This venison pot roast is slow-cooked to perfection with tomatoes, beef broth, and seasonings. It's a simple recipe, but the flavor is great.


  • 1 venison pot roast (about 3 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • Dash salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil or shortening

  • 2 cups beef broth (hot)
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Optional: salt and pepper (to taste)

Steps to Make It
