This easy deer pot roast recipe is the easiest roast you’ll ever make…hence the name. You’ll only need a few ingredients, a crock-pot, and some time.
I love the simplicity of this recipe. Not because I’m lazy, mind you, but because I like things as simple as possible. That’s why I created this recipe.
When I was working 12 hours a day, 7 days a week, this recipe was my favorite. I could cook dinner even though I wasn’t home.
I would get the roast ready at 5 in the morning and put it back in the fridge. Then after my youngest son got out of bed, he’d put it in the pot and turn it on and keep an eye on it for me.
By the time my husband came home from work it was done. All he had to do was add the mushroom soup and fix some instant potatoes.
When I finally came home dinner was already ready and most of the time the dishes were washed, too. All I had to do was eat and prop my aching feet up. Ain’t I a lucky girl to have such a helpful family!
This is good with just about anything, but I usually have mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, and rolls. Use the beefy mushroom soup that’s in the deer roast to as a gravy to top your mashed potatoes. Yummy!
Another good idea for the next day is to take the leftovers from the deer pot roast and drain most of the liquids off. Leave it wet but not soaked. Then break the meat up and heat it in the microwave. Place about 1/2 cup on a hamburger bun or a small hoagie bun. It’s so good!!!
The good, the bad and the delicious…
- Easy Deer Pot Roast is low in saturated fat and cholesterol.
- It is a little high in sodium, but not horrible.
