    3 golden potatoes fresh from the ground, quarter'd and then 16th'd
    4 carrots pulled fresh from the ground, coin'd
    2 onions sliced
    Deer meat - one "chunk" per person

    Sprinkles of spices:
    Sage, garlic powder, red-pepper seeds, chipotle-powder, carawray, basil, oregano

    Secret ingredients:
    1/4 cup coca-cola
    3/4 can Kokanee beer


    Warm up dutch-oven over stove element and place some cooking oil (canola, butter, lard, bacon-fat, beef-fat, or whatever you have) and spread around the warming pot.

    On second element, place lid of dutch-oven to pre-heat till very warm.

    Spread potato and carrot on the bottom of the pot and listen to the early sounds of frying. Spread onion over potato and carrot then lay the deer meat ontop of the onion.

    Sprinkle "just enough" of the spices listed above - note - no salt or black pepper in that list. What is "just enough" - between a teaspoon and a tablespoon of each, depending on the type of spice you are using.

    Use coca-cola to "wash down" some of the spices to the bottom of the pot and repeat with beer. Place lid on top and allow to simmer for 4 to 6 hours - test potato for softness - if ready to eat, serve with fresh bread. If not ready when you are, turn up the heat some and allow the beer-n-coke to "lightly boil" till everything is cooked evenly.

    I have two more pots that are much bigger than that one, but, alas, they are made of spun aluminum, so, the heat dissipates quickly ...
