Living with two avid hunters I always have plenty of venison in the freezer. I personally, do not care much for it, unless however it is cooked in a manner that I do not know what it is! I am not alone in this feeling. My children take my side. Venison tends to taste "wild" if you do not have a great recipe. This is a GREAT recipe! We did not tell the kids what it was until after they all had thirds!! They were shocked as was I. This was a very tasty and easy. We will make this many time in the future. Thanks so much! Now maybe I can clean out the freezer!

I followed this recipe,that was a mistake.Is it salty,wow!!.I should've read the reviews before making this.I agree with adding water with the soup ,I would also cut the onion soup mix in half at best.It could be a very good recipe,just make some changes to suit your taste.That is unless your able to take the top off a salt shaker and down the thing.

Delicious! I used a TBLS of minced garlic instead of garlic salt, added 1 1/2c of water, and cubed a couple potatoes, 2 carrots, and 2 celery stalks. For those that said this was too salty - use real garlic instead of the salt (or garlic powder) add a little water, and perhaps using low sodium soy sauce/cream of mushrooms soup would help a bunch as well. Turned out great for us and w/ my changes, we didn't find it salty! Good luck & happy cooking!

Because of the previous reviews that I read on this recipe. I added 3 potatoes and 1/2 cup of red wine to lower the salt. It tasted just like beef bourgignon!! If you don't like wine I would suggest to add the potatoes as they will absorb the salt. Hope that helps.

This was an excellent dish! I used a vension round roast. I combined a can of beef broth and about a cup of red wine. There was alot of liquid so I will cut down on the broth and wine next time. It did make wonderful gravy..I used 4 cloves of minced garlic, no extra salt, potatoes carrots and onion and alot of cracked black pepper. The roast was very tender and the dish was amazingly delicious! My husband and I agreed it was the best venison we have ever had!

This was amazing. Of course like others I made a couple small changes. I used 2 venison steaks and 2 tenderloins I had lying around. But I think this would work on any cut of meat. (Next weekend I am trying it with goose!) I boiled 1 cup of elbow macaroni in water w/ some beef bullion. I then added it to the crock-pot about 20 minutes before serving. In the future I will not use the garlic SALT and maybe throw in a cup of sour cream at the end. **** My trick to get the GAME out of Gamey meats. I soak the meat overnight in a FoodSaver vacuum sealed container with Milk! Work every time!

Awesome - and it smelled so good when I walked in the door! I agree, I could barely tell it was venison. Even my son - who does not want anything to do with mushrooms loved it! I made french fries to go with the gravy and he poured the gravy all over his fries and venison! I will definitely make this again. One change I would make - I would use reduced sodium soup and garlic powder instead of salt. The onion soup mix has enough salt in it and I don't feel you need to add more. I did use liquid aminos since I was out of soy sauce, but there isn't much difference in taste there anyway.

I made this with an elk roast, and it was wonderful! I browned the roast in oil and butter in the pan first, deglazed the pan with some red wine, and added that nice sauce to the crock pot as well. I also added some rosemary. I love how the soup makes its own gravy! This was super good!
