    This sounds so good! And a camouflage slow cooker? I had to laugh because that is mostly what it was used for in my family, too — a lot of venison and other game meat. I use mine all the time now and this will be a great dinner for us!

      I actually really like venison, though we don’t have any hunter friends out here in CA, so it’s been a while since I’ve had any!

    I think my mom had a floral or olive green crock-pot that was often used for venison 🙂 This meal is totally up our alley! Coconut basmati rice is a staple, and we’re due to switch up the protein we usually have with it. Yum!

    Excellent recipe! Even the picky eaters in the house ate it all up. Only thing I did differently was add some green onion for color during the last 10 minutes of cooking. We will definitely be making this again.
