Slow Cooker Venison Roast

| 1/5/2015 9:33:00 AM

Using venison in place of beef in my family's dishes works for us for a few reasons: The meat comes from deer my husband has hunted in the wild. The deer feast in nature and are thus free of pesticide-laced feed. Additionally, because the meat is the product of a sport my husband enjoys, it is a cost-effective meat source. From hunting, my husband garners meat from about three deer a year. This provides more than enough meat for our family of two. 


Roast has long been a favorite dish of my husband's. Allowed to cook all day in the slow cooker, it produces an aroma that simply smells like home. If you have access to a nice venison roast, try this recipe. Delicious and mouth-watering, it is indistinguishable from beef roast.


• 1 venison roast
• 2 cups crushed tomatoes
• 1/4 cup peperoncini rings (Banana Peppers)
• 2 small onions, sectioned into chunks
• 1/4 cup water
• 2 tsp garlic
• 2 tsp salt
• 2 tsp pepper
• Optional: carrots and/or cubed potatoes


1. Place water and onions in the base of the slow cooker.

2. Set roast on top of the onion bed.

Hi Monica, trying something different this Christmas roast? Going to poach a 1 kilo elk haunch in stout then crisp it up in the oven with coves and herbs etcetera, although timing will be a pure guess, so cooking venison regularly I was wondering if you might wave any suggestions for the timing? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks P.Beard/:U.K.
