Venison Onion Soup Sandwich

French Onion Sandwich

Our Venison Onion Soup Sandwich is extremely easy to make and twice as delicious. It’s one of our simpler recipes. You literally cannot mess this one up.

People have used onion soup mix in so many different ways since the early 1940’s. It’s just a dehydrated soup, but when you mix it with other things, oh boy! It’s so good! The aroma fills the house and if you use a crock pot, which takes hours, you’re going to be hungry all day!

For this recipe, I like to use deer shoulder, the toughest parts of the deer hams, or any scrap pieces I have. The venison in the pot has been aged, so it’s not a bright red beautiful piece of meat, but trust me it’s amazing. If you’d like to learn more about aging venison, please check out our Aging Venison page under the Tips for Tasty Venison menu or click here.

This is the perfect meal for those long morning hunts that last until lunchtime. Get the crock pot going early that morning before you leave and eight hours later it’s ready. It’s so nice coming home for lunch and having a hot meal waiting for you.

Venison Onion Soup Sandwich


  • 4 lbs of venison (shoulder or the tough parts of the hams)
  • 2 packs Lipton Recipe Secrets Onion Soup & Dip Mix
  • 1/2 cup of water (covering meat 1/2 way up)
  • 12 Sara Lee - White Hamburger Bun


  1. Place the venison in a crock pot on high heat and sprinkle the onion soup mix over the meat.
  2. Add just enough water to cover the meat about half way and after cooking for an hour on high turn the heat to low and cook for an additional 7 hours.
  3. When done, mix well so that the meat breaks up and place about 3/4 cup on a bun.


Some like to toast the bun, but I like it plain. It's also good topped with coleslaw.

Some people like to toast the bun, but I like it plain. It’s also good topped with coleslaw -YUM!! I always make a big batch of french fries to go with it or chips. I have even been known to steal a bite or two straight from the pot. The leftovers, if you have any, are just as delicious, so this is great to take to lunch the next day and make your coworkers drool!

The good, the bad and the delicious…
