Every now and then, we love a nice and hearty stew and this is just that! Venison is very rich in nutrients and minerals, and the bone marrow and bone broth give this a nice boost of collagen, healthy fats and nose to tail nutrition including some growth factors and immune compounds 😉 I call this is bowl of health
This recipe can be made completely carnivore if you omit the onions and the spices, but in this case, we decided to add them for some additional flavor.
To make you need (2-3 portions):
Our venison is from Maui Nui Venison, which is axis deer, but elk or even bison or beef will work just as well 🙈
2 lbs stew meat 🥩
2-3 cups or bone broth (home made is best) 💪🏻
4 slices of corn and soy free bacon – we love Apsey Farms (use code HELEN10) to save 🥓
1/2 half cup diced onion 🧅
Salt, white pepper, garlic powder and bay leaf powder 🧂
Begin by melting the rendered fat (I choose bone marrow for maximized nutrition) in a pot. Dice the onion and sear until brown. Season with slices of your choice 🧅🧂
Dice the stew meat and remove any tough bits. Add the meat to the onions and let it brown. Continue to season.
Slice the bacon and add it to the meat. Let it sear until the bacon is cooked. Next, add bone broth until the meat the covered. As you can see, my bone broth is very rich and solid at room temperature (I used soup bones from Apsey Farms/ use code HELEN10) which helps make this stew even more nutrient rich.
Bring the stew to a mixture and simmer for a few hours until the meat is tender. Continuing to add liquid (water or broth) to avoid it from getting dry.
We like to serve this with miracle noodles which are anti-nutrient free and add some nice variety!
