Venison in the slow cooker.....

Any ideas? I've looked on google but very limited. It's getting late so thought I might put it on for 8 hours from now, then re-heat for dinner. Not sure what to put with it though... ... .

Just treat it as you would any other casserole/stew being cooked in the crockpot. I cook venison a lot and this is all I do. People do get carried away with trying to add a lot of different seasonings i. e. red win, juniper berries etc but I never do. We eat venison 2 - 3 or even four times a week in our house and I never do anything different to it.

thanks everyone, what i did was follow all your directions kind of... . it was wild venison bred and shot on a farm. not sure what the cut was but put it in the slow cooker and took advice from you guys, it turned out very very yummy. i'm a vegeterian but my son loved it. thanks so much for all your help. (and if you ever want some free rangevenison at a good price let me know). thanks.

yes I would LOVE to purchase some venison, my daughter loves it! ! I asked her the other evening what she would like for dinner and the response "Something simple, umm venison" - had to laugh. She is 9.
