Easy Deer Pot Roast

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!

Easy Deer Pot Roast

Prep Time: 5 MinutesYield: 8 Servings
Cook Time: 6 HoursServing Size: 1/8
Total Time: 6 Hours and 5 MinutesCalories Per Serving: 316

Ingredients:

  • 3 lb deer roast–I prefer to use a deer ham.
  • 2 10.5 ounce cans of Beefy of Mushroom soup (I use Campbell’s brand)
  • 2 Tbsp. of olive oil
  • Dash of salt & black pepper

Instructions:

  1. Place a Slow Cooker liner in your crock-pot. Ain’t nobody got time to soak and scrub a pot for 20 minutes after dinner! I can think of better things to do.
  2. If you use a deer ham, it helps to soak the ham the day before in milk or buttermilk. Just rinse it off before putting it in the crock-pot.
  3. Place the deer roast in a crock-pot on low heat. Add the olive oil and make sure the entire piece of meat is covered with oil.
  4. Then sprinkle with salt and black pepper and rub it all over.
  5. Let it cook until it’s done, which will be about 5 hours. Make sure the internal temperature reaches at least 145° F. For medium done, the temperature should reach 160 ° F and for well done 170° F.
  6. Next, you should have some liquid in your crock-pot from cooking the deer roast. Take a spatula and remove the deer roast from the crock-pot and set it to the side. Pour the liquid from the crock-pot into a bowl.
  7. Now, add the deer roast back to the crock-pot and pour both cans of beefy mushroom soup over the deer roast and let it cook for another hour on low heat.

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!!!

To make this recipe more diet-friendly… 

  • To help lower the cholesterol, unfortunately, the only thing I can tell you to do is to eat less of the meat because that is where the majority of cholesterol is coming from.
  • To help lower the sodium use a salt alternative for the added salt in the recipe or leave it out and also use low sodium beefy mushroom soup and/or use one can instead of two. Using only one can will also help lower the fat. To also cut down on the fat you could use a crockpot liner and omit the olive oil.

    1. That’s not stupid. A lot of people are unaware of the many different ways to use deer meat. That’s why I started this website.
