All-Day Crock Pot Deer

all-day-long-crockpot-deerAll-Day Crock Pot Deer

This is one of those recipes that just happened because I needed to make something and could not make a trip to the grocery store. We were surprised at how good it actually was and it became a family favorite. I don’t mind because it is one of those dishes that you can throw together in the morning and it will be there ready to go for super. It also travels well to potlucks. A crock-pot can be used to cook this type of meal for a varied amount of time, depending on your schedule. It is not important that you take the meat and vegetables out at a specific amount of time. One or two hours either way usually makes no difference. In theory, you could use beef roast. I have never tried it though.


1/2 pound deer roast

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 cloves garlic; minced

1/2 package onion soup mix

2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon steak sauce

3 carrots; sliced

1 green bell pepper; chopped

1 yellow onion

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup tomato juice


Cut deer roast into serving-sized portions. Use more deer if you need more than 6 servings.  Slice onion and separate into rings. Dice the peeled carrots, and slice the peppers into thin strips or circles. Place these into bottom of crock-pot. Sprinkle the deer pieces with fresh ground black pepper, minced garlic and the onion soup mix. Place on top of the vegetables. Mix the steak sauce and Worcestershire sauce in a small bowl with about 1/2-cup water and 1/2 cup tomato juice. Pour this over the meat. Turn the crock-pot to high for 30 minutes, or, if you’re in a hurry, skip this step. Turn to low, cover and cook for 7-9 hours. * Keep the crock-pot covered as much as possible throughout cooking time.  When ready to serve, dip meat and vegetables out of pot with a slotted spoon. Use the liquid as is or turn crock-pot to high and thicken liquid with a little flour or cornstarch. Use the liquid as a gravy. Enjoy!!
