There may be better stew recipes out there but this one is so simple and quick to throw together. Take about a pound of venison cut into small chunks, a couple of carrots cut into rounds, a few red potatoes cut into chunks, and some celery cut into small pieces. Put it all in a crock pot and pour in a quart of beef broth, and salt and pepper to your liking. Turn the crock pot on high until it all gets warm and then stir in a packet of brown gravy mix. Turn the pot down to low heat and let it simmer for a several hours. This literally takes just a few minutes to make if you already got everything cut up and its some pretty good eating. If you like your stew with a thicker broth you could add two packets of gravy mix but I just use one. This is a good one to do around lunch time so it will be ready when you come in from the afternoon hunt.
