Venison Stew with Roasted Vegetables

Let me first state that i dislike stew with slimy overcooked veggies. I usually end up with this when I use the pressure cooker for my stew. Last nite,I tried something a little different, and MAN is it good.

2 lbs venison - 1" to 2" chunks
2 carrots
medium onion
large potato
can lima beans - reserve till end
3 ears corn - cut kernels off
4 cloves garlic
olive oil
flour
S&P
Beef Stew Seasoning packet

i put 1/4c flour into a gallon zip lock with the meat, toss to coat, and brown in the pressure cooker until browned. remove meat to a bowl, deglaze pan with water until all chunks are removed from pan. put meat back in, cover with water until 1" above meat and add the seasoning packet
start he pressure cooker and while waiting for it to start rocking, set oven to 350 and spray a large baking sheet.

Dice all veggies, mince the garlic, toss with a bit of olive oil and some S&P, place in oven and set timer for 30 mins.

By this time the pressure cooker should be rocking, and temp reduced to maintain. when the veggies are done, open the PC (using the tap water on the lid method) and add the veggies to the mix along with the lima beans. check the water level, make sure you are not sticking on the bottom, give it a good stir, put the lid back on and fire it back up for 12 minutes. this is just to infuse some flavor from the roasted veggies and the soup.

start to finish in exactly 1 hour, and it tastes like it's been cooking ALL day. the veggies are cooked but have just a touch of crunch to them still, and they garlic flavor is throughout the dish and distinguishable. It's not the usual sloppy mush you'd normally get from a pressure cooker...it's just amazing and i'm having a hard time typing with my mouth full.

Long Beard...there's a TON of red tags available. Contact the game commission in your region, they will send you a list. I have a local farmer here with quite a few tags and he is anxious to get them filled. Fawns make for some tender vittles... I think they call it Mountain Veal
J/K, well....only sortof, but seriously , the red tag program is there for a reason and the farmers are VERY happy to have hunters come out to help. it's a great chance to meet some new farmers and maybe get some new places to hang a stand in the fall. The tag costs you nothing but some time in the field.

funny...i ended up with alot of leftover broth and some veggies. wanted some more meat in it real bad...then I remembered a couple jars of canned venison in the cabinet. put one of them in a pan, got it boiling again just to make sure there was no nasties (My LORD did that can of meat smell GOOD!!!) and then added the rest of the stew today. got 2 more days out of it much to the wife's dismay
