    My husband is a hunter so I am always looking for good venison recipes and this one is definately a keeper.Very tender, and the combination of spices, apple juice and beef broth gave it a very good flavor!

    Delicious! Used ww flour instead, sea salt, a truly feral wild boar neck roast, rendered boar lard in place of canola, cider, and water instead of broth. I honestly can't think of anything negative to say, it was delicious and easy to follow! The cider I feel is the better choice here; it gives this recipe a truly original flavor; you will look forward to pot roast night!! Try it!

    I don't usually care for venison but this recipe has totally changed my mind! My parents couldn't believe it was venison - and my mother has been cooking it for years! This recipe is a keeper for sure.
