Serious Elk Stew Chili

Beef stew has always been serious business. Let’s face it, a plate heaping with potatoes, carrots, and beef swimming in savory gravy demands an air of solemnity. Succinctly- beef stew ain’t no corndog. The serious elk stew chili marks a final grasp at staidness and structure as we lurch into the mania of summer recess. Today the school doors close for the summer. High time for taking inventory. Time moves on and the juncture for action is the present. Reality is what it is. Right? In the future, today may become the past which we wish to relive. Best way to cope is to keep it simple and do it right the first time. The moment is ripe for a full throw-down of some serious chili- elk style.

¼ C flour
1 T chili
1 t coriander
1 t garlic powder
1 t Northwoods seasoning (Penzey’s)
¾ lb elk stew meat, cut into small pieces

4 oz red potato, diced
6 oz carrots, chopped
1/3 C pickled jalapenos and carrots
1/3 C onion, chopped
1 ½ C vegetable juice


1) In a bowl, mix flour and seasonings.
2) Coat meat with flour mixture.
3) Add potatoes, carrots, jalapenos, and onion to a slow cooker.
4) Next add the coated meat to the slow cooker.
5) Pour vegetable juice over the contents of the slow cooker.
6) Cook on high for 5 hours.

Tasting Notes:

Options of this chili varied. I thought it was terrific- Spicy, stewy, and delicious. The ITP generally found it too spicy. I’ll blame the pickled jalapeno/carrot two-some. In reconstructing this chili, I wouldn’t change a thing, which is good news, as the time machine is on the blink.

    I really liked the spicy jalapenos and carrots. It gave the chili a nice punch that regular beef stew often lacks. Thanks for your feedback. Have a great day.
