy!

Another way too 2 pounds venison stew meat
8 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 onion diced
3 stalks celery, diced
8 large carrots, peeled and diced
3 cubes beef bouillon
2 (14.5 ounce) cans beef broth
2 tablespoons browning and seasoning sauce
2 cups frozen green peas (optional)
2 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup flour
1 cup water
Coors lights
Directions
Cube venison in 1 inch cubes
Brown venison in pan

Combine the venison, potatoes, onions, celery, carrots, bouillon, broth, and seasoning sauce in a slow cooker. Pour in just enough water to cover. Turn to High and cook until the stew comes to a boil. Reduce heat to Low and continue cooking until the venison is tender, about 2 to 4 hours.
Ladle off any fat which has collected on the surface, then stir in the peas and mushrooms if using. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Whisk together the cornstarch and water. Stir this into the stew, increase heat to High, and cook until the stew has thickened and the peas have warmed through.
Pour in a bread bowl and have it with some ice cold coors light
