  • Reindeer meat should be taken from the neck, shanks, and parts of the shoulder, and be cut in uniform pieces about 2 inches square. Place the meat in a large stewpot with water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and let simmer about 30 minutes. Then add the rutabaga, continue to simmer for 15 minutes. Add carrots, potatoes, onions, and salt. Place the peppercorns and bay leaves in a small cheesecloth bag and place in the stew. Cover and continue to simmer until the meat is tender, about 2 1/2 hours. Serve.
