Honest Kitchen: Crockpot venison

Honest Kitchen: Honest, whole food cooked from scratch. Simple, delicious and sometimes from the wild side. Robin, Erin and Michelle often prepare wild game, mushrooms, berries and other foods they harvest, grow or buy locally. Regardless - come cook with us. Copy this paragraph (please leave the links) into your blog and leave your link in comments each Wednesday so everyone can visit.

As a mom, it is great to be able to pull some venison out of the freezer, stick it in the crockpot all day and know that when we get home from work, there is a healthy, organic, free-range pile of meat waiting to be eaten. And that even my two year old can eat it without me worrying about what hormones are pumped into it.

Here is what I used:
* Quart bag of frozen stew meat (deer)
* 2 cups of beef bouillon (I used water and cubes)
* Wild Cheff Roasted Garlic
* Wild Cheff Wild Onion

I threw the whole thing in the crockpot with the water going in first to make sure that nothing stuck to the bottom or sides.

And I set it on low and went to work. 

When you come home, there is nothing better than smelling dinner before you have taken your shoes off.  Knowing that a hot meal that is healthy for you and your family, is ready to go is fantastic and a great time saver.

I made some potatoes and roasted broccoli to go with it.  You know something is good when your two year old will willingly eat it and ask for more.

When you are busy with work and a kiddo, the crockpot becomes your best friend and being able to pull out some meat that you know is healthy... you can't meat it!


  1. Hey Erin, that sounds delicious. We love our crock pot, it saves so much time.

  2. I haven't tried Wild Chef seasonings yet. I need to find them.

    I added a twist to my old stand by of potato and leek soup.

  3. I love a good crock pot meal! This one looks yummy!

Eagles on the trail

Reason number 3,657,935 why my Dad is the best: As we were snowmobiling, we approached a bog and three eagles with about 20 crows took off.  It could only mean one thing in my book - something was dead.  We circled back and walked around in the snow but the birds had left and we couldnt find anything that would resemble a meal.  A part of me thinks that we were in the wrong piece of land and should have been on the other side of the bog but in our snowmobile gear, we were not going to cover a lot of ground.  I was disappointed that we couldn't find what the birds were eating but I was able to get some good pictures of one of the mature eagles and the immature eagle that were flying around.

Where are the women?

This week, my interview with Steve at The Maine Outdoorsman went live. Steve said yesterday 200 people hit his site viewing over 500 pages. That is a lot of people reading about little ole me and hunting. Why? When I think of women who are in the general public's eye and hunt, I can think of 2 - Country singer Miranda Lambert and Sarah Palin. Why only two? Why is the female hunter such a fascinating thing? (I should probably note that I do not have cable so any and all female hunters on the hunting stations are lost to me. I'll keep it to the general public because that's what I am familiar with.) People/media were fascinated by the fact that they could get footage of Palin and her gun, shooting (and gutting) animals but I feel like the nostalgia would be lost if they had the same footage of McCain. Lambert and her hubby Blake Shelton tweet photos of their kills, and comment on what/where they are hunting. I only know this because I follow both. That's it.…

Wanted: Mr. Sportsman

A friend of mine sent me this link and asked what I thought about it.  I had seen it before and was honest when I told him how degrading I felt it was.  Not only was the title of the "Miss Maine Sportsman" application in pink* but the questions were incredibly insulting to those of us that are fighting to be taken seriously among our male counterparts.

Questions like, "Do you clean your own kills/catches?" would never be asked if it were Mr. Maine Sportsman.  It would be assumed that yes, of course men clean what they kill.  Why is that assumption not made of us outdoor women?  Another question, "Do cook [sic] what you catch/kill? If so, what’s your favorite recipe?" would never be asked of men.  

My friend asked me what sort of questions I would ask if it were a Mr. Maine Sportsman pageant.  I came up with a bunch of snarky questions (Do you bait your own hook?) but then I thought about the questions that could have the most impact on the men that would…
