Crockpot Venison Stew
You will need:
1 # of venison stew meat
2 T of extra virgin olive oil
1 can of beef broth
2 large onions, quartered
4 medium potatoes, chopped into large chunks
4 medium carrots, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
fresh ground pepper
1 t cumin
The venison stew meat that I had was extremely lean. I could not see any marbling. So I browned the meat in olive oil before transferring it to the crock pot.
Then add the beef broth and onions and cook until meat is done. The duration of time it takes to cook will depend on your crock pot. Some cook ultra fast at a high heat. Others, not so much. Do not keep meat on low if it does not bring meat up to a temperature that will prevent food borne illness.
About 1 hour before serving, add the potatoes, carrots, garlic, pepper and cumin.
Seasonings are highly individualized. Play with this recipe using seasonings that appeal to you.
Serve with a crunchy, green salad.
