How to make it

  • dig your coal pit, start coals off to red hot
  • when bottom layer goes to ash add your dutch oven right on top of spread out coals
  • In a Dutch oven, sauté venison cubes in butter until brown on all sides.
  • Add onions, garlic and veggies
  • sauté until vegetables are wilted.
  • Sprinkle with flour.
  • Stir in (1 cup of brandy) the soup and water
  • Stir to blend.
  • Cover and place on coals at edge of campfire
  • Add coals to the oven lid.
  • Cook 45 minutes, check for tenderness (rotate oven occasionally)
  • this may take up to two hours to cook and build a gravy
  • you have to maintain your bed of coals and refresh oven lid from time to time as well
  • Season to taste with season salt and fresh ground pepper
  • this is great in the fall, cook this in your yard while your splitting wood or raking leaves
  • serve with remaining brandy, sitting down

    I've done a similar Elk stew recipe for years but without the brandy. Guess what I'm gonna try next trip!

    This is definitely a must do at our camper up north while splitting wood. I am going to try it in the crock pot too. Great post!

    Hey Trout,

    This sounds great, a must try for me. I love being outdoors in the fall. Especially cooking something over a fire. Thumbs up

    if you sauteed in a skillet ahead of time..and then threw it in a roaster or crock should come off close right...the thing about a fire pit outdoors is the lazy fall day

    Wow you think this would work in the slow cooker? Or slow roasted in the oven? What temp do you suppose? I want to surprise my hubby! We have plenty of brandy on hand to give this one a good whirl. Let me know on the other cooking procedures? Thanks for the great post!

    Not a big fan of venison-still makes me think of Bambi-I know,crazy. I do have a friend that brings me some from time to time & believe me I do eat it. I'm not digging a coal pit tho-have to do it inside. Nice recipe. Thanks.
