Use any combination of game for this slow cooker recipe. I made it with bits of venison, pheasant, pigeon, duck and partridge. If you buy any game and have just a little too much for the recipe you are making, just put the excess in a bag in the freezer and soon you will have enough to make a mixed game meal

For the dumplings

Mise en place

  • Preheat your slow cooker, if necessary, according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Method

  1. Heat the oil or fat in a pan to a high temperature.
  2. Add the game pieces and fry on all sides until they start to brown, then place them in the slow cooker.
  3. Add the onions to the pan and fry for a few minutes until soft, stir in the garlic and cook for a further minute of two.
  4. Transfer to the slow cooker.
  5. Stew the flour in the frying pan for 1 minute and slowly stir in the wine, stock and tomato puree ensuring that you are not left with any lumps.
  6. Add to the slow cooker and cook on low for about 7 hours.
  7. Stir the casserole, add the carrots and cook on high for 45 minutes.
  8. Meanwhile, mix together the dumpling ingredients, adding enough water to make a soft, but not sticky dough.
  9. Shape into 8 balls.
  10. Stir in the leeks and add the dumplings to the slow cooker. At this stage, you may feel you need to add more stock, wine or water.
  11. Cook for a further 30-45 minutes until the dumplings are light and fluffy.
