Deer Roast

Deer roast; any size
Onions; cut in finger tip pieces
Bell peppers; cut like onions
Garlic pods; cut in half
Salt
Red pepper
Lemon juice
Water
1 tb Crisco
1 c Water


Cut small holes in deer meat with a sharp knife and insert pieces of onion, bell pepper and garlic approximately 2 inches apart. Mix equal parts salt and red pepper and insert in same holes with vegetables. Mix in equal portions lemon juice and water; marinate deer meat in this overnight, or longer. Cook meat in a heavy pot (Dutch oven) with lid. Melt Crisco in pot, pour in cup of water; place roast in this and start cooking. When it comes to a boil, put lid on pot; turn fire low. Cook approximately 4 to 6 hours on very low heat. Remove roast and if gravy is desired, thicken juices with cornstarch and water.


The secret of cooking deer is in the seasoning and the marinating and then the slow cooking over low heat.
