Venison (Or Beef) Stew

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Kaarin

This rich stew is infused with the flavors of white wine and dill. It's a hearty and comforting meal by itself, but is wonderful with salad and fresh rolls. I really like this made with venison-the meat is so lean.

Wow...this was really good. Being from Wisconsin I had to add some butter to the recipe. I added a half stick of unsalted butter to the olive oilused to brown the venison. In addition I sauteed a half pound of thickly sliced baby portabella mushrooms in a small pat of butter for 10 minutes and then added them to the stew and switched out the diced potatoes for halved fingerling potatoes. This is definitly the dish for all those who claim they don't like Venison!
