Cooked Venison yesterday
Yesterday, I put 3 little venison roasts in the crock pot atop a layer of quarted new red potatoes and baby carrots. I added the usual packet of dry onion soup mix, can of cream of mushroom soup, a little water, a pinch of thyme and pepper. The meat was cooked through and very tender after four hours, as were the apples and carrots. I took the meat out and sliced it across the grain, as venison can be pretty stringy. It was tasty, but unexpectedly dry. I returned the meat to the crockpot and added a can of shrooms, a cube of frozen basil butter, and another can of mushroom soup.
We had biscuits and fresh asparagus with it, and all was delcious, but the meat still tasted dry and chewy, even with all that gravy. I've never had that happen before, and I was surprised, because the meat was from a young doe.
I am mystified...???
We get by with a little help from our friends
