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.
Pan seared beef, fresh carrots, onions, celery, potatoes and mushrooms simmer in the crockpot while swimming in a bath of lovely bold red wine, Guinness and beef broth until the gravy is nice and thick and the beef is fall off the fork tender! My one AND ONLY Beef Stew recipe.
