Reviews forShredded Venison Sandwiches
"This was incredible! Used a venison shoulder roast, which didn't shred so we just sliced.Had to make a few tweaks because I eat paleo: used tomato sauce for the ketchup and coconut palm sugar for the brown sugar and coconut aminos for the soy. These changes still made for an amazing dish!"
"Super delicious but too peppery for my taste. I only used half of the pepper."
"Very good, my husband is a deer hunter so we used venison but it would also work well for pork. Sauce had a good flavor, meat was very tender!"
"I do not care for the game flavor & you cannot taste game in this recipe. It is a more savory than sweet BBQ sauce."
"This was wonderful! I borrowed a roast from my boyfriend's family to make this recipe, and it makes me wish I had a hunter in my family. Even if you aren't a venison fan, this recipe definitely makes it more than edible."
"We tried thie recipe and loved it!! It was so good we shared it with our friends who hunt. This is a keeper, and the bonus is that iti is so easy to put together."
"I've used this recipe numerous times and every time it turns out great! This is one of my favorite venison recipes. Even people who don't like deer ask me for the recipe."
