Monday's value meal...

In Northern Minnesota its deer season, the time when folks follow the urge to be the hunter gatherer's that they are and take off too the woods in search of the elusive thirty point buck.  Some have already gotten their deer for the season so I thought I would make today's recipe relevant to the hunt.

VENISON AND WILD RICE CASSEROLE

1/2 pound of venison cubed
1/2  cup green pepper
1/2 cup celery finely chopped
1 clove of garlic
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp curry powder
1 cup raw wild rice
1/2 cup diced onion finely diced
1 cup tomatoes
2 Tbsp flour
1 1/4 cup water
1 1/2 tsp Lawry's seasoned salt

Dredge venison cubes in the flour and brown them in butter over medium to low heat.  Add onion and garlic and continue cooking about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.  Add the remaining ingredients EXCEPT the rice and bring to a boil.  Wash the wild rice well and add to the mixture then transfer to a 2 quart casserole dish.  Cover and bake at 350 degrees for about an hour, stirring twice while its cooking.  This will serve about 6 people.
