How good does this look? Venison stew is like nothing else you have ever tried. Rich, flavorful, yummy.

      Indeed! It definitely is an acquired taste for those who didn’t grow up in hunting families, but yummy if you like it! The slow roast makes all the delicious flavors come out. Savory!!

    Hey! Looking for venison recipes and this looks delicious! Only question I have, how do you think this would do in a crock pot instead of the oven?

    • imeeshu says

      it would probably do just as well, though you may want to brown the meat first. give it a whirl and let us know how it goes!
