This was really good. I used a 5 lb. pot roast and didn't add any veggies to the crock pot. The house smelled wonderful after cooking all day! There was a lot of juice in the crock pot when it was done cooking.

Yeah, this recipe was amazing. I had a 6 pound venison leg roast that barely fit in my 6 qt crock pot. I tried to put a rub on it and sear it, but it was too darned big. At any rate, cabernet sauvignon and CoM soup (healthy request) combination was exquisite. I doubled it, and only added as much carrots, potatoes and onions as would fit. The sauce was just beyond compare, though. I'll definitely be using this recipe when I cook the other roast. Thanks so much!

This came out soooooo good! Used venison stew meat (2 1/2 lbs) and am serving it over rice tonight. The whole house smelled so good when I walked in tonight. And I bet my dd won't even realize it is venison (though she will eat it cos her boyfriend is the one who caught it!) Because my dd won't eat onions, I left the onion whole, skinned, in the crock pot so I could have some with mine tonight. It cooked down nicely this way. Cat got half of the wine as I was opening the bottle, so only 1/2 cup went in and it is still good! (Yeah, I know, blame it on the cat!) and I didn't have any mushrooms (wishing I did now)The meat cooked down into very tender fall apart in your mouth bites, the gravy in the pot didn't need any thickening at all. I cooked it on high for 6 hours total. It is so savory and good, thank you!!!!

Wow, this was a huge hit with the whole family! There were no leftovers for lunch the next day. Very tender and full of great flavor. The only change I made was adding a bay leaf. It was PERFECT....

This was delicious. Everyone in my family loved it. I left out the carrots and potatoes and used a beef roast. I'm making it again tomorrow using an elk roast and I'm sure it will be equally as good. I added some seasonings to the gravy and some balsimic vinegar and it was a hit - both on the roast and on our mashed potatoes. Thanks for the great recipe!

I used a 3 lb. venison rump roast for this-it turned out tender and flavorful. I also used regular soup and bouillon instead of the healthy stuff and skipped the veggies. I did make the gravy in the crockpot and it was very good. Next time I will reduce the wine to 1/2 cup; it was a good flavor, but just a little too much of it. Thanks for this very easy venison recipe!
