Slow Cooker Venison Stew

I have received this product in exchange for my honest review and to create this Venison Stew recipe. All opinions are my own. 

Venison Stew

I love using a slow cooker whenever possible to save time in the afternoon and it also saves a lot of dishes. I like not having to worry about getting dinner started after school, homework, and the millions of other things going on at that time.

I try to convert as many of my favorite recipes into slow cooker recipes and my new favorite is this Venison Stew.

Slow Cooker Venison Stew

This recipe is so easy to make in my new Hamilton Beach Professional Sous Vide and 6QT Slow Cooker. This machine is so versatile for all of my favorite recipes in not only the slow cooker but it doubles as a Sous Vide. Don’t know what that is? I didn’t either but it sounded fancy and I was excited to learn more about it. This is what I found out from the Target product page:

It’s a no-fail method of cooking sealed food in a precisely temperature-controlled water bath, ensuring that food is evenly cooked throughout and reducing the chance of over- or undercooking 1) Set up – Season food and put it in a vacuum-sealed or resealable bag 2) Submerge – Place ingredients into the sous vide water bath and enjoy walk-away convenience 3) Enjoy – Delicious, juicy food that’s cooked to the precise temperature you selected.

Slow Cooker Venison Stew

Sous vide uses precise temperature control to cook food evenly and perfectly throughout. Slow cooking gently cooks food over a long period of time, retaining its flavor and moisture.

Just like the slow cooker, walk away and let the appliance do the work. Pretty neat!

One of my favorite things about the machine is the handles because they allow me to move the slow cooker around easily when it is completely full without feeling like they are going to fall off.

Onto the fun part, the cooking. This venison stew takes a little bit of preparation before dropping the ingredients into the slow cooker.

First you have to brown the sides of your venison roast before adding it to the slow cooker.

While you are waiting for the edges to brown you can begin peeling the potatoes.

After a couple of minutes when your venison has browned and your potatoes are all peeled add them to the slow cooker along with seasoning, carrots, and broth.

Let the roast cook for atleast 6 hours but if you are anything like me you just leave it cooking until it’s time to eat but with the Hamilton Beach Professional Sous Vide and 6QT Slow Cooker, you can set the timer to cook your food.

It’s that simple! After you get home from work you can enjoy a delicious venison stew without having to put any more work into making this dinner for your family. It almost feels like you have a personal chef cooking the meal for you.

  22. I have read that is is a great way to prepare steaks.

  23. ellen beck says:

  32. I didn’t realize until reading your recipe that you browned the meat before immersion in the Sous Vide.

  33. ellen beck says:

    I am making venison chili tomorrow and cant wait! It is going to be cold. A slow cooker is a must and such an easy way to serve a nice hot meal that really hits the spot.

  34. yumm… thanks for sharing. my dad would love this

  36. Venison, what a thrill it would be to be able to cook the real thing.
