I made this up the other day and it turned out pretty darn good. Plus it’s reasonably priced with bison stew meat going for $7.49 a pound at Whole Foods. There’s very little precision to it, it’s “old school, your grandma has leftovers and she threw them all in the pot” stew but it’s tasty and healthy.
1 lb bison stew meat cubed
1 onion chopped
enough garlic to make you happy, chopped
1 large sweet potato rough chopped
1 can diced tomatoes (I used one with peppers and onions)
Any root veggies you want (I didn’t have any on hand but I bet rutabagas would be good)
1 can of diced green chilies
1 jar of Tikka Masala sauce (or cream of mushroom soup or whatever floats your boat)
saute the onions and garlic in olive oil for a couple of minutes until they are translucent. Add the stew meat and brown on medium high heat. Dump that into a slow cooker. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir it a couple of times. Cook on low for 5-6 hours.
The sweet potatoes are a nice contrast to the chilies and tikka sauce. This would probably work well with any game meat.
