Venison Roast

2

My brother gave me a ton of frozen deer meat from last year’s hunting season. My husband found a recipe for venison stew in an issue of Outdoor Life. I modified it and used it for a venison roast. Though Matt ate it like a traditional roast with potatoes and carrots, I ate it like a stew because the broth was so tasty. The magazine recipe included portabello mushrooms, mustard greens, turnips, rutabaga, parsnips, tomatoes, and celery but Matt doesn’t like any of those things so I did not include them. I bet those mushrooms would have been really good.  I cooked this for about seven hours, changing the setting from high (three hours) to low (three hours) to high (one hour). However, I think you could cook the meat on low for up to eight hours and then add the other ingredients in for up to three hours on high. Check your potatoes and carrots to determine cooking time. I wanted to make sure that the potatoes and carrots weren’t crunchy but also not mushy. The broth is very spicy and a little rosemary goes a long way.

  • salt and black pepper
  • 3 Tbs. olive oil
