Maple Hill Sweet Venison


  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 3, 4 or 5 pound venison roast
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 envelope onion soup mix
  • 2 tbsp. Yellow Dog Sweet Shake™
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup red wine


  • Melt butter in a Dutch oven and brown meat on all sides.
  • In small bowl , combine remaining ingredients and pour over meat.
  • Cover, bring to boil, reduce heat to simmer and cook 3 to 4 hours, or until meat is fork tender. Gravy can be thickened.
  • This is my favorite venison recipe and will work on deer, young or old, mountain or corn fed valley.
  • Enjoy!
  • Cooks note: If not enough sauce to do the meat, just make more. You can also use some of the tougher roasts with this recipe such as front shoulder etc.
