Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

1/2 cup cider vinegar
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp salt
enough cold water to cover meat

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl that is just large enough to hold the roast covered with water.  Add the meat and soak overnight.  This is a good marinade for all game meats.

1 (approx. 4 lb) venison roast
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 large onion, sliced
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 can (15-oz) diced tomatoes

Remove roast from the marinade and discard marinade.  Season the meat by sprinkling with salt and pepper.  Pour just enough canola oil into a skillet large enough to hold the roast and heat over medium-high heat until hot enough to brown meat. Dredge the meat in the flour and brown in the hot skillet. Place the roast in the crockpot or slow cooker.  Add the garlic, onion, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, lemon juice, and tomatoes.  Place lid on cooker and cook on high for a couple of hours.  Turn heat to low and cook for another 8 to 10 hours.
