Crock-Pot Venison (Beef) Stew

Stew.  Is there anything more comforting on a fall day?  I thought not!!

I first showed this Crock-Pot Venison Stew here on YouTube.


3 pounds venison, cubed (1 inch)
6 med. red potatoes, unpeeled, 1 inch cubes
6 carrots, cut into 1/2 inch slices
1-2 large onions, cut into large chunks
2 cups V-8/home-canned tomato juice
3 T. quick-cooking Tapioca
2 t. Worcestershire sauce
1 T. beef bouillon
1/4 t. pepper

Dredge meat in flour seasoned with garlic salt and pepper.  Quick fry in hot melted lard or shortening just to brown the outside.  Place in crock-pot (6 quart). Add all ingredients.  Slow cook on low for 5 1/2-6 hours or until meat and veggies are tender.

I've made a lot of stew recipes over the year and this one from my sister-in-law is always the favorite.  I think it's just so simple and doesn't have any surprising flavors.  Just good comfort food especially when served with warm crusty bread.
