Homemade Stew

It's like meat and potatoes. Actually, it is EXACTLY that, and every tidbit as satisfying as it sounds!

Crockpot Venison Stew is a recipe so simple a beginner could make it, but by the time it's ready you'd never know. As the meat simmers it softens, melding into a medley of beefy broth, hearty potatoes, softened carrots and fresh celery. And since it uses soup as its base, Venison Stew can be made with just a few basic ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen!

Canned beef stew used to be my favorite meal as a kid. I haven't eaten it since discovering how easy and delicious Easy Crock Pot Venison Stew is to make right at home!

What are "Venison Cubes"?

The venison cubes called for in this recipe are the trimmed and cubed meat from the hind-quarters of the deer.  Here they are sprinkled with cumin before stirring to coat.

Ingredients

  • 1-2 lbs venison meat, cubed
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp cumin, ground
  • 2 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 2 celery stalks, sliced
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 cans condensed mushroom soup, any kind, like cream of mushroom, golden, or beefy mushroom
  • 1 cube beef bouillon, (optional)
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • pinch black pepper, ground
  • 2 bay leaves

Mushroom Soup - the Choices

This recipe calls for "mushroom soup", but it's up to you which kind you choose! Pick from cream of mushroom, golden mushroom, or beefy mushroom - they all work excellent here. The recipe pictured here uses golden mushroom. The condensed soups however don't have a lot of actual mushrooms in them - if you like mushrooms in your stew, just add some in with the other vegetables!

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in skillet. Add venison, sprinkle with cumin, stir to coat, and brown on both sides. Leave very rare to finish cooking in crock pot.
  2. In crock pot whisk together bouillon (optional) and hot water. Add mushroom soups and whisk together.
  3. To the crock pot add browned venison, vegetables, worcestershire sauce, bay leaves and pepper. Stir.
  4. Cook on low for 8-10 hours, or on high for 4-5 hours. Stir every couple of hours. Remove bay leaves before serving.

Make It, then Rate It!

      So I will admit, I was hesitant to try a recipe for stew that does not include garlic ; ) However, tried this a while back and it was absolutely delicious! Going to try it tonight with beef stew meat since hubby did not get a dear last season : / ~ I am sure it will still be amazingly delish!

      You know Kenneth, I was just sitting here wondering what I could throw in the crockpot tomorrow so dinner would be hot and ready after I get done planting the garden all day - so glad you commented on this tonight! Think I'll go pull some cubes out of the freezer :)

      Please to meet you as well. Try the stew - it's really, really, really good!

      Be well - Lee

      Hi, Lee,

      Very good writing. Amazing hub. Venison stew . . .yummmm! Voted up and away on this piece.

      Venison is healthier than most of the meat groups--less fat and cholesterol. Of course, you knew that.

      Again, I am honored to meet you and follow you.

      Please read a couple of my hubs and then be my follower.

      I would really love it.

      Thanks.

      Kenneth Avery, Hamilton, Al.

      VvanNess I'm in the other boat - never ate deer until I married a huntin man who cuts and bags his own deer (and fish), freezes it, and tells me to feed the family with it lol! That was almost 10 years ago, and with me being an herbalist and spice lover we've come up with unbelievably delicious ways to turn venison meat into awesome, satisfying dinners. Thank you for your kind comment - nice to see you again!

      Nice! I've always loved deer anything and used to have access to it with friends hunting all the time in college. Unfortunately, I don't have that same kind of access anymore. Beautiful very well-done article!
