- 3 lbs. ground venison
- 1 large onion
- 1 cup carrots diced
- 1 10 oz. bag frozen peas
- 2 T. olive oil
- 3 lbs. potatoes peeled and sliced thick
- 1 8 oz. block cream cheese

- In a large skillet, saute the diced onions and carrots until soft. Add ground venison, curry-ish rub, and cumin and mix with the veggies. Continue to saute until the meat is browned. Remove from heat and add the frozen peas. In a separate pot, cover the potatoes in water and cook until soft. Remove the soft potatoes from the water, add the sour cream, and the cream cheese and mash until smooth. Ad salt and pepper to taste. Take the meat mixture and put into a deep casserole or baking pan (approx. 13 x 9) . Smooth the mashed potatoes over the meat mixture until the taters are approximately 1-1 1/2 inches thick all over. Put the casserole into a pre-heated 325 degree oven or ceramic cooker set up for indirect cooking. Bake for 1 hour or until tops of potatoes are just starting to brown.
