The filling of this pot pie is essentially a hearty game and vegetable stew, which can be made with any kind of big game chuck or trim. I used pronghorn shoulder and elk trim for the batches photographed here, but it's equally delicious with mule deer or even goose.
This preparation works well for a variety of Utah upland game birds. It's one of my favorite ways to cook up a pair of dusky grouse or a few chukars, and it turns out equally well using pheasant or ruffed grouse.
Whether you're pulling the last of the ground mix out of the deep freeze from a past season or have some fresh trim on hand from this year's hunt, sliders are a quick and easy meal that comes together in a snap.
