Crock Pot Venison

READY IN: 10hrs 30mins
Recipe by Sweetiebarbara

Tender and tasty! We had a lot of venison, were cleaning out the freezer, and decided to do something easy. This is the first time I have ever cooked in a crock pot! When I ate "crock pot meals" in the 60's they all tasted the same. This is quite good, so decided to post the recipe, so we can make it again. I used to add 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, and a small can of tomato paste, but decided, over time, I really liked it better without those 2 ingredients. Tonight, I adapted the recipe for stove top using my enameled cast-iron cookware... first browning the meat, vegetables, then adding the rest of the ingredients.
