You’ll enjoy dinner with minimal effort and maximum flavor, because we understand that busy hunters don’t have time for complicated crock pot recipes. In 7 hours, this slow cooker (Amazon affiliate link) transforms your wild game meat into a delicacy, giving you plenty of time to reload ammo. Don’t worry about the “gamey” taste of venison, because we’ve tamed this wild game recipe like a deer whisperer! Complimented by garden-fresh potatoes and medium carrots, this stew-pendous health concoction will keep your belly full all day in a tree stand. It’s a wild game-changer!

Slow Cooker Wild Game Stew

With about 10 minutes of prep time, this deer meat masterpiece can be prepped before work, requiring no additional adulting after quitting time. This delicious stew should be partnered with quick and easy biscuits or homemade dinner rolls, allowing those fresh out of the oven carbs to soak up all the flavor! Did you forget to prep the slow cooker before work? The Instant Pot can save the day! Just pressure cook the stew instead of slow cooking it. Honestly, I prefer the taste and texture of slow cooker deer meat stew, but sometimes life happens and you need dinner now. Either method, this venison stew is the hero we need – a delicious escape from the mundane suppers, and the ultimate answer to ‘What’s for dinner?’ Tonight, have some pure awesomeness in a bowl, and put YOUR meat on the table. Be the culinary hero you were born to be – one venison stew at a time!”

Deer Meat Stew Ingredients

  • Venison Stew Meat (2-3 Pounds): Nothing says ‘family dinner’ like a generous serving of venison stew meat. It’s the secret weapon against hunger pains by packing a protein punch. Pro tip: aim for 3 pounds if you want 1-2 lunch containers left over – the easy venison gift that keeps on giving.
  • Medium to Large Potatoes (Approximately 6): We’re not talking store-bought potatoes here; we’re talking homegrown, garden-fresh spuds that are so petite they make regular potatoes look like they’ve been hitting the gym too hard. You might need more because, let’s face it, small potatoes have big dreams.
  • Full Size Carrots (Skip the Miniature Misfits): Say no to baby carrots; we want full-grown, mature carrots that have lived a full and flavorful life. These veggies are here to inject so much flavor into your stew that you’ll wonder why you ever considered those tiny, tasteless impostors.
  • Beef Stock Base (For Deceptive Deliciousness): The culinary masterstroke! A beef stock base that works harder than a chameleon at a color-changing contest. It’s here to hide any lingering gamey flavors in your wild game meat, allowing your wild taste buds to simmer down.
  • Worcestershire Sauce (For the Meat That’s Just Too Wild): When your venison decides to go full-on wild, don’t panic – just grab the Worcestershire sauce. It’s the superhero sidekick of your meat, swooping in to save the stew by taming the untamable and making your taste buds rejoice.
  • Garlic and Onion (Fresh If You’re Feeling Fancy, Powder If You’re Not): Spice up your life with a dash of recipe sophistication – fresh garlic and onion (channel your inner gourmet chef). Feeling lazy? Powdered versions will do the trick in this stew recipe, especially if you don’t have time or energy for chopping veggies.
  • Salt and Black Pepper (Because Even Stews Need a Bit of Drama): Salt and pepper, the dynamic duo of the spice world, will add the right amount of flavor zest, to pass the taste bud test.
  • Beef Bullion Cubes (In Case You Want to Skip the Beef Stock Market): For the days when making a beef stock base seems as complicated as deciphering ancient hieroglyphics, try the trusty beef bullion cube. Just add 1 bullion cube per cup of water to the pot, and watch your stew transition into a flavorful masterpiece.

How to Make Venison Stew

This venison stew recipe will also work well for beef stew (for those of you who got skunked last season). But there are some health benefits to using tender venison cuts instead of beef. You can learn more about the health benefits of wild game over beef in this article.
