It is that time of the year where all of us outdoorsmen are stuck between hunting and fishing season.  The snow is flying, and we are trapped inside watching outdoor shows and dreaming about the woods.  This time of the year might go by slow, but you can break it up a little with the best crock pot venison recipe on the internet.   Now, I love getting deer sticks, jerky, and sausage made from the locker, but I love keeping my own backstraps to cook in the crock pot.  This venison recipe saves me money, time, and serves a lot of people!  Oh, and it tastes great!

  • Peanut oil (1/3 cup)
  • Dry garlic (2 teaspoons)
  • Ginger (1/2 teaspoon)
  • Brown sugar (1 cup)
  • Apple cider vinegar (5 tablespoons)
  • Ketchup (4 tablespoons)
  • Soy sauce (2/3 cup)
  • Water (1 cup)
The Venison

This recipe calls for 1 deer backstrap.  Prepare the venison backstrap by cutting it into bite size pieces.


The Grand Finale

Place all ingredients and venison back strap into a large crock pot and stir for 2 minutes.  For best results, let marinate over night.

Cook on low for 8 hours.

Note – I recommended serving with a cheesy white rice.

I hope you enjoy the best crock pot venison recipe on the internet!  This recipe is easy and allows you to watch more of your hunting shows during this slow time of year.
