Dutch Oven Buffalo Stew & Biscuits

446

One of my ancestors was with Brigham Young on that important trip and wrote about it in his journal. One of the things that I have learned by reading these accounts is that these pioneers spent much of their day just trying to figure out what to eat. All of them carried flour for biscuits and bread and they hunted and fished anytime they could to keep going. We also know they used dutch ovens along the way to cook their meals. This meal is in honor of these pioneers.

1 (½ lbs) of Buffalo meat ( or beef, venison, antelope, etc. )
6 medium potatoes
6 carrots
1 onion
2 stalks of celery (pioneers probably didn’t have this, so you can leave it out for authenticity)
6 bouillon cubes
6 cups water
2 Tablespoons cooking oil
4 cloves Garlic (again, they probably didn’t have garlic, but we sure like it)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Cayenne pepper to taste
3 tsp cornstarch to thicken
For a 12-inch Dutch oven to reach 350 degrees, you’ll need to use 24 briquettes. If you are also making biscuits and stacking your ovens, start 36 briquettes. Cut the meat into stew-sized chunks Chop...
