Dr. Pepper Venison Roast {Slow Cooker}

Our son got his very first deer this year. So I've been finding all kinds of recipes for venison.  One recipe I have seen all over the internet for beef roast is one with Dr. Pepper soda.  So I thought we could just throw a venison roast and soda in the slow cooker.  YUM!


Dr. Pepper Venison Roast

4-5 pound venison roast
1 (8 ounce) Dr. Pepper Soda
2 garlic cloves minced
1 onion finely chopped

Add all the ingredients to the slow cooker.  Cook on low 6-7 hours.  Shred and serve with mashed potatoes.  The sauce makes a wonderful gravy.

 You can also use this over bread.  Anyway you serve it is delicious!!

The next recipe we are going to try is Swedish Meatballs.  Enjoy your day!

Hi Jen,

I just wanted to stop by and thank you for choosing to follow my blog.
I am enjoying my visit to yours. This Dr. Pepper Venison Roast recipe is also excellent when a spicy can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce is added. We love to shred the meat (may also use pork roast) and serve it in a corn tortilla topped with homemade pico de gallo. Although many find this is a little spicy - it is delish!
I pray you and your family enjoy a blessed Christmas,
Mrs.B

Just wondering if this recipe got rid of any gamey flavor?

Tracie~ Yes it did get rid of the gamey flavor. Also with venison I often add a small amount of vinegar to the meat. It helps get rid of the gamey flavor.

Hi. Is there any reason that Diet Dr. Pepper couldn't be used? I don't think that slow cookers generally caramelize meat, or give it that crispy top layer, so I thought a sugar free option might work? Any thoughts on that?
