Venison and Sweet Potatoe Stew
A delicious healthy stew recipe from Amanda at Deer Recipes, that will make you come back for more and that’s ok because it’s very low-calorie. Slow-cooked bite-size pieces of venison and big chunks of sweet potato–oh my goodness! Plus, the house fills with the most heavenly aromatic smell.
Crockpot meals are my absolute favorite meals. I love being able to get dinner ready in one pot! All you have to do is turn the crockpot on, forget about and then when dinner time is near you don’t have to do anything except eat!
Then the clean up is simple, especially if you paper plate your family like I do a lot. I mean, let’s face it–I’m lazy. Did I just say “I’m lazy”– I’m not lazy, but I really hate having to clean the kitchen for an hour after dinner. A girl likes to relax!
I’m all for simple recipes and this recipe is very simple. I really love making this on a Saturday morning just before going hunting. Usually by the time I get back from the woods the stew is done and it makes the perfect hot lunch for those cold Winter days. Then I go back out for an evening hunt and come back home and eat it again.
