Slow Cooker Shredded Venison for Tacos


I use a venison roast with taco seasonings to make shredded venison tacos. It's a great alternative to beef and my family just loves them. Serve with the taco shells, lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese, taco sauce and anything else you like on your tacos.

6 to 8 servings


  • 1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning mix

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • 3 pounds venison roast

  • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper, or to taste

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 ½ cups water


  1. Mix half the taco seasoning with the flour and cayenne pepper to taste and coat the meat with this mixture. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Place the roast in the oil and brown well on all sides.

  2. Place the meat in a slow cooker with the water and cook on low setting for 8 hours or on high setting for 5 hours. When meat is done, shred with a fork and season to your taste.
