Hearty and Delicious Venison Stew

Hearty & Delicious Venison Stew

The most popular recipe on this blog is my Venison Meatloaf recipe. I hear from hundreds of readers who just LOVE my venison meatloaf. I love it too! Venison is sometimes a difficult meat to work with. Especially when you have picky eaters. But I have found a few tricks to take the gamey-ness taste right out of the meat. I knew I needed to share my favorite hearty and delicious Venison Stew with you too.

We have been promised a share in some venison by a friend this season. So I am praying extra hard he shoots something! We are on the last of the venison in our freezer! BOO!!!

The slow cooker is my friend when it comes to making this stew. I just recently discovered Slow Cooker Liners which make clean up AMAZINGLY EASY!!!! (I mean really… where have these been all my life!) The slow cooker really helps to break down the venison meat. Low and slow makes yummy and tender.

This venison stew is perfect for a cold winter night. It makes a lot. But it just gets better every day. So perfect leftovers. Serve with a side of crispy garlic bread and life couldn’t be more perfect.

    ’tis the season to cook up what the boys are hunting. I saw that recipe loved by many for years when I was married (big hunters they were).

    Living in Colorado we tend to get a lot of venison but I don’t think I’ve ever made a stew with it before. I’m definitely going to be giving your recipe a try.

    Hello! I have been looking for a venison stew recipe, this one looks great! I wonder if you can suggest an alternative to adding coke or diet coke to this recipe – perhaps if I understood what purpose the soda serves, I could figure out how to substitute accordingly? Thanks!

      Hi Lauren! The coke is to help tenderize the meat as well give a slight sweet taste to the stew. You can substitute water for the coke or use wine for another depth of flavor.

        Thanks so much! I actually used beer (it worked great!) the first time I made this, and am making it again right now with red wine.

      Hi Selina!
      You can absolutely substitute another liquid. Wine or Beef Stock would be very tasty options. The dt Coke gives it a unique flavor, a touch a sweetness and helps to tenderize the meat.

    This looks wonderful! I’ll be making it for the Wild Game Dinner at our church tomorrow night! I’m a little nervous about the coke though! Hope it goes well!

    I’ve made this twice now and it’s been delicious both times. I’m not a big rule-player when it comes to recipes and was a bit apprehensive at using 2 cans of coke, so I just used one and a cans equivalent of water. The venison was tender and delicious. I’m sure 2 would be fine, but we will probably stick to 1.

    When I made it last night, I had forgotten to buy brown gravy, but I did have an old packet of Club House Beef Stew, so I tossed that in. . Still delicious.

    This recipe is forgiving and adaptable. We will be making it again, for sure!
