This is a simple recipe for venison stew. Perhaps you hunt, or you know someone who does who is willing to share a little venison with you. While it is a red meat like beef, it has a much richer, stronger flavor. Venison stew is perhaps one of truly comforting dishes on earth. This is what your ancestors ate in their log cabins or along the trail. A pot of bubbling stew could feed a crowd or be stretched over several days.
