  1. Sounds great over anything even mashed creamed potato but as much as a long for it Latvia is not a beef nation. Milk cows only as winter is too cold. i now drive to Germany Holland border and stock up with beef once a year. It cant be as stopped once and fined so have someone bring it in under cover of darkness. The hunters sell Venison and i buy that when invited. Roast haunch of venison is lovely and the foreleg for stews so will try your recipe with red venison this week and it should be good.

    • Why is beef meat not allowed? Is it because of the Mad Cow disease from years ago? I am sure the venison will be great as well as the beef. I love venison but the only way we get it is to kill nd butcher it ourselves. Many people here do but unfortunately I don’t know anyone that hunts😩

    • Oh no don’t wait! When you retire you have time to cook. With a slow cooker you throw the food in when you leave for work on low and when you get home it’s waiting for you to eat!

      • I don’t know about that…lol…. but thank you for the nice comment! I do have a category for slow cooker recipes too, check that out.

      • I will remember that Diane when I am ready to get one … I bought one for my mom, but she was too short to see inside it, so she made me take it back. 🙂

      • Hahaha thats the first I ever heard that. If you can afford it, check out a Ninja slow cooker. I have the 3 in 1 unit. It works as a cooktop, slowcooker and oven. It also has a buffet setting.

      • I believe I saw that name when I first looked at your blog site. I have to Google it. It is just me here at the house if I’ve never mentioned that before. And, my mom used to do all the cooking, so as the person preparing meals for herself since 2010, the meals are quite easy and unimaginative, many times canned soup and a sandwich.

      • The Ninja would be too big for just one. My mother in law lives alone and she has one that has one heating unit but different size crocks fit on the base. She loves it because when she has company she uses the big crock and just for her she uses the small one.
