Slow Cooker Venison Merlot Stew Recipe

If you're a venison lover then hopefully you have tried my other two recipes by now. All three I developed myself this year in my kitchen. Actually the first three attempts on cooking it. All of them came out fantastic and I was thrilled to share the recipes with you. My favorite by far still is Cacciatore Style Venison Click HERE but all the stews have been great. Old fashioned Venison Stew and now this one with Merlot just fabulous!
