We always seem to have venison in the freezer, so I came up with the recipe for this delicious soup as a different way to use some of that meat. It makes a great lunch or light supper served with garlic bread and a salad. -Susette Reif, Liberty, Pennsylvania

"I used diced tomatoes with green chili's to add a kick! Best venison recipe EVER!"

"OK I changed a lot. I used ground Venison cooked in olive oil then added Fresh Carrots, Celery, Onion, Potatoes and let cook for a couple minutes. I added 2 Cups of Red Wine and cooked off the Alcohol. I added 2 cups of beef stock, Fresh Tomatoes, a can of Tomato Sauce (small can), 2 bay leaves, fresh Basil and Fresh Oregano Salt and Pepper to taste. Cooked until the Potatoes were done and served over soup pasta (elbow or ditalini)."

"This is such a great way to use up venison. Very tasty & easy to make. I used 1 lb ground venison, eliminated the frozen veggies & added an extra potato & 3 sliced carrots. In place of one of the cans of diced tomatoes, I used diced tomatoes with jalapenos to give it a kick. Very happy with the results & will be making again!"

"My family LOVED this soup! I did a few things different though. I put this in my slow cooker. Since we can some of our venison, I used that and I also put the tomatoes and onion in the blender then added it to my crockpot. I have one picky eater, so this way I get the flavor of the onion without him picking them out!"
