Crock Pot Venison Barbecue

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


This is a venison version of a pulled pork barbecue, made with a tomato soup based barbecue sauce. Feel free to replace the tomato soup and spices with 2 cups of your favorite barbecue sauce.. 


  • 3 lbs. boneless venison, cut in 1-inch cubes
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons instant beef bouillon or equivalent base
  • 1 (10 3/4 oz.) can tomato soup
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1 tsp. thyme
  • 1 tbsp. paprika
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • Buns


Trim excess fat from the meat and place in  slow cooker crockery insert. Add onion, green pepper and 1 cup water, along with the beef bouillon.

Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours, until meat is well done and shreds easily with a fork.

Pour liquids into a saucepan and boil until reduced to about 1/2 cup.

Add the reduced liquid back to the slow cooker along with the remaining ingredients; stir to mix. Cover and cook on LOW for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Meat should be pretty well shredded by the end of the cooking time.

Spoon over toasted bun halves to serve.

Great Simple Recipe, Member Vehorn

I make this recipe time and time again, and it's consistently a hit everywhere I've taken it. I've done it for tailgates, New Years Parties, etc. I tend to go a little heavy on the brown sugar (adding an extra tablespoon) , and when I put in the spices and tomato soup, I drizzle a little molasses in the pot, it makes for a sweeter barbecue. Try serving it on potato rolls instead of buns with cole slaw for a great finger food.
