Mississippi Venison Pot Roast Recipe



  • 3 pounds of venison roast
  • 1.5 cups of Diet Sprite
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper


  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2.5 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1.5 cups of beef broth
  • 1.5 tablespoons of milk

Getting It Done:

  1. Sprinkle venison with salt and black pepper and place it in a Ziploc bag.
  2. Fill the bag with Sprite. Squeeze the air from the bag and seal it.
  3. Let it soak for at least 24 hours.
  4. Pour the contents of the bag into a crock-pot and cook on low for about 7 hours.
  5. When the venison is close to being done, start making the gravy.
  6. In a frying pan on medium-high heat, melt the butter.
  7. Add diced onion and salt and cook until softened, about 4-5 minutes.
  8. Stir in the flour and cook for another minute.
  9. Add the broth, stir well, and cook until thickened to your desire. This should take between 3-10 minutes. Then add milk and remove from heat.
  10. Remove the roast from the crock-pot, leaving the liquids in the crock-pot.
  11. Place the venison roast in a large dish. Pull it apart using tongs or forks.
  12. Pour the onion gravy over the venison roast or in a gravy bowl and serve.

You might need to add more broth to help thin the onion gravy if it becomes too thick. If it is too rich, you can add more milk.

For the roast, you can use any cut of venison that you prefer. If you don't have venison, that's ok. You can make this recipe using beef instead.

Store leftovers in a freezer-safe container or bag and serve later. Freeze the venison without the gravy. To thaw, remove the container from the freezer and place it in the refrigerator to defrost naturally. Then make fresh gravy and heat the roast in a pot or the microwave when ready to serve.
