  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add sugar; let stand for 5 minutes. Beat in butter, milk powder, egg, salt and enough all-purpose flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 4-6 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 40 minutes.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 12 pieces. Shape into 2-1/2-in. circles. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 20-25 minutes.
  4. Beat egg white and cold water; brush over dough. Combine rye flour, coarse salt and caraway seeds; sprinkle over rolls. Bake at 425° for 9-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks.
  5. Place the venison roast in a Dutch oven. In a small bowl, combine the water, ketchup, soup mix, horseradish and seasonings; pour over roast. Cover and bake at 325° for 2-3 hours or until meat is tender, turning once.
  6. Remove roast; let stand for 10 minutes. Shred meat with two forks; keep warm. Combine cornstarch and cold water until smooth; stir into pan drippings until blended. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Return meat to the pan; heat through. Split rolls. Serve meat and gravy on rolls. Yield: 12 sandwiches.

"Good change using a roast Although I did the roast in the crock pot on low for 8-10 hours. Will defiantly make this again."
