Crock Pot Venison Deer Roast Recipe

As I have previously stated here on my blog, I am not a fan of venison so I don't eat it. However, my hubby loves it from time to time and is appreciative when my brother sends down some of his deer meat to him.

Here is one of my hubby's favorite Venison recipes and it utilizes the crock pot.

Slow Cooker Venison Roast Recipe

3 lb. venison (deer meat) roast
1 1/2 tablespoons salt
1 quart of water
2 1/2 tablespoons bacon fat drippings
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 cup finely chopped onions
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon of parsley
1 teaspoon of ground black pepper

Stir the table salt into warm water in a medium sized bowl until it has dissolved. Place roast into the bowl, cover and refrigerate for 8 hours. Drain water and pat dry with a paper towel.

Place your roast and bacon drippings into a large stock pot. Turn burner up to medium heat and brown the roast on all sides until it is well seared. Remove and set aside.

Turn your crock pot on and set the temperature setting to high heat. Place roast inside it first. Then combine the vinegar, bay leaf, thyme, chopped onion and minced garlic together and pour over top. If needed, add 1-3 cups of water to the mixture so that your roast is completed covered. Stir in the parsley and ground black pepper. Cook in the crock pot on high for 1 to 2 hours...then turn your heat setting down to low and cook for 4-6 hours or until its done. You need to remove the bay leaf before serving. (do NOT eat bay leaves!)
