John chose this recipe as his favorite venison roast ever.


2- to 3-pound venison roast that has had all white membranes removed from it and been soaked in heavily-salted water, covered, refrigerated overnight and then rinsed well
5 to 6 potatoes, scrubbed and sliced into wedges
1 bag of baby carrots
2 medium onions, sliced in half
2 packages brown gravy mix
2 cups water


Spray your crockpot with cooking spray. Place venison roast in the crockpot, surrounded with potatoes wedges, onion halves and baby carrots. Mix together one of the brown gravy mixes with 1 cup cold water. Pour over roast and vegetables. Cover, and cook on LOW in crockpot for eight to 10 hours (total). (You may leave this next step off. Some roasts produce more liquid than others and you won’t need the extra gravy mix made.) An hour before serving, mix together remaining brown gravy mix and one cup cold water. Pour over roast and vegetables. Cover, and continue cooking for one hour. Yield: 12 servings
