Venison Stew

No recipe image available.An elegant venison red wine stew. Since venison is leaner than other red meats, salt pork has been added for extra richness.

Recipe Ingredients:

3 cups red wine
1 1/2 cups red wine vinegar - divided use
2 bay leaves
1/8 teaspoon allspice
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped carrots
1 cup chopped leeks
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons salt
3/4 cup sliced mushrooms
3/4 cup pearl onions
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup beef broth
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 teaspoon oregano
1 pound salt pork
4 pounds venison, cubed

Cooking Directions:

  1. Combine red wine and 3/4 cup red wine vinegar in a non-aluminum kettle. Add bay leaves, allspice, chopped celery, chopped carrots, and chopped leeks.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, sauté sliced mushrooms and pearl onions in oil until soft.
  3. Dissolve flour in beef broth. Add to the mushroom mixture with chopped garlic cloves, oregano, and 3/4 cup red wine vinegar; simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.
  4. Fry diced salt pork in a skillet until crisp; drain and add to mushroom mixture.
  5. Sauté venison in a skillet until brown. Add to the mushroom mixture.
  6. Transfer all into the kettle with reserved liquid; cover and bake at 350°F (175°C) for 2 hours, or until venison is done.
