Hearty venison or elk stew over beer-batter bisquits

Sharon Carlson


We lived on venison, the first few years we were married, out of necessity. I experimented with the different cuts, since we cut up our own. This stew originated when I experimented with the tiny pieces that were too small to use as steaks, however, were choice pieces of meat.
