Ingredients
2 lbs wild boar stew meat
2 tblsp light oliveoil
1 cup diced carrot
1 ½ cups sliced yellow onion
2 tlbsp slivered garlic
½ cup thinly sliced celery
3 cups diced beets
1 cup seeded, diced tomatoes
2 qts beef stock, or Basic Game Meat Stock
2 cups hearty red wine
1 tsp fennel seed

1 ½ cups diced red potatoes

In a heavy-bottomed stockpot, lightly brown meat in 1 tlbsp of oil. Remove meat with slotted spoon and set aside. Add another tlbsp of oil along with carrots, onion, garlic, and celery to stockpot and sauté until vegetables just begin to color. Return meat to pot and add beets, tomatoes, stock, and red wine, fennel, and thyme. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 1 ½ to 2 hours, carefully skimming any scum that forms on surface.

Add potatoes and cabbage and cook for 10 minutes longer, or until potatoes are just done. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in vinegar and parsley just before serving. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream or feta cheese.
