How to make it

  • Brown ground venison (or beef), onion and spices.
  • Simmer diced tomatoes, Worcestershire and peas with the venison mixture for 15 minutes, add the roasted red pepper and as much tomato sauce as needed to reach desired consistency.
  • Continue cooking until fully warmed through. Add grated cheese and remove from heat; let sit until cheese melts.
  • Notes:
  • "Slum gullion" or "slumgullion" or just "slum", is a term thought to have come from the California gold rush. It meant the mud left in the sluice when panning for gold, and the miners also used it to refer to a thin, watery stew or soup made from leftovers. The term first appeared in print sometime around 1850. Another use for the term included fish offal or the waste from processing whale carcasses (in Moby-Dick, which was
  • published in 1851, Herman Melville called it "slobgollion").
  • Every recipe for slumgullion has different ingredients, which is logical since it was originally made from leftovers.

    I am going to love this dish. My buddy 22566 is a sophisticated lady and must phrase things properly; however I must agree with her, bugger that's twice in one day. Yep, as many 2 and 3 Slumgullions as cooks but it's always nice to run across a 5. Thanks for the history lesson cause I like that sort of thing. RJ
