This slow cooker stew is super-easy to make. Venison is pan-seared, then slowly cooked in a thickened beef gravy with (or without) vegetables. Enjoy with crusty bread, if desired. This recipe also works well with beef stewing meat.
The last time I had venison, I didn't like it, my mother fried it. Last night I tried this receipe with sliced garlic, olive oil, lots of sliced mushrooms and green beans with potatoe, carrots and celery. I cooked it slowly in a large cast iron dutch oven, and the stew completely dis-appeared. We loved it. Can't wait to make another batch. - 05 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
There was no gamey flavor at all from the venison. All five of my children actually ate this the night I made it and again for leftovers! - 14 Mar 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The family loved this. I did not have time to prepare in the slow cooker, so I made it on the stove, added 3T vinegar to tenderize the meat. Turned out geat. - 04 Oct 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
