This was a great winter stew. We made this with lamb instead of venison. I love using the slow cooker and the prep for this was very easy. Next time I would add more thyme and rosemary, but other than that, I wouldn't change a thing. Ate this with a crusty baguette and I'm looking forward to the leftovers for lunch today.
Slow Cooker Venison Stew

I made this recipe last year (09) and have been dying to make it again. I had to use Bud light since that was all I had.....whoa..it still tasted great! The beer adds a nice flavor to it. I threw pretty much whatever I had on hand in the crock pot with it and tasted as I went. Love it. My husband is already demanding it and our buddy is bringing back some venison tonight...so it's already on the menu! I never would have really thought about the beer...but it will definetly be in the recipe this time as well! A good standby recipe for when you have some venison on hand. This too will stay in the queue

This recipe was AMAZING! I added a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce and a can of diced tomatoes. I also served it with french bread. For once, there were no left overs in sight!!!!!

Very yummy and great flavor! I didn't have the ale, so like another reviewer, I used Miller Lite. Turned out just fine.

This recipe is so good, it helped me turn my family on to venison. The "Layer first 14 ingredients" line always draws a chuckle, but the result is seriously good food. At home we typically serve this stew alongside polenta topped with sweet basil and parmesan. It does freeze well in small freezer bags (extract any air with a straw), and so is a perfect ready-to-go meal for hunting trips, where my buddies rave about it.
