Something else. An excellent venison stew recipe for folks who do not like a "wild game taste". A slow cooker is essential. I recommend slow cooking for 5 hours, chilling overnight, and then again slow cooking for another 5 hours. This maximises flavour without making the veggies mushy. Also, additional flour should not be needed if the meat is first dredged in flour before browning. - 24 Jul 2008

Used different ingredients. Wonderful... cooked as is, except added carrots instead of parsnips, and it came out perfect. Would make again! Thanks for the recipe. - 24 Jul 2008
