A lot of people wonder how to cook deer meat. The simple answer is that just like any other meat, there are several ways. This deer roast recipe is a way to make a one pot meal out of your venison roast. It comes out of the crock pot very tender and flavorful. The red wine deer soak will take away the gamey taste and lends itself well to the flavor of the other ingredients. Click here to learn more about wild game meat soaking.

Crock Pot Venison Roast Instructions:
Clean your venison roast. Remove any bone or undesirable pieces of fat and gristle, buckshot that may still be in the meat… etc. Place venison roast in a sealable bag with wine, diced garlic, and olive oil. Make sure the entire roast is covered and wine and garlic is mixed well around the deer leg roast. Squeeze out all the air as you seal the bag. Place in the refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours. Move the bag around every few hours to move the wine and garlic mixture around the deer meat.
- Remove boneless venison roast from refrigerator and from bag and place on a clean cutting board or preparation surface. Fillet or cut meat so that you can lay it out flat and it will be 3/4 to 1-inch thick. The deer meat should fold out as you cut it into an almost rectangular shape, longer from right to left than from top to bottom. Top to bottom should not be too wide to fit in your crockpot.
- Sprinkle venison roast with Cavenders All Purpose Greek. Pour just enough Kitchen Bouquet Browning & Seasoning Sauce to cover both sides of the deer meat. Add just a few drops of Colgin All Natural Hickory Liquid Smoke as you rub everything into the deer meat. (easy on the liquid smoke, a little goes a long way) Set aside.
- You can ask your butcher to save some fat during their meat cutting. I usually ask them to peel the fat off of a whole ribeye, this gives the best flavor and will give you enough to wrap around the deer roast and have enough fat trimmings to lay a few pieces inside the roast. Lay the beef fat on the cutting board and trim as follows. If you use the ribeye fat, there will be one side that has a thick chunk of fat. You will need to trim this down so that it can roll around the venison roast easier. Save what you have trimmed and cut into pieces to roll up inside the deer leg roast. Set aside.
- Lay the venison roast out again, long side going left to right, and inside of deer meat up. Spread the green onions over the deer meat along with half the bell pepper and half of the celery. Lay a few pieces of the fat on top of the vegatables, just enough to flavor the deer meat and allow you to roll it. You can add a few pieces of bacon if you prefer, I use a little of both.
- Now, roll the venison roast up from left to right, making sure the vegetables, fat, and bacon roll up evenly through the inside of the deer leg roast.
- Wrap the remaining slices of bacon around the deer meat.
- Wrap the beef fat around the bacon wrapped venison roast. The beef fat should go all the way around with just an inch or so lying over the other end of the fat, trim any excess. Tie with a few pieces of butcher's twine so that the fat stays wrapped around the deer roast.
- Add water to the crock pot, and then set the wrapped and tied venison roast inside the crock pot. And add the rest of the vegetables around and on top of the deer roast.
- Sprinkle with salt and black pepper to taste and Cavenders All Purpose Greek Seasoning, and toss the vegetables to mix the seasoning into them. Cover and cook on low for 10 to 12 hours or on high for 6 to 8 hours.
- Turn off heat and carefully remove the wrapped and tied venison roast and place on plate or platter. Make a tent from aluminum foil and place over the deer roast. Let the cooked deer meat sit for about ten minutes.
- Carefully (don’t burn yourself) cut the twine and remove outer layer of fat and discard. Slice the venison roast thin. The slices should look like pinwheels. If the deer meat is so tender that it falls apart; as it likely will be, fear not, that's good too.
- Serve sliced venison roast alongside the vegetables from the crock pot and enjoy a wonderful wild game meal!
