Serves: 4
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 3 hours 30 minutes


Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds elk venison stew meat, cut into cubes
  • 2 cups red wine (Burgundy, Chianti or Merlot)
  • 1 cup brandy
  • 2 1/2 cups beef stock
  • 6 slices thick bacon, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 cup pearl onions
  • 16 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons thyme
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 green onions, chopped (optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Heat Dutch oven pot over medium-high heat and cook bacon until lightly browned. Remove and drain on a paper towel. Leave bacon drippings in the pot.
  3. Sear cubed elk meat in bacon drippings until browned on all sides. Do this in batches so as not to overcrowd the pan. Remove and set aside. Add diced onion and chopped garlic and sauté until translucent.

  5. Add wine, brandy, tomato paste and beef stock into meat mixture. Stir gently. Add thyme, salt, pepper and bay leaf. Put back into the oven with the lid on and cook for 3 hours or until meat is tender.

(Optional: To thicken sauce mix cornstarch and cold water together and pour into pot and stir.)
