Venison Stew in the Electric Pressure Cooker

As I mentioned in a previous post, we ran out of beef and have been using venison in its place.
It has been met with some resistance, but after realizing that has no affect on whats for dinner, they have conceded. You hardly notice it in spicier foods like tacos and chili, but I have had to dress it up some in regular dishes. Today I made "Beef" Stew. We don't make big announcements about the fact that it is  really "Venison" stew.

If you have an Electric Pressure Cooker follow the instructions that are specific to your model.

 Venison Stew

2 pounds cubed Venison (fat removed)
2 Tablespoons Oil ( I like Olive Oil)
2 Cups Beef Broth (or  water)
1 onion
6-8 peeled and quartered potatoes
1 pound carrots, peeled (I used baby carrots)


Turn Pressure Cooker on the "Brown" setting. Add oil.
Place the meat, half the onion, garlic, salt and pepper (to taste)

Add Broth (or water)
Turn the "Brown" setting off and set the Pressure Cooker to 10 minutes on the "LOW Pressure" setting. Place lid on cooker (make sure the regulator knob is set on "seal).

After pressure cooker shuts off, CAREFULLY, release the steam (follow your cookers instructions).
Add potatoes, carrots, rest of onion and place the lid back on and set for 10 more minutes on the "LOW Pressure" setting. (make sure the regulator knob is set on seal)
After the Pressure Cooker shuts off (shows 0 time left and beeps) release pressure CAREFULLY (follow your cookers instructions).
Unplug Pressure Cooker:

To make gravy

Add 1/8cup flour to one cup cold water. Stir well.
Add to ingredients in the Pressure Cooker and stir well. 

If too thick add more water. 

Perfect for a cold winter day!

  1. I always thought I would like to eat more venison, but Renoman doesn't hunt. As a little girl I can remember bursting into tears on the rare occasion that Mum cooked it. Thanks, Mr. Disney. :-P

  2. It sounds like you can basically use it the same as beef but just with more flavor enhancements. I have the old fashioned kind of pressure cooker and I rarely use it anymore although it is great for cooking a chicken quickly to shred. I would love to have one of the new ones with all the settings. Thanks for sharing on the Four Seasons Blog Hop.
