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

We're always on the search for easy 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 and a beef roast or pulled pork roast, well, we just had to try it with venison.

Without surprise, it turned out better than expected. In fact, it's probably one of the best variations of a pot roast recipe we've found.

You may be surprised by how simple the ingredients list is for this recipe.

Slow Cooker Dr. Pepper Venison Roast Recipe


  • 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 this yummy meal. 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 for one of the better dinner recipes you'll come across.

Finally, add in some salt and pepper and set the slow cooker to low. Let it cook for at least six hours. The exact cook time will vary depending on your equipment, but the longer it's heated the more tender it becomes. Just remember, it's called "slow cooking" for a reason.

If you can shred it easily with a fork, the slow cooker has done its job.

Remember, if you don't have a Crock Pot, Instant Pot or other slow cooker, a Dutch oven on low heat can serve the same purpose.

You won't believe how great this main dish tastes!
