Deer roast almost never turns out good for me - its just too lean. I use the roast to cut up and make jerky out of. Can't go wrong with that!

That's a thought. I would like to try making a roast at least once. If it doesn't turn out very good, I will use my other roast for jerky.

all my roast (beef or wild game) are done by sprinkling powdered onion soup mix on the roast, add a little water and slow cook in the crock pot till meat is 170 in the middle. Use a meat thermometer to monitor inside temp and when it hits 170, kill the heat and you might have a better roast than some of mine in the past that i believe were just cooked too long. Dry in the center.
The onion soup mix gives it a good flavor and the juice in the bottom can be used to make some awsome brown gravy - if you know how to make gravy.

I can make gravy and that sounds like a good recipe to try. Thanks bud.

Well with a deer roast i use more than with beef cause a beef roast will produce alot of juice on its own. So with that said, maybe fill to about 1/4 or 1/3 up the roast...if it needs more added later you can do that too. Just don't let it go dry. In the end you want enough juice to make the gravy.

1/2 cup water with a deer roast unless the deer was a fatty. With a beef roast use 1/3 cup water.

The bigger ( pounds) the roast the more water you need. But usually the above is correct up to a 5 pound roast.


Now you have to add taters, carrots, and onions to the crock pot as well.

I've always had the same problem as chenry. Always done it in the crock pot and it always seems dry.
