    Absolutely lovely. Used more wine than was suggested though.  -  02 Nov 2013


    I'm cooking this recipe right now on the stove top in my cast iron dutch oven; it's not ready yet, but looks and smells delightful. I wasn't sure how much Balsamic vinegar to use - I'm using less meat overall (moose), and I added 3 Tablespoons of vinegar. Damion, if you ever end up reading this, could you please let me know how much vinegar you usually use? Thanks!  -  09 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Havent tried it, but am going to. But a quick question...I have heard that you need to let the venison "sit" in vinegar or lemon juice to get the "odor" out before you prepare it. Would that be the same thing you are doing when you put the "kiwi and red wine" in it? Thanks!  -  12 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
