  • 2 teaspoons seasoned flour
  • 8 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups Burgundy Wine
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 2 cups beef bullion, broth

  • 6 stalks celery with leaves, sliced

Step 1

In a paper bad, shake together the venison, flours and salt until meat is coated.
Melt some of the butter in a Dutch Oven over medium heat; Brown venison in batches and remove and reserve. Don't overcook.
Return lightly browned meat to Dutch oven. Add burgundy, white wine, bouillon; bring to a boil; add carrots, celery,onions, garlic, bay leaves, parsley, chives, chervil, thyme, salt & pepper & barley.
Cover and simmer for one hour. Add mushrooms and potatoes and simmer 20 minutes more until all is tender.
Stir in sour cream and paprika and simmer 10 minutes.

I tend to start this around noon time and let simmer very slow all day until dinner time. Melts in your mouth!
