Venison and Veggie Pot with Caramelized Onion Sauce

We had some leftover venison steak sandwich meat that we didn’t cook when we made our Philly Cheesesteak Tacos, so we wanted to use it to do something different. For this, we broke out our mini-Dutch ovens and cooked the venison with carrots and cabbage and then tossed it in a homemade caramelized onion bbq sauce. That said, you can also use a larger oven safe deep pot/pan to make a larger version for more of a family style meal.

We served this with Roasted Baby Potatoes.

  • When your carrots and cabbage have begun to brown, slice your meat into ribbons and add to the veggie mix. Sautee until mostly cooked.
