Venison and Vegetable Soup

    2 hours 45 min

    A delicious and hearty soup, which makes use of a load of winter vegetables. If you reduce the amount of water added, you will have a wonderful stew. Serve with crusty bread. You can also substitute in beef mince, if you prefer.

    This is a great recipe, but if you want to make a truly "excellent" venison soup try making it with venison mixed with hot italian sausage. It's simply awesome!  -  17 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Usually we just make chilli with ground venison so I was glad to see a new recipe I haven't seen before. This was perfect for fall! It is excellent and we all loved it! The only thing we did differently was add some garlic. Definately a keeper!  -  24 Oct 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was very good. I accidently bought a turnip instead of the rutabaga but my entire family thought it was terrific and had seconds and even thirds.  -  21 Mar 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
