Venison Stew

If you are lucky enough to access venison this year, you have got to try this venison stew.  We were gifted a deer shoulder this fall from our patient Lowell (thanks again Lowell, you’re the best!).  Check out what I did with the backstrap he gave us, too!  I’ve still got a few more roasts…

I want to share my recipe for beef stock.  It is something so simple to have on hand for an array of recipes.  We purchased a quarter of a cow for the first time a few months back.  With it, we were given all the leftover bones wrapped up and have had them in the…
