Low Stress Venison Stew

This will never win a contest against a well made “from-scratch” stew recipe but it is faster, easier and still really good. Don’t turn your nose up at frozen veggies. They are always better than canned, and sometimes better than grocery store fresh. Quality brands are harvested at their peak, blanched and flash frozen right away.

Wait... wait... that was way too easy. Give me more to do.

  1. Brown the stew meat first in a hot pan, then deglaze the pan with some of your V8 juice.
  2. Substitute your own seasonings for the packet
  3. add some fresh chopped parsley about 15 minutes before taking off the heat.
  4. Substitute the "spicy hot" version of V-8 or add another source of heat... provided all of your crew likes it hot!

  6. Toss in a couple of chunks of glace de viande (meat glaze).
  7. Thicken the broth with a roux, cornstarch, or agar agar powder.
