Your new favorite venison pot roast recipe is not only delicious, but it's simple and takes little time.
I love to cook but with my busy schedule, sometimes it's just easier to go out and grab a meal from the local restaurant. When I have a full day off but know I'm going to be busy, the crockpot is one of the best tools to a simple dinner. With a freezer full of venison, a venison pot roast can be a very simple and easy recipe that's also very delicious.
Below is a recipe that will not only save you time, but become one of your go to meals for cooking venison.
Venison Pot Roast
- Large Crock Pot
- Non-stick spray
- 6-8 hours to allow food to cook
- 3 lb of venison roast (I also like to use one large back strap cut into two halves, don't kill me.)
- 2 lb of small red potatoes cut into halves
- 1.5 lb of baby carrots
- 1 large white onion cut into 1/2 inch pieces
- 2 envelopes (1 box) of Lipton Beefy Onion Soup Mix
- 1 cup of water
- 4 cloves of garlic minced
- 1 can of diced tomatoes
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
Begin by spraying down your slow cooker to make for easy cleanup. Add to the bottom of your slow cooker 1 cup of water, the garlic and your chopped onion. Then place your venison on top of the onion bed.
On top of the venison, add both envelopes of the Lipton Beefy Onion Soup Mix, salt and pepper.
Finish by adding the carrots and potatoes on top.
Cover your crockpot and cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-6 hours, or until tender.
About halfway through, stir and add can of diced tomatoes.
If you would like a more gravy like mixture, which tends to make it more of a beef stew, you can remove the juices before serving, and place the juices on high in a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. Stir frequently while bringing to a boil. After boiling, let sit for approximately 10 minutes.
Add 1 teaspoon of flour or 2 teaspoons of cornstarch with a couple tablespoons of cold water. Stir until desired thickness. If your mixture does not thicken, add more flour or cornstarch a little bit at a time until desired thickness.
Place in a bowl and serve!
