Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds venison stew meat, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 3 tablespoons salted butter
  • 2 teaspoons basil paste
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
