On the hunt for a new dutch oven recipe for next friends and kids critter hunt weekend. Last few times it has been critter gumbo with squirrels, rabbit, couple leftover and dove and maybe some duck thrown in. Thats not a bad thing, in fact usually a hit.
Pulled this out of my 1970 Remington Sportsman WildGame Cookbook. Interestingly enough, out of about 150 pages and "hundreds of savory ways to prepare all kinds of game", only 10 pages are dedicated to venison. Mostly small game including coons, muskrat, pigeons, woodchuck, all your upland and migratory birds, etc. Think that says a lot about the shift in hunting focus the last 50 years.
Anyway, there is a couple things I plan to change. #1 not sure about the biscuit topping, albeit I am a big fan of cornbread -which it mostly appears to be. Not a fan of peas and thinking little red wine instead of beer. Also, will basically stew it in a dutch oven all afternoon, take it off and add the topping, then bake til done. Will probably try it with some of the last deer I killed next time at the lease, then maybe assorted small critters the next kid hunt.
Just wondered if anybody else does this, and if so what you'd do to this one.
