Slow Cooker Venison Pot Roast with Tomatoes

User Rating 5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


This venison pot roast is slow cooked to perfection with tomatoes, beef broth, and seasonings. It's a simple recipe, but the flavor is great.


  • venison pot roast, about 3 pounds
  • flour
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil or shortening
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cups beef broth, hot
  • 1 can tomatoes
  • 2 tsp. oregano
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste if needed


Sprinkle roast with salt and pepper; dust with flour. Brown the venison roast in a heavy skillet in heated oil or shortening. Add onion to skillet. Turn off the heat and add beef broth; transfer to slow cooker, scraping browned bits up. Add tomatoes to crockpot, along with the herbs and seasonings.

Cover and cook on LOW for 9 to 12 hours, until pot roast is tender.

Serves 6 to 8.

I've never eaten venison much less cooked it. I tried this recipe today and it was a total hit! I did inject the roast with salt water before cooking it. I also used diced tomatoes with oregano and garlic. I will definitely use this recipe again!
