Jackson and I were gifted with a few packages of venison that have been sitting in our freezer for a few months now. Not wanting to let them go to waste, we finally decided to pull some out and turn it into the ultimate comfort food - stew!
What you'll need:
- one large carrot, chopped
- one medium yellow onion, diced
- a couple stalks of celery, chopped
- a few cloves of garlic, minced
- a whole bunch of sliced mushrooms (optional)
- one medium sweet potato, cut into bite-sized chunks
- a pound or two of venison (or stewing beef), cut into 2" chunks
- one can diced tomatoes
- one carton of beef broth
- 1/2 carton of veg broth (or equivalent amount of water)
- spices (I used cumin, marjoram, rosemary, salt, pepper, and a few bay leaves)
What you'll do:
- Cook carrot, onion, celery, and garlic in oil over medium-low heat for a few minutes until onion is translucent. Add sweet potato and cook for a few more minutes before adding mushrooms (if desired). Cook for a few more minutes.
- Add venison to pot and cook until browned.
- Pour tomatoes, beef broth, and veggie broth into pot and turn heat up to medium-high. Season with spices of your choice and bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat and simmer for at least an hour, stirring occasionally.
