Wild Game Recipe: Italian Style Crockpot Pulled Venison

Brad Smith

If you are like most, pulled venison is great anytime. 

Hopefully, most of our freezers are full from a fresh harvest of venison over the last few months. Cooking up the same old recipes is good for a little while, but after everything starts tasting the same, you need to switch things up a bit. This is where an Italian style pulled venison recipe comes in.

To get this recipe started, all you really need is a few ingredients, a crockpot, and about eight hours of time. In this quick video that I put together, you can see for yourself just how easy it is.

To break these ingredients down a little more, here’s what you need.

Italian Style Crockpot Pulled Venison 

  • 1 whole venison roast – halved
  • 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • diced banana peppers
  • handful of pepperoncini’s

For everything else, combine all the ingredients on top of the roast and place in a slow cooker for eight hours. After the time is up, shred the venison and place it back in the pot and stir everything together.

Serve this over a bun with your favorite toppings, or as you saw in the video, some cole slaw.

Leftovers are great served over a baked potato. Enjoy!
