A venison joint is rubbed with dark brown soft sugar, then placed in a slow cooker with apple juice, soy sauce and salt and slow cooked. The resulting roast is really tender.
Ask at your local butcher when the gaming season is in, around August to April.
Unusual combination of ingredients for stock made this recipe feel a bit risky but it paid off. Venison was very tender and gravy made from stock thickened really well and tasted lovely, will use again. - 20 Jul 2014
The combination of flavours work really well. - 05 Apr 2014
This is a very very easy and delicious recipe. The only change was that I used apple cider instead of juice and added one thinly sliced onion to the cooker. The gravy is incredible and pairing this meat with mashed potatoes was perfect. We had unexpected guests who also loved this dish. I was leary because I slow cooked a venison roast before and wasnt thrilled with the result. I will keep this recipe and use for both venison and beef. - 17 Aug 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
