Turned out great. I must have tender venison, because it was done after less than 6 hours on high. I tossed the stew in the flour, salt and pepper, and browned it then. I doubled the other seasonings. No mushrooms for us. I put Bisquick "dumplings" on top and let cook for about 15 minutes at the end. Family liked it. I might try some red wine, instead of water next time to add some richness. Now I just have to beg some more venison off of my in-laws! LOL!
Awesome stew! I followed the recipe exactly (which I hardly ever do) and it was fantastic! One of the best stews I've ever made. Thanks for posting, I will definitely be making again.
Before this recipe I thought I only liked venison that was ground with beef added. This recipe change that! This is excellent, not gamey at all, very tender and flavorful. I didn't have any mushrooms and added some frozen corn at the end. I cooked it for 6 hours on high. I added some sour cream to the leftovers and a bit more broth and served it over noodles the next night.
My husband said this was the best stew he has ever eaten! My kids were not too hot on it, but I think it was really good, too. I did not have mushrooms so did not add them, but will next time because I love them. The meat was great- falling apart and not a gamey flavor at all. Yummy recipe and sooo easy.
This was wonderful! I've tried many stew recipes here on Zaar and I hadn't yet found a classic thick and meaty stew yet. Until this one. I love doing it in the crock pot and I love adding the flour later. I mixed the flour with a little cold water then let it cook down to the right consistency. I used beef and fresh garlic and it was heavenly comfort food with my fresh honey wheat rolls.
This is a keeper! I am not a big venison eater at all, but this was awsome! My family loved it! I made a big crock pot full, and all that was left was just enough for my husbands lunch the next day. He liked it so much that he asked me to make anothe pot so that he could take it to work to share with his buddies! I made some home made rolls with this and it was gone! Thanks for sharing such a great recipe!
This was the best stew I have ever had, also my first time making stew. I did make a few changes. I used one big potato cut up, and two small cans of mushrooms drained. I did not have beef broth so I just did 2 cups of water and two beef bulion cubes. I threw it all in the crockpot and cooked on high for 6 hours. I add the flour and salt in pepper in when I had two hours left, I kept stirring it and it turned out wonderful. This is a keeper
Delicious!!!!!!! I had to put more meat in the second time I cooked it, the 1lb just fell apart and left the stew light on the venison. My brother had some and he was astonished that it was venison. A real winner in our household especially when Mike my husband, comes back from a long cold and rain or snowy hunting day.
this stew was great...really easy to make (just throw everything into the crockpot) and so good! my husband almost ate the whole crockpot in one day. the meat was so tender when it was finished cooking.
This was very good! I added peas and sprinkled with shredded cheddar cheese when it was done. Thanks for sharing!
