Slow Cooker Venison Sausage Stew
Create a delicious dinner using your slow cooker with my My Slow Cooker Sausage Stew with venison sausages. It is a warming and filling dinner perfect for Autumn and Winter nights. Regular Sausages or Venison sausages both work really well. What I love about a Slow Cooker Sausage Stew is how it can be prepared and left to cook leaving you to get on with other things. Then when you are ready to eat it will be waiting for you. This easy venison sausage stew can be put on and left until you are ready to enjoy it. It also tastes lovely with a glass of red wine.
