The Deer meat can be subsituted for other kinds of meat. Dexter still loves this one! I just cooked up my 2nd batch the other week.
Dexter has also been picky about eating this meal sometimes and not eating... he likes variety, so he gets Chicken Stew in the morning, but he is still picky sometimes. Lately Dexter has been eating everything in front of him.
1 lb. ground meat (deer), plus 1 Tablespoon of oil
1 1/2 cups brown rice, uncooked
4 cups of finely chopped vegetables (I used large sweet potato, celery, carrots, zucchini)
7 cups of LOW sodium chicken broth
Brown up meat, drain grease. Add the chicken broth and all the vegetables and rice. Bring to a boil and simmer with gentle boiling for 5 minutes. Then cover and cook for 30 minutes.
I plan on cooling in refrigerator, then scooping out 1/3 cup servings and put the servings on the lightly greased wax paper or foil....freezing, then put the servings into a ziplock bag. Some of the liquid will need to be drained off, mixture does not stick together, so just create a meat mound on the wax paper.
Dexter loves the stew! He stayed in the kitchen the entire time I was cooking.
I now served 2 servings of the deer stew (thawed and slightly heated) with 1/4 cup kibble on the side at night. I let the kibble soak up with the stew liquid that was present on the plate. Cool it off first at least 5 minutes before feeding to you Hav. If you have a meat temperature gauge, make sure the temperature is below a 100 degrees before serving the food.
