2-3 pounds venison roast
3 cups water
1 small onion (quartered)
1 tablespoon onstant coffee granules
1/2 cup apple cider or apple juiced
3 toes of garlic (peeled and crushed)
3 carrots (chunks)
4 stalks celery (chunks)
3 medium potatoes (chunks)
Add roast, water, onion, instant coffee granules, apple cider (or juice) and garlic to a slow cooker.
Cover and cook on medium heat for 2 hours.
Add chunks of carrots, celery, and potatoes to pot.
Cover and cook on medium heat for additional 2 1/2 - 3 hours depending on roast size.
(total cooking time approx. 4 1/2- 5 hours)
Remove roast and vegetables from pot.
Thicken pan liquid with corn starch if gravy is desired.
Slice roast, salt and pepper to taste and serve with vegetables.
Serves 3-4 people.
Note: The instant coffee serves to tenderize even tough cuts of meat, and roasts come out mild and tender! This REALLY works great on tough cuts like shoulder roasts.
