I have been making this receipe for 5 years...when I was first introduced to bear meat! It is fantastic!! I have also altered the water ingrediant and used a can of cream of mushroom so that there is some "gravy" to pour all over. On occassion, I have seen some people wrinkle their nose at the thought of eating bear meat but when I serve this, they change their minds! Many times, they can't even tell the difference! A stomach doesn't care as long as it's good and this is one of the best. Add/subtract you favorite veggies and enjoy!!

Good recipe. Although I didn't have access to bear meat, I used stew meat. I also placed everything in a crock-pot and needless to say it was great!! This stew also freezes well!! I will make this again!!
