I am blessed to be able to cook with elk meat multiple times a week. Finding recipes with amazing flavor and adapting them to the elk meat is one of my favorite ways to keep it fresh and new. This week I found the ingredients available for this version of stew and the result was incredible flavor and tenderness. I will be making it again.

Ingredients:

Elk Roast

Fresh Thyme

2 C. Red Wine

2 C. Beef Broth

2 T. Tomato Paste

Flour-for dredging

Salt

Pepper

1 Medium Onion Chopped

4 Cloves Minced Garlic

3 Large Carrots Chunked

6 Small Potatoes Quartered

Splash of Red Wine Vinegar

Place the wine, beef broth and tomato paste into the pan and stir and scrape the steak drippings into the sauce until well combined.

Tie all the fresh thyme into a bundle with cotton string or one of the sprigs of thyme and place it onto the meat.

Add the prepared onion, garlic, carrots and potatoes to the crock-pot. Pour the sauce into the crock and stir it up. Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours or on high 5-6 hours or until the veggies are soft and the meat is tender.
