Weekdays can often leave people running around trying to juggle home life and work life. Healthy and nutritious meals may feel out of reach. There may be temptations to resort to take out or meals that sabotage health and fitness goals. However, there are quick, easy, and healthier options to explore. When life gets busy, I have a few low-hassle wild game recipes in my back pocket. One of my favorites is my “Soup Mix Savory Venison Roast.”
Quick, Easy And Healthy Meals
- 1 large venison roast (any roast will do)
- 1 package Lipton Beefy Onion Soup Mix
- 1 cup low sodium or no sodium beef broth
- Onion powder (optional add)
- Garlic powder (optional add)
Line your crock pot with a Reynolds slow cooker liner. This makes even your clean up a breeze.
Place venison roast in the center of your crock pot, and pour 1 cup beef broth into the crock pot.
Sprinkle the roast with onion powder and garlic powder for added flavor. Sprinkle packet of beefy onion soup mix over the roast, enough to coat the roast, and pour the rest of the soup mix into the broth. Stir with a spoon.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours until the roast is pull-apart tender. Cooking time will vary depending on the slow cooker.
Shred the roast and return the meat to the broth. Turn the slow cooker to warm and let the meat soak for thirty minutes to an hour to soak up more flavor and moisture. (Optional)
Line your crock pot for easy cleanup!
Shred roast before returning to soak in the juices.
Soaking the meat after shredding the roast really takes the dish to the next level!
This venison roast always turns out flavorful and juicy. Soaking the meat after shredding the roast really takes the dish to the next level.
On weeknights when time is of the essence, pair the roast with hassle free side dishes like microwave rice packets and veggies. Cauliflower rice is one of my go-tos because it is low carb and versatile. Top the rice with the juice from the crock pot to add that beefy onion goodness flavor.
When I have a little more time on my hands, I serve the roast with healthy complex carbs like baked sweet potato or roasted butternut squash and a roasted or steamed vegetable like green beans, broccoli, or carrots.
For the bread lovers of America, this meat is also outstanding for au jus sandwich.
The possibilities with this recipe are endless, and the best part is the effort is minimal. Enjoy lovelies and remember to give yourself grace during those “crazy weeks”!
