Weston Cone Strainer
Weston Pasta Machine with Lasagnette Cutter
Weston Smoker
Weston French Fry Cutter & Dicer


Roast the venison bones in the oven at 400°F until browned.

Transfer the bones into a stock pot and pour in the water. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Simmer 6-8 hours.

Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for another 2 hours. Use a Cone Strainer to separate the bones & veggies from the broth. Keep the broth simmering.


While the broth simmers, prepare your pasta (you can do this a day before).

Mix the dry ingredients thoroughly, then form them into a mound. Dig a well into the center with your fingers, then break the egg into the center. Use a fork to mash the dry ingredients into the egg until the pasta dough forms.

Use a Pasta Machine to roll the dough into sheets, then use a Pasta Cutting Attachment to form your noodles. We used our Lasagnette Attachment, then twisted the noodles to make spirals. Let the noodles air dry.


Preheat your Smoker to 200°F, fill the water bowl, and soak your wood chips for at least 30 minutes.

Coat the outside of your piece of venison completely with a mixture of the pepper and garlic. Sear in a hot skillet for a minute on each side (until browned).

Smoke the venison for 2 hours.

Once smoked, allow the venison to rest.


Use a Weston French Fry Cutter & Vegetable Dicer with the ½" blade to chop the carrot, potatoes, and shallot. Place the veggies into the simmering broth.

Finish it off

Cook the pasta in boiling water for 3-5 minutes, until al dente, then add it to the stew.

Cube the venison and drop it in. Finally, rip the kale into smaller pieces, mix into the stew, then serve.
