Crock Pot Venison Roast

READY IN: 9hrs 10mins
Recipe by JustJan

I used to always cut our venison roasts up into cubes and make venison stew until my sister shared this recipe with me! We now have roast once a week. I don't think that you can overcook this. I make French Dips with the leftovers...if there are any! *October 2009--I've recently made a couple of changes to this recipe that I think have made it even better...I started using black coffee instead of water to make a darker, richer gravy. I also now use low sodium Montreal Steak seasoning.

Huh. I did exactly as written. If husband had not turned it off at 5.5 hours it would have been a pile of ashes by the 8 hours in the recipe. The gravy was burned to the sides of the pot, it was all incredibly salty and the venison was like jerky. This was not a new crock pot and this was the second roast from the same deer. The first recipe I used was fantastic, this was awful. I'm sorry. I read all the reviews, I don't see what I did differently.
