How To Make The Ultimate Venison Stew.

You’ve managed to harvest that big buck or doe this year. Now what do you do with all of that meat that you’ve stored in the refrigerator. At Gadsden13, we think it’s as important to know how to properly prepare your venison, duck, elk, fish as it is to shoot it. After all, if it tastes like garbage nobody wants to eat it.

I once heard someone say…”Now I don’t have to pretend that I like venison”. I thought to myself, “Why would someone have to pretend”? So, I started doing some informal research. Nine times out of ten, the reasons the person gave me for not liking venison was due to poor preparation. That’s why we share our favorite recipes. You know how to harvest it, we also need to know how to cook it.

We hope you like our venison stew recipe. It’s all from scratch, and is delicious. We’ve even added easy-to-make drop dumplings! Enjoy, and let us know what you think in the comments.
