I never had luck with deer steak until I started cooking it just like roast in the crockpot and I was able to get it real tender and to the point you couldn't tell it was venison.

Thanks FORWARDSTEP for the ideas on venison. I have two big packages of steaks in the frezer and didn't know what to do with it. I have listened to my mother in laws instructions on coking it, but it always turns out tough. I am going to give your a try this weekend!

I've been cooking venison for over 30 years and I still can't be consistant in the results. I think some mule deer is the toughest or maybe antelope. I won't eat antelope it is nasty tasting. Out here in the west the deer don't get too fat. Arizona Coues deer is pretty good for flavor but tough too. That is the only white tail I have had. I found cooking the chops and steaks on high heat for short amount of time and leaving them just a little bit pink and serving them fast works best. My husband isn't a fan of tomato sauce but I like to sear the meat on high then smother it in onions and garlic pour maranari sauce over it and simmer it on the stove top for about 2 hours (depending on how thick the steak is). You can cut it with a fork. Mushroom soup works too but add a little water or white wine.

I love the sound of these. My husband also is a hunter so this will be a good change up. Does anyone know if you can do anything with the venison steaks and a crockpot?? I don't know if I overcook or what, but they are always so tough.
Thanks

The crock pot is a perfect place for venison! Here is a simple recipe I use. It uses beer so most men like it. My husband does not drink any alcohol but he likes the gravy from this concoction. I use Fosters but you can use any full flavor beer you like. Black and Tan works well too. You need a package of Lipton Onion Soup Mix. I always rinse the roast after it thaws to make sure it is clean and all the blood is rinsed off. Dry it with a paper towel the brown the roast in a black iron skillet if you have one or brown in a little canola oil to seal in all the juices. Place in crock pot, pour in your beer (at least 16 oz.) and sprinkle the soup mix over top. Cook on high for about 6 hours max. You have to adjust this to your taste. I like mine well done and will continue to cook it on low if we are not ready to eat after 6 hours. Then you can add whatever veggies you like or use the meat for other recipes. Makes for wonderful chile. I have found venison picks up flavor from whatever you add to it so be cautious adding garlic and onion. Enjoy. Let me know if you try it. I use this for deer and elk.

Hi I just subscribed to this message board b/c I saw a plea for venison recipes. My husband loves venison but I'm not a huge fan of the taste of it. But here is my fav recipe that makes it taste almost like beef stew,

Backcountry Venision Stew
8 servings

2lbs. venison cut in 1-in cubes
4TBSP bacon drippings (I never do that or use bacon bits)
Water
1tsp. garlic salt (I use a lot, I like garlic)
1 tsp. worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
3/4 cup chopped onion
4 medium potatoes, cubed
6 med carrots, sliced
1 green pepper, chopped
2 cups sliced celery
3 TSCP flour
1/4 cup cold water

Brown venision cubes in hot bacon drippings in heavy Dutch over (or just put the venison in the Crock pot). Add water to cover, seasonings, and onion. Cover and simmer about 2 HRS. Add potatoes, carrots, pepper and celery and cook about 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Taste and add more seasonings if desired. Dissolve flour in 1/4 cup cold water and stir into stew. Cook about 5 minutes and serve hot.

I was wondering if anyone has any crock pot recipes for venison. My husband is a hunter and got a deer last weekend. He says put the roast in the crock pot. Like I know what else do to it. Any venison fans feel free to reply.
