"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."
"This recipe rocks. Best venison pot roast I ever had. My wife, who hates deer meat, had two plates. I did make two variations though. I cut he roast in half and put salt pork in the middle then tied it. Followed the directions and added potatoes and carrots on top. Thank you for the wonderful meal."
"a definite favorite!! I make my own onion soup mix and can lower the sodium that way.<br/>Thanks for posting. Making a moose roast with this recipe right now. :)"
"I have never eaten wild game and this year dh got 2 bucks and filled our freezer with meat. I had no idea how to cook venison so I came looking and tried this one out! I have used this recipe a few times for beef but have never been wild abut it but oh man, with venison, this is outstanding! I will be making this often! Best pot roast I've ever had! All the yumminess I love of pot roast without the fat and greasiness of beef! Thanks so much for posting this!!!"
"I didn't have any venison roasts in my freezer anymore, but I had an inexpensive-cut beef roast that I tried this with. I had to make my own copycat version of the onion soup mix and there seemed like an AWFUL lot of dried, minced onion in there, but it turned out DEEELICIOUS!!"
"This was perfect! I had a venison roast that was on the edge of freezer burn, found your recipe and just went for it :) I actually made a mistake and cooked it on Low for 8 hours fwhile I went to work and the barn, but the roast was unaffected- it came out juicy and fall-apart-tender. Plus, DH loved it! Next time, I'm going to try the tomato soup suggestion. Thanks again for posting this!"
"Absolutely fantastic! Moist, tender and ohhh so good! And let me add that the gravy was the best I have ever made no matter what meat I made it from. Don't miss this one, You will LOVE it!"
"I make my venison roasts this way too but alternate between using a can of tomato soup and the cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup. I like the tomato the best and my husband like the cream of mushroom best."
"fabulous flavor! Another venison recipe to keep! Do you have any for jerky?? Thanks! JustJan"
"When I saw this I thought "do I really want to try another mushroom soup, onion soup, venison that is great recipe???? Being lazy, what the heck, just do it. VAVOOM. This was great. Made the roast tender and no way you could tell if it was venison or beef. Now the venison roast I had was a pretty nice one but even the left overs were the real deal the next day. I had not even saved the recipe and had to dig my printed version out of the trash after tasting this one. I did not use as much water - half a soup can and the other half with half and half. Using the McCormick's seasoning is a big factor as well. So JustJan this was Just Great! Thx!"
"the easiest recipe ever. my husband is a big time hunter and a good cook (far better than me) he loved it. i will definitely make again."
"SOO EASY! and very good, i had some unexpected guests and they gobbled it up!"
"Delicious and easy to make. First try needed to add some water after 6 hours. It cooked hot and fast but that could just be my new slow cooker. Try it, you'll love it!"
"Excellent way to cook venison. I had a neck roast and the meat just fell off the bones. I left out the soup mix (didn't have it) and I too added sour cream. With the plan-a-heads (aka leftovers) I sauteed mushrooms and onions and added it to the gravy along with the meat and served it over rice and veggies on the side. Yummy! Thanks for sharing with us."
"Just Jan - Excellent, no fuss dish!! I made it as my 1st crockpot dish (had to break it in sometime) for my hubby! I added a little sour cream to the sauce at the end because hubby said it was a little salty for his taste - but I thought it was perfect! THANKS!"
