Crock-Pot Venison Roast with Onion Gravy is a simple, but delicious, venison roast cooked in a crock-pot until tender and then flooded with delicious brown onion gravy.

This crock-pot roast recipe is so easy, so delicious, so tender, and “so” anything else you can think of that you will fall in love with it. It’s my go-to roast recipe. I love to keep things simple and this recipe cannot get any simpler.

You can use any part of the deer that you want. I typically use the hams or shoulders. We age our venison so our venison is tender already but if you want it to be even more tender you can marinate it in some diet Sprite. Yep, Sprite! You can also use other sodas such as Coke or Dr. Pepper but for this particular recipe, I use Sprite.

Crock-Pot Venison Roast with Onion Gravy

Prep Time: 24 HoursServes: 8
Cook Time: 7 HoursServing Size: 1/8 of everything (about 1 cup of roast and a few Tbsps. of onion gravy)
Total Time: 31 HoursCalories Per Serving: 283

Ingredients

Roast:

  • 3 lbs venison
  • 1.5 cups of Diet Sprite (make sure the meat is covered)
  • 1/2 tsp. of salt
  • 1/2 tsp of black pepper

Gravy:

  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2.5 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1.5 cups beef broth
  • 1.5 Tbsps. milk

Instructions

  • Sprinkle venison with salt and black pepper and place it in a bowl or Ziploc bag and cover it with Sprite.
  • Let it soak for at least 24 hours.
  • Pour the contents of the bag/bowl into a crock-pot and cook on low for about 7 hours.
  • When it’s close to being done, start making the gravy.
  • In a frying pan on medium-high heat, melt the butter.
  • Add diced onion and salt and cook until softened, about 4-5 minutes.
  • Stir in the flour and cook for another minute.
  • Add the broth, stir well, and cook until thickened to your desire, between 3-10 minutes and then add the milk and remove from heat.
  • Remove the roast from the crock-pot, leaving the liquids in the crock-pot.
  • Place the venison roast in a large dish. Pull it apart using tongs or forks and then pour the onion gravy over the venison roast and serve.

Note: You might need to add more broth to help thin the onion gravy if it becomes too thick and if it’s too rich you can add more milk. Also, if you don’t want to pour the gravy over the venison all at once you can reserve it in a gravy bowl and use it as desired.

This is great served with mashed potatoes and a biscuit. I like to put a pile of mashed potatoes on my plate and then put a pile of venison roast with gravy on top of that and yes, I mean a pile!

To make this recipe more diet-friendly…

  • To help lower the cholesterol and fat use a healthier alternative to the butter and milk. If you use almond milk you won’t even notice a difference in the taste. On a side note, most of the cholesterol is coming from the venison but some say it will actually lower your cholesterol if eaten in moderation.
  • To help lower sodium use low sodium beef broth and omit some of the added table salt.
