This recipe of venison stew, is my husband's favorite! The meat is very tender, full of flavor with a melt-in-your-mouth taste! If you prefer a spicier kick, just add 1/2 t. or more of "Cayenne Pepper" when the salt & pepper is added. Even a few dashes of "Hot Sauce" gives extra flavor! You will definitely come back for seconds!

yield 4 (unless you have "Big Eaters" serves 2-3!) Recipe can be doubled!
