Venison and Sweet Potato Stew, a delicious healthy slow-cooked stew with bite-size pieces of venison and big chunks of sweet potato–oh my goodness!

Crockpot meals are my absolute favorite meals. I love being able to get dinner ready in one pot! All you have to do is turn the crockpot on, forget about and then when dinner time is near you don’t have to do anything except eat!

Then the clean up is simple, especially if you paper plate your family like I do a lot. I mean, let’s face it–I’m lazy. Did I just say “I’m lazy”– I’m not lazy, but I really hate having to clean the kitchen for an hour after dinner. A girl likes to relax!

I’m all for simple recipes and this recipe is very simple. I really love making this on a Saturday morning just before going hunting. Usually by the time I get back from the woods the stew is done and it makes the perfect hot lunch for those cold Winter days. Then I go back out for an evening hunt and come back home and eat it again.

Put the venison and flour in the pot and stir well to coat the stew meat.

Venison and Sweet Potato Stew

Prep Time: 5 MinutesYield: 10 Cups
Cook Time: 6 HoursServing Size: 1.25 Cups
Total Time: 6 Hours and 5 MinutesCalories Per Serving: 262


  • 2 lbs venison stew meat, cut to 1-inch cubes
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups of sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup of carrots
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 2 beef bouillon cubes, crushed
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 tea. smoked paprika
  • 14 oz. diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups beef broth (or venison broth)


  1. Put the venison and flour in a crock-pot and stir, coating the venison well.
  2. Add all of the rest of the ingredients, cover and cook on high heat for about 5-6 hours or on low for about 7-8 hours.
  3. Give it a taste test to see if it needs more salt.
  4. Serve and enjoy!

Note: Make absolutely sure the sweet potatoes are cut to a large size–at least 2-inch pieces. If not, they will be overcooked.

This delicious crock-pot meal is fabulous just as it is, but it’s also great served with long-grain white rice. If you have any leftovers, it makes a nice lunch the next day and it’s great home-canned. It looks beautiful in a jar!
