    This is a great recipe for venison. I am always looking for new ways to cook it.Definitely will make again! The only thing I did different was add some chopped garlic.I don't think it needed it. This is easy to put together in the morning and have a great meal for a chilly night. Thanks for sharing!

    My husband grew up eating venison in Michigan's upper peninsula. He LOVED this recipe and so do our friends! Delicious as is -- didn't change any ingredients. Definitely a keeper!

    I used beef instead. My husband told me about 3 times how good it was!

    We really like this recipe!!!! Will absolutely make it again & again. I did add some fresh cracked black pepper (a little). I'm sure this would work with beef or pork as well. Thanks for sharing!!

    We all really liked this recipe. The meat was tender and the flavor fantastic. Our only change was the addition of garlic.

    Great meal! I love the ease of the slow cooker. My girls couldn't get enough of the meat & there were no leftovers. I will make again.
