Easy Smothered Beef/Moose/Venison

READY IN: 4hrs 15mins
Recipe by Aroostook

This is an easy way to cook a less tender or wild cut of meat... and makes its own gravy. Great for a family dinner or may be easily increased if putting on a meal for large groups of 50-100.

Absolutly fabulous! I used a whole venison loin and added a can of mushrooms and a beef bouillion cube and a lipton onion/mushrooms soup mix. next time I think I will add even more water since by the 3 hour mark it had greatly reduced. Instead of sliced onions I used a minced onion (that is what I had in the fridge). Thanks so much we had it with mashed potatoes and it was wonderful! Looking forward to the next itme I get to make it!
