Venison or Elk Chili


3 Tbl vegetable oil
1 large onion, finely choped
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1 small hot green chili
1 x pepper, minced (optional)
1 1/4 lb Venison or Elk, cut into 1/2" cubes
3/4 lb ground venison (or pork)
28 oz can of crushed tomatoes
3 Tbl red wine vinegar
3 Tbl ground chili powder
2 Tbl ground cumin
2 Tbl Worchestershire sauce
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, plus a pinch
1 large green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
2 tsp Salt (or to taste)
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
10 oz Can of red kidney beans, drained
3 Tbl Masa Harina (or fine cornmeal) mixed with a little water into a smooth paste ( for thickening)


Heat the oil in a very large skillet. Stir in the onion, garlic, and chile pepper. Saute over med-hi heat until the onion is just tender, about 5 minutes. Add the cubed and the ground venison and continue cooking for about four to five minutes, stirring with a wooden spoon, until the ground meat is no longer red. Add all the remaining ingredients except the beans and the masa harina (or cornmeal). Bring the mixture to a boil then reduce heat to medium and cook uncovered for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. The stew should be fairly thick. Stir in the kidney beans and the masa harina and heat through. Taste and adjust the seasonings.

Makes 6 cups.
