Yummy Beef or Venison Stew

Yummy Beef or Venison Stew


"This is a yummy stew . . . you can omit the veggies, and just put it over rice or bread. It is a snap to make, and very versatile! You can use different vegetables, fresh or frozen. I don't recommend canned, because they will turn to mush."

  1. Cut meat into bite-sized pieces. Mix with onions, and toss mixture with 1/3 cup flour. Heat oil in a large saucepan, and cook over medium low heat until browned.
  2. Place browned meat and bouillon cubes into crock pot. Add water until meat is covered with 1 inch liquid. Cover. Slow cook on high for about 5 hours. This should be long enough to make meat very tender.
  3. To thicken up the gravy, mix 1/2 cup flour with 1 cup hot water until flour is dissolved. Pour into crock pot, and stir. Repeat if not thick enough. If you are not using veggies, the stew is ready to pour over the rice now. If you are going to use veggies, add them now. Cook until vegetables are tender.

The last time I had venison, I didn't like it, my mother fried it. Last night I tried this receipe with sliced garlic, olive oil, lots of sliced mushrooms and green beans with potatoe, carrots ...

I don't own a slow cooker but was looking for a beef stew recipe without a tomato base. I settled on this one because it looked quite easy. I followed this recipe as closely as I possibly could....

Great. No game taste!

We don't eat red meat, so this was a pretty heavy dose for us, especially after we eat the leftovers tomorrow. But it was a good and easy stew, and my kids (3 and 4) liked the meat.

This was very easy to make. The only seasoning came from the bouillon cubes, so I tasted it about halfway through and added some salt and pepper. You could make this with beef or lamb as well. I...
