    ColSanders's Note:

    This recipe uses a slow roasting technique that produces a medium rare roast that's light pink from the center all the way to the edges. Its absolutely the best I have ever made. Oh the regrets for not having found this method 30 years ago.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (4 lb) venison leg roast
    • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil (divided)
    • 2 tablespoons rib rub seasoning (most any rub will do, just not too much salt)
    • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper


    1. 1
      preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
    2. 2
      rinse roast under running water and pat dry with paper towels.
    3. 3
      coat the roast all over with oil, using 2-3 tbls.
    4. 4
      sprinkle half the rub and half the pepper over the top side of the roast and press in lightly, turn roast and repeat with remaining rub and pepper.
    5. 5
      Note: Resist the urge to salt the roast, if you salt it you'll wind up with an unpleasantly dry roast. Add your salt at the table when you serve the roast.
    6. 6
      heat a large cast iron (or other oven safe ) skillet until its hot, add remaining oil to skillet. Sear roast on all sides in the hot skillet, 1-2 minutes per side.
    7. 7
      insert a meat thermometer into the roast and put skillet and roast in the oven.
    8. 8
      roast until the meat has reached 135-145 degrees, about 4 hours.
    9. 9
      remove skillet from oven and tent the roast with foil, and let it rest for 20 minutes.
    10. 10
      slice and serve the roast.
