This is the most simple stew I have ever made and it is delicious. you can vary the meat according to what you have on hand. The same goes for most of the veggies too. That's the beauty of crock pots! Just about whatever you throw together is sure to please.
Good Quality Olive oil
1 lb. wild game stew meat
1 lb. wild game breakfast sausage
1 large yellow onion
1 large potato
2 sticks celery
12 med. brussels sprouts
4 or 5 large garlic cloves
1 red or orange bell pepper
2 tbl. stone ground mustard
1 tbl. ground cumin
2 tbl. worcestershire sauce
2 14 oz. cans tomatoes w/diced garlic, oregano and basil
1 15 oz. can red kidney beans
1 14 oz. can mild or med. enchilada sauce
Into crock pot empty the canned goods and turn temp on high.
Put 2 tbls. olive oil in cast iron skillet and brown stew meat, then add to crock.
Next cook the sausage, basically ground meat with seasoning. Then add to crock
Chop onion and put in skillet and cook til translucent and add to crock. Make sure to scrape all the good stuff from the skillet bottom at this time
Cut potato, carrots, celery and add to crock
Quarter the brussel sprouts and add to crock
Chop garlic and toss in.
Add cumin, mustard and worcestershire
Add just enough water to cover all ingredients
Cover and cook on high til it starts to bubble around the sides of crock, then turn to low for 4 to 5 hours. Add pepper about 10 minutes before serving.
Garnish with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of cilantro.
This makes many servings, just how many I am not sure . I guess approximately 6 to 8. What I like is that I can freeze a couple containers for later or my next hunting trip. This is a hearty satisfying meal and it only takes me 20 minutes to throw together. A lot of meals for a modest effort. Bon Appetit!
