Venison Swiss Steak Mediterranean (Slow Cooker)

"This recipe was originally for beef round steak, but I've only used boneless venison steaks with it. If you prefer, you can thicken the sauce with cornstarch. The steaks become melt-in-your-mouth tender if you cook it on low and this is absolutely fabulous over mashed potatoes! From Company's Coming Slow Cooker Recipes."

    This was an easy and great tasting recipe. I love to be able to pop something in the crock pot and leave it. I had a 2 pound venison roast that I cut in to chunks and browned before putting in crock pot. I added about 1/2 cup chopped orange bell pepper, basil, and garlic powder to taste. I didn't have spaghetti sauce, but I did have a couple 8 oz jars of home canned seasoned tomato sauce. I ended up adding a can of tomato paste and an 8 oz jar of water. The mushrooms really kicked this up a notch for me. The oh so tender meat served over rice was an excellent dinner and even more tasty leftovers. Will be making again and again. Thanks for sharing

    This was so easy and turned out great.The venison was Super tender. I used a can of 4 cheese pasta sauce and followed the directions to the tee. We had our in laws for dinner that night and they all commented on how tender it was. Will make again for sure.<br/><br/>I'm so sorry I just checked the review and noticed only one star showed up. I wanted all five . Not sure how that happened. <br/><br/>I made this again today because we liked it so much. This time I added fresh basil, green peppers from my garden and garlic. Even better the second time around.


I'm a young (if I do say so myself!) mom to 3 boys, ages 4, 2 and 4 months (as of Jan 08), and my husband and I live on 19 acres outside of a small village called Douglas. I grew up in Ottawa, but always wanted to live in this area, having spent a lot of time around here at my parents' cottage. Most of my time is spent with my boys and taking care of our new old 100 year old farmhouse. I absolutely love cooking and trying new things, and I'm very much into natural healing and healing through diet.
