Need 3 Gallons of Soup Quick? This simple recipe is so easy and fun.  Just slice, dice, toss into the Can-Cooker, turn on low heat and come back in 90 minutes.  Let it cool a bit and this will feed your family or your entire deer camp crew for several days.

The soup is so tasty that one 8-ounce serving with a slice of your favorite bread/butter will often beckon your taste buds for another serving.

 Tasty, nutritious, zero fat.  Hard to beat!  Store it cold after initial servings, but on day 2 and 3 – it tastes even better.  Ladle soup into a bowl with the tasty Kluski noodles, place in the microwave for another quick and tasty meal.

The list of ingredients shown here will make about 36 servings of about 8 ounces each.


  1. To a large frying pan, add 2 Tbsp. olive oil, 1 Tbsp. minced garlic and ½ cup of onions, turn on medium heat.  Add the cubed venison and gently turn to brown all the meat over 10-15 minutes.
  2. While the meat is cooking, to the large Can-Cooker, add all the remaining ingredients. Turn heat to high with can cooker cover in place.  After 15 minutes or so, add the browned meat, snap the cover in place.  Turn to simmer for 90 minutes.
  3. On the side in a 1-gallon pot, bring 6-7 cups of water to a boil, add 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil and the Kluski noodles.  Bring back to a slow boil for about 8-9 minutes or until noodles are soft.  Drain the noodles and prepare the soup bowls.
  4. Serve the soup with a generous portion noodles, add a slice or two of bread and butter on the side.  Mmmm, so good.  Enjoy!for-sto-12092016-cooking-picture-2of2
