This is my master recipe for venison chili, and it is the best chili you have probably ever had. Seriously. It’s won awards. Beans or no beans, and, honestly, any meat, this is a recipe you need to know by heart. It’s that good.
If you like the classic Chinese dish kung pao chicken, you’ll love kung pao venison. This is a pretty authentic Chinese version of the dish, which isn’t as sweet as the typical steam-table Chinese stuff you get at Sad Panda.

A Greek-inspired venison stew slowly simmered with all sorts of wild greens, from dandelions to lamb’s quarters to wild fennel, amaranth, orache — really whatever you can find. Of course this is also great with turnip or mustard greens, kale or collards, too.
