Choctaw Hunters Stew

Choctaw Indians were native to the southeastern United States but were forced to relocate to Oklahoma in the 1800s. Many of their recipes are ancient and include native food sources. Deer meat, known as venison, was an important staple. The Choctaw and other Native American tribes shared their cooking techniques and food sources with the early settlers. Variations of this recipe include the addition of okra or using pork suet in place of beef suet.
