Elk Vegtable Stew

Wendy Rusch


Craving Beef Stew and all I had was Elk and Venison in my freezer thanks to my brother...So made some Elk Stew!

I don't have a recipe, I just throw things together until they look, smell and taste good. I wrote down amounts as I went, hoping I didn't forget anything :~/

I hope you enjoy it!
