    Foe a really lean venison I'd suggest adding some fat or another meat with fat. Render it first.

    Potjie is an old bull vs young bull game.

    Fry onions. Remove onions.
    Brown meat. (you may want to starch).

    Stack your veg and have the best stock you have time for.
    Made a size 4 pot once with impala that I had in buttermilk for 1.5 days ahead of time (in a back leg quarter) and 7 okes polished it.

    Nice, to try this. Do you leave meat at the bottom and stack veggies on top, roughly how long should it cook for?

    coca cola voetsek!

    Ideally you want to layer and not stir. You will use a spoon but that'll just be to lift meat off the bottom so it does not stick. MeatSmall whole onions (and what you browned) CarrotPotatoes (cut or baby) PumkinMushroomsVeg like marrows etc on top. You can always add more stock but difficult to thicken once your whole pot is going. Time will be dependant on the meat you use. Brown and cook long enough before adding veg. I also add veg layer by layer. Have your fire on the side and add bit by bit. You don't want to rush. Realistically you are looking at 4 hrs plus for a decent size pot with red meat.
