I made this with a 4 pound shoulder roast, bone in. It cooked about 45 mins extra for the bone. As others did, I used cranberry juice instead of berries for much the same reasons, the kids would cringe. Hey, they're eating venison so I can't complain too much! My only draw back on this is the high salt content. The beef consomme had a ton, and no low sodium option at the stop & shop. But all in all a delicious roast. Will make again.
DH loved this! but then I took a lead from mama and used cranberry juice (for the same reason she did). I think I would leave the lemon juice out next time as the wine, lemon juice and cranberry mix was a bit more acidic than I would have preferred, personal taste only. DH had two helpings which is something he hardly ever does. The only thing I did differently was to brown the meat and then put it in the crockpot for about 8 hrs instead of the oven.
Made this for DH. He thought it was very tasty! I had to use cranberry juice as I didnt have any craisins - and he would not have eaten it if he saw them in there! lol This is good enough for company! Thanks Kato!
I was given a bunch of venison from my Mother, including a roast. After getting through all the ground venison, we had decided we didn't like venison. But we still had a roast to eat. On Diana Blue's great recommendation, we gave this recipe a try. Wow. Are we ever glad we did. This is a tremendous recipe. We actually enjoyed eating the venison. My fiance went back for seconds! The flavours go together so well. And the roast gets this great, gooey BBQ coating to it that is divine! If we ever find ourselves with venison again, this is the way we are going to go! Thanks for another winner, Baby Kato!
Absolutely tender. I had a venison roast in the freezer and decided it was time to cook it. I went in search of a recipe and decided on yours. It was absolutely wonderful. Thanks.
Delicious. The sauce had a much different flacor than other roast recipes and there was no hint of game flavor to the meat. I had a 3 lb. roast and found the cooking times in the recipe to be much longer than I needed to reach medium rare.
