If you’re looking for a squirrel recipe during hunting season, this squirrel stew by Prepper Potpourri on YouTube shows how to prepare a quick, rich meal in a slow cooker. This is an easy recipe to follow along if you have hunted squirrels and want to change it up instead of frying them. It’s a filling stew because of the combination of thick broth and potatoes. Squirrel stew might sound abnormal, but I’ve known people who prepare squirrel in many different ways. The slow cooker is a perfect idea to let the meat cook and fall right off the bone. Plus, you can use this recipe with other meat that you may go hunting for too.



  • 4 small potatoes
  • 2 large carrots
  • minced garlic
  • 1 large onion
  • beef seasoning mix (to make gravy)
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste


First, peel and cut your potatoes in half and place them at the bottom of your slow cooker as the base. Add the sliced carrots, garlic, and onion to the slow cooker. Add the squirrels on top of the vegetables. Continue to watch Prepper Potpourri tutorial on YouTube for full instructions and details.

Next, once the stew has cooked on HIGH for at least 6 hours, take the squirrels out when you get to the 5-hour mark. Shred the meat off the bone and place them back into the slow cooker. Cook it for another hour.

Overall, this squirrel stew is sweet and the meat is tender because it was slow-cooked in a gravy. It’s an interesting recipe because I’ve only seen squirrel prepared fried. I don’t know if I’d ever come across cooking a squirrel, but this would be a great recipe for those that like to hunt or have friends that hunt.
