Heybo Friendsgiving: Easy Crock-Pot Deer Stew

With the holidays quickly approaching, it’s time to start making plans for your Friendsgiving gatherings. Here at Heybo we believe in get-togethers with people you care about… and you best believe we’re going to be eating good while we’re at it. So if all has gone according to plan with your deer season, the freezer should be full. Friendsgiving is the perfect chance to tap into that meat supply and cook up an easy, yet delicious Deer Stew!


All you will need is some venison stew meat, carrots, potatoes, onions, Italian dressing, and rice. Wash your potatoes, peel, and cube them. Slice your onion. And chop your carrots. Place two packs of stew meat into the crock-pot, then add your vegetables. Pour one bottle of Italian dressing over the meat and vegetables, then fill half the empty dressing bottle with water and add it too.


Do this prep work in the morning and turn the crock-pot on high. Let it cook on high until mid-afternoon, then turn it to low. By the afternoon your whole house will be smelling delicious.

When you are ready to eat, put on a pot of rice to serve the stew over and you are ready to roll!


P.S. If you really want to spice up your Friendsgiving game… serve with a Cider Bourbon Cocktail! Simply mix your favorite apple cider with your go-to bourbon, add a splash of lemon juice and happy sipping.
