If you are lucky enough to find fresh venison it's divine in this slow cooker recipe with red wine and spices.
We enjoyed this recipe. I made it with left over venison as we had a lot left over. Have made it again as well with additional add ins of vegetables. - 31 Dec 2014
This is a great recipe using venison. I'm amazed at the low ratings, must be new. It's hard to cook great meals with venison without going the extra mile to get some of the gamey flavor out. I added potatos and carrots. Had to use a cup of water,a full 15 oz can of tomato sauce and only used one lb of venison. The tomato gravy turned out excellent in thickness. Like a lot of my tomato based stews, I added 1/4 cup ketchup,a tbsp of worcestershire and two tsp of bacon grease. Wow, delicious! This is a keeper. I challenge anyone to try this. - 18 Jan 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was good stew, even better the second day. However, I don't think venison should be cooked this long, as it has little to no fat content. As often happens, some bites were tender and others were chewy and dry. I used a cut labeled by my hunter as "hind roast." I'd be interested to know what cut of meat others used. In my opinion, the gaminess that some people complain of is due to the age of the animal or perhaps not butchering promptly. The meat my hunter provides always has a pleasant flavor. - 21 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
