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.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1814.36 g venison leg roast
- 59.16 ml vegetable oil (divided)
- 29.58 ml rib rub seasoning (most any rub will do, just not too much salt)
- 2.46 ml fresh ground black pepper
- 1preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
- 2rinse roast under running water and pat dry with paper towels.
- 3coat the roast all over with oil, using 2-3 tbls.
- 4sprinkle 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.
- 5Note: 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.
