We’re all for simple cooking but this slow cooker recipe is just ridiculous. 

We’re always on the search for easy venison recipes that taste like you spent all day in the kitchen. When we stumbled upon a variation of this slow cooker recipe involving Dr. Pepper, well, we just had to try it with venison. Without surprise, it turned out better than expected. You may be surprised by how simple the ingredients list is for this recipe.

Slow Cooker Dr. Pepper Venison Roast


  • 1 whole venison roast
  • 1 can of Dr. Pepper
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Carrots and celery for taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Yeah, that’s really all there is to it. Those five ingredients for this slow cooker recipe are really all you need. If you wanted to cut out the celery and carrots, you could. We just tossed them in there for a little something extra to scoop up into our mashed potatoes.

To get this recipe started, just pour a can of Dr. Pepper over the venison roast in your slow cooker, covering just about half of the roast. If one can doesn’t do it, just add in some water. Otherwise, the one can is all you need. Finally, add in some salt and pepper and set the slow cooker to low. Let it cook for at least six to eight hours.

You won’t believe how great this dish tastes!
