This one's a keeper. The only thing I did differently was at 9 hours, I removed the roast, added a little bit of thickener to the crock pot, tossed the sliced venison in the sauce, then let it cook another hour. I could taste the vinegar which wasn't a problem because I like tart sauces. However, I have family that don't so next time I'm going to try brining it in beer and cooking with apple juice instead.
I've been cooking and eating venison for as long as I can remember & this is the best recipe I have come across. I served it to friends who claimed to not like venison and their opinions were quickly changed. I have passed the recipe on to lot of people!
This turned out pretty awesome. It was my first time cooking venison, and I was worried about smell and gamey taste. The smell of this dish was wonderful, and I didn't notice any gamey taste at all. Very good!
Made for dinner yesterday. Wasn't really sure what to expect. After a few hours of cooking dd said,"what smells so heavenly?" All three kids and Dh loved this dish. Served with hard rolls. Great and easy recipe!
Excellent!! Very easy to put together!! I didn't have time to brown the roast but my husband since this was the best crockpot venison roast!! Thanks!
We cooked this for friends that always have the best Venison recipes. The husband couldn't stop talking about how good it was. To quote "best roast ever, hands down".
Excellent recipe...Instead of browning in a skillet, I smoked the roast for several hours in a smoker and added some brandy to the crock pot while cooking. Then made a cream peppercorn sauce from the drippings and added it over the meat on the serving platter.
Even my daughter, who isn't a fan of venison, loved this. I was out of brown sugar, so I used 1 1/2 tablespoons of molasses instead. All good. Served it over rice, and everyone raved. Many thanks for sharing!
I tried this when we had company they just loved it, I have give it to a few people & they too think is fantastic thanks for posting it, any recipe I can get for venison is welcome mmlwjr
