Time: 1 hrs and 40 mins • Prep Time: 20 min • Cook Time: 1 hrs and 30 mins
Serving Size: Serves 8
2 lbs of ground venison
2 large onions - chopped
1 cup sliced mushrooms (optional)
3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1tbsp oregano - dried
3 tbsp beef oxo granules
1 tsp black pepper
1 can beef consume
6 oz Red wine
2 lbs peeled potatoes
1 cup Milk (1%)
1 tsp Salt

Add Beef oxo, mix well add flour and mix, add beef consume stir well add red wine.
Mixture will be thick, if it's too thick add a little of the potato water (see below). Simmer while the potatoes are boiling, for about 20 mins.
Boil potatoes until soft. Mash with milk and a little salt. Whip potatoes until light and fluffy. This makes it easier to spread over meat mixture.
Pour the meat mixture into a 11x 13 casserole dish. Put dollops of potato over the top by spoonfulls once you have covered the meat spread with a fork.
Bake @ 350 degrees for about 45 - 60 mins until golden brown. Let sit for a 10 mins and cut into 8 servings.
To ensure that the pie doesn't bubble over into your oven, place a cookie sheet on the rack below it to catch anything that might drip over.
Serve the pie with peas and carrots, or your side dishes of choice. Enjoy this great venison dish!
