Serves: 5

Total time: 55 minutes


  • 1 pound venison, ground or small cubes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder

  • Salt and pepper to taste


1. In a heavy stew pot or Dutch oven, heat olive oil and sauté venison, onions and garlic on medium-high heat until meat is browned.
