"My father was an avid hunter and we always had a freezer full of wild meat, mostly venison and moose. My husband who is also was an avid hunter is not fond of the taste of venison. Because of this, I had to try and develop recipes to hide the wild taste of venison and this is one he thoroughly enjoyed. The drippings make great tasting gravy to drizzle over mashed potatoes which I serve this with. This recipe works well with roast beef, bison, elk, moose and lamb."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Season the roast with salt, fresh ground pepper and garlic powder.

Step 2

Bring the bacon grease to medium high heat in a Dutch oven or heavy bottomed pot and brown the roast on all sides; make sure you have a nice crust on the roast.

Step 3

Remove the roast and set aside.

Step 4

Add the onions to the pot and cook until translucent, scraping up the bits on the bottom of the pot.

Step 5

Pour in the beer and continue to cook until it is totally reduced and coating the onions.

Step 6

Return the roast to the pot and add the remaining ingredients except for the cornstarch; cover and place in a preheated 350 degree Fahrenheit oven and cook for 4 hours, checking every hour and adding water if needed to keep the juices halfway up the roast.

Step 7

Remove the roast from pot and cover with foil.

Step 8

Strain the juices into a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.

Step 9

Mix the cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of water and pour into the boiling juices to thicken.

Step 10

Shred the meat off the bones with two forks and serve with the gravy over mashed potatoes.

A-mazing! The combination of flavours is delightful! I did make a couple of wee changes. Used currants for the raisins and cooked it in the slow cooker for 5 hours. The beef blade turned out fall apart wonderful. I blitzed the gravy for a few seconds to puree it a wee bit and then thickened it. DH was in heaven! Thank you so much for this interesting recipe. I know it will be made again.

This was such a hit! I can't say enough about it. Delicious is right, it was perfect. The apples were ideal to add to it. I used a blade steak and made one adjustment. We are a gluten free family for the most part and I couldn't find gluten free beer so subbed port.
