      Title: Savory venison chili
 Categories: Chili, Game
      Yield: 6 Servings
    1/4 lb Slab bacon, cut into 1/4"
      1 md Onion, coarsely chopped
      6 md Carrots, peeled, halved
           -lengthwise and cut into
           -1" pieces
      2 ts Chili powder
      2 ts Ground cumin
      1 ts Dried marjoram or oregano
    1/4 ts Red pepper flakes
      2 lb Venison shoulder, cut into
           -1/2" cubes
      1 cn Italian plum tomatoes,
           -crushed (28 oz)
  1 1/2 c  Defatted chicken broth
           -(or beef broth)
    1/2 c  Red wine
    1/4 c  Tomato paste
      1 cn Dark-red kidney beans,
           -drained (16 oz)
      1 c  Baby lima beans
      3 c  Cooked rice or barley (opt)
  I like to start off this chili with bacon. Once it browns, use 2
  tablespoons of the bacon fat to wilt the vegetables - then one more
  tablespoon of the fat should be enough to brown the venison. Since
  the meat is lean, brown it quickly over high heat.
  1. Brown the bacon in a skillet over medium heat for about 10 minutes
  or until golden brown. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and set
  aside. Reserve 3 tablespoons of bacon fat; discard the rest.
  2. Place 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat in a casserole; add the onion
  and carrots, sprinkle with chili powder, cumin, marjoram and red
  pepper flakes, then cook for 5 minutes. Add the reserved bacon.
  3. Pour the remaining tablespoon of bacon fat back into the skillet.
  Brown the venison over medium-high heat in small batches and remove
  to the casserole with a slotted spoon. (The meat should brown
  quickly, so raise the heat to high if necessary.)
  4. Add the tomatoes, broth, wine and tomato paste. Bring to a simmer
  and cook, uncovered, for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce
  the heat if the chili begins to boil.
  5. Add the kidney beans and lima beans, then adjust the seasonings.
  Simmer 10 minutes longer or until meat is tender.
  6. Serve the chili hot in 6 bowls (over rice or barley, if desired).
