A friend of mine gave me a venison roast this morning and I'm wandering if I need to do anything special while cooking it do to the low fat content?Hmm I'm thinking of uusing either my cast iron dutch oven or slow cooker.

Whooo...great gift. I'm assuming it is a large piece of meat. I think you are on the right track. Low and slow in either pot or cut it up into 3/4" squares and make a stew. Another idea is to grind it up and make chili. You could grind and mix it up with some pork for added fat.

There are some really good recipe ideas around the inter-web.

We are the enablers around here. You can do it CC.

Another idea is to smoke it.

Despite my forum name (don't hunt anymore), I have not had venison in a couple years. Love it. I would do a slow roast or stew as well.
I wasn't in to 'Smokin' back when I hunted but I think that would dry it out.

I've found that any meat is worth marinading for a few hours. And then, smoke it; it gives it the right amount of grrrr to an already flavorful piece of meat.

Guess, I should be clear -- maybe just do a slow cook, and add some smoke wood chunks.

And yeah, I'm with Aaron; if you want to pass it along! Hambre

It's low fat as you know.

I've done them in a braise with a cream sauce/gravy.

Other than that, you could "lard" the roast to give it some moistness (maybe find a butcher who has a larding needle or buy one yourself). Otherwise, it must be done rare otherwise it will be dry and like shoe leather.

My father used to use a big piece of bacon or other fat cap on top and then roast it in tinfoil with cream of mushroom soup as a cooking sauce. The fat renders down into the meat, and the sauce is partially absorbed and tenderizes it too. Yum.

Or he'd slice it thin and fry it in bacon grease as a breakfast meat.

The bacon is a great idea. Thumbup I was going to use a couple of cans of cream of shroom as well as a packet of Lipton onion soup mix. Hambre
