Root Beer BBQ Pulled Venison


  • 1 large thawed venison roast
  • 1 packet beefy onion soup mix
  • 1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce
  • 1 whole diced onion
  • 1 bottle of root beer
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch

To get this recipe started, just simply combine all of the above ingredients, except for the corn starch, in a large crock pot, stir it all up, and cook on low for six to seven hours. That's about it.

When it is done, shred the venison with a couple forks and place it back in the sauce. Finally, stir in the corn starch, cook for just a few minutes longer with the lid on, and serve on buns.

Good luck not eating it all in one sitting!
