Venison Skillet

tammy-wiggins Dinner ,

Sometimes life is just busy beyond control. This recipe exists in my box because of one of those nights when grocery shopping was out of the question. Using items I had in my pantry and a couple of shortcuts, this meal hits the table in an hour all warm and satisfying. Here are the ingredients:

Up until a couple of years ago, each trip to Alaska meant several packs of Pioneer gravy for my mom-in-law. Now it’s my favorite too.

1 Prepare the meat. Chop half the onion in to small pieces. Add them to a skillet over med high heat. Add a pound of ground venison. Stir over the heat until all the meat is browned. At this point if you are using hamburger, drain the fat off. There is no need to drain venison because it is so lean.
2 Make the gravy. At the same time you are preparing the meat, make the gravy according to package directions. Boil 1 1/2 cups water then add the mix whisked with 1/2 cup water in to it. Turn off the heat and whisk.
3 Add the gravy. Turn off the heat on the skillet and add the gravy along with 2 Tbsps of worcestershire sauce and 2 tsps of garlic. Add 2 cans of drained mixed vegetables and a can of cream of mushroom soup. Stir it all together.

4 Initial oven time. Put the skillet in an oven preheated to 350 for 15 minutes. While it is cooking, chop the biscuits in to quarters.
5 Final oven time. Remove the skillet and stir it. Top with the biscuit quarters. Return to the oven for 20 minutes. The mixture should be bubbly and the biscuits lightly browned.

Let the skillet cool down for a few minutes before serving.

Dinner is ready!!
