Maine Venison Stew

"A slow cooked easy recipe, all ingredients are diced and thrown into the crock pot with no pre-cooking prep work. A hearty tasting stew that is not 'gamey', it would work just as well with beef."

  1. Combine the venison, potatoes, onions, celery, carrots, bouillon, broth, and seasoning sauce in a slow cooker. Pour in just enough water to cover. Turn to High and cook until the stew comes to a boil. Reduce heat to Low and continue cooking until the venison is tender, about 8 to 10 hours.
  2. Ladle off any fat which has collected on the surface, then stir in the peas and mushrooms if using. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Whisk together the cornstarch and water. Stir this into the stew, increase heat to High, and cook until the stew has thickened and the peas have warmed through.


  • To remove as much fat as possible, try the following
  • Rather than ladling the fat off before you add the peas, mushrooms, and cornstarch, allow the stew to cool, then refrigerate overnight. The next day, the fat will have hardened on top and can be easily removed. Proceed by adding the remaining ingredients, and cooking until thickened.
  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

This was edible but not impressive. First off it was WAY too big to even come close to fitting in my crock pot, so unless you have a huge crock pot you need to halve the recipe. I had to trans...

I only made a 1/2 recipe and it filled my crockpot, glad I didn't try to fit the whole thing in it. This is a good start for a stew but the taste was just very bland. Needs.... something, I just...
