Mikes writes: “This recipe is easy but cook time can take a while. Right after the war before all the gas and electric stoves and I was still very young, my Great Grand Ma and Pa would make this outside in a huge 3 legged wash pot over hot coals. My job was to keep the fire going with fire wood and not let it get too hot and use a wood paddle to stir with. I only let it stick to the pot and burn a little one time but I promise you, never again!”


  • 5 pounds venison finely cut or ground
  • 5 pounds chopped onions
  • 2 cups wine
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 can Pepsi or Coke
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder or cloves
  • 1/2 cup Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp each of red pepper, black pepper
  • 1/3 cup yellow mustard
  • 1/2 cup ketchup or BBQ sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • salt to taste


Step 1

Put meat, water and onions in a heavy stock pot and cook until the meat is falling apart. Add everything else except salt and sugar and simmer for at least one hour or longer till the liquid reduces as much as you want it to. Be careful not to let it run out of liquid (stir frequently)).

The author adds: "I wait till the hash is done and taste before adding the sugar or any serious heat items or salt, you may like it just as is. I like it on a toasted bun w/Dukes mayo and a slice of a sweet onion or over rice or semi squished red potatoes. This will keep well in the fridge and freezes very well. If you are out of venison you can sub beef, I would use as lean as I could find and after boiling it I would for sure skim all the fat off the top and you could tell everyone it is ‘heart healthy’and not feel bad about it. You can continue to cook it on low in the crock pot as long as you want, the longer it cooks the more the tougher parts of the meat will break down and becomes tenderer. Make sure that you keep the liquid level constant by adding a small amount of water as needed. I do not measure anything so I would say a tablespoon would be close enough".
