My dad brings home venison each year, and my mom never knew how to cook it. When I was 16, I threw some venison and a few spices and sauces into the slow cooker before heading off to school. We were all surprised that it turned out great! I've perfected the recipe since then.

This recipe is a keeper. I am not a big venison eater, but my kids and husband are. I even ate this meal. It was tender and tasted great. It tasted like barbaqued spare ribs!!! I will keep this recipe on hand and use it again. I did not find just a chile-garlic sauce, so I used Cholula chile-garlic sauce. The sauce and the meat had a zing to it. I did not cook the onion and garlic before hand. I put everything in the crock pot and it sat overnight in the fridge. I cooked it on low all day. I then made some rice and served the meat and sauce over the rice. It was a very tasty meal. Read More

The favors are STRONG! This is a good recipe if you need to cover the taste of venison that wasn't properly cared for in the field or is getting old. Read More

I have been eating and cooking venison my whole life. This is my favorite preparation! I swapped a tablespoon of Worchestershire for the liquid smoke added a julienned green pepper toward the end of cooking time and served it over rice. I will make this again and again. Read More

Great! I cut out the liquid smoke (not a fan) but it turned out fantastic. The meat fell apart as I was taking it out of the crock pot. I used the leftovers for pulled venison tacos and it was fab! Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

Very good recipe. I replaced the liquid smoke with more Worchestershire sauce. Also I cooked the roast on low for almost 5 hours and it was a little overdone. I will check the roast temp more closely next time and will probably stop closer to 4 hours. I'm not a big venison lover but my husband is. This recipe made vension very enjoyable for me and my husband loved it. Thanks. Read More

We LOVE this recipe but chose to use 1 or 2 TB of green jalapeno tabasco instead of the chili sauce. WONDERFUL! Read More

Excellent and easy recipe. If you enjoy spicy foods, this has just the right amount of heat (it won't burn you). If you can't do spice, just back off of the chile-garlic (sriracha is what I used.) I highly recommend. Read More

I am a vegetarian but my husband is a hunter. I made this recipe and he was salivating. I could not find Chile-garlic so I purchased the Chile sauce and added crushed garlic. Thank you so very much for this recipe will be making again! Read More
