So glad I found this online, I searched and searched and couldn't find my copy amongst my recipes. Best stew ever.
I've used this recipe for years (since it was first featured in your magazine). Excellent!!
My husband and sons are hunters, so we have much venison steak to use! I used cut-up venison steak for the meat. I also found that the recipe did not have enough liquid, so I added 15 ounces of tomato sauce to the three cups of water. I put in the carrots about ten minutes before adding the potatoes, since they take longer to cook. I added 8 ounces of beef broth with the potatoes, then mixed the remainder of a 15-ounce can with the flour to thicken. I left out the salt, adding just a little low-sodium seasoned salt at the end of cook time. Excellent! A new favorite.
Perfect!!! I`m going to making this tonight. I planned on making chicken soup but I only have 2 small boneless skinless chicken breasts (not much flavor for soup). But I do have plenty of elk in the freezer so it looks like I`ll be making elk, chicken soup. Thanks for the recipe Gene
