One of the best things to have in your RV is a crock pot, especially in the winter – not only does it save on doing dishes, but it also creates warm comfort food that is perfect for a cold winter day in the RV. And, it makes the whole RV smell great.

When you pack up your RV from Leisure Time RV, be sure to add a crock pot and the spices needed for the recipes below.

Roasted Venison

  • 3 slices slab bacon
  • Buttermilk
  • Venison Roast – about 1 pound per person
  • 1 medium potato per person cut into quarters
  • 1 large carrot per person cut into quarters
  • 2 medium onions, quartered
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Sage
  • Thyme
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Liquid smoke (optional)
  • Cornstarch

Soak the roast in buttermilk while you are cooking the bacon. Cut the bacon strips into quarters. Fry them in the crock pot until translucent at 350 degrees Fahrenheit – about 10 to 15 minutes. Move them to the side, then add the venison roast. You don’t need to rinse the buttermilk off, but drain as much off as possible. Discard the buttermilk.

Brown the outside of the roast – about 15 minutes on each side. Add about 4 inches of water to the crock pot. Cover and turn the heat down to 285 degrees. Roast the venison for 2 to 4 hours depending on the thickness. You want it about an hour and a half from being able to pull the meat apart with a fork.

Add the vegetables and the seasoning. Cover and roast for 1.5 to 2 hours.

Remove everything except the broth. Turn the crock pot up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Alternatively, you can do this part in a sauce pan. Mix 2 tablespoons cornstarch and 2 tablespoons cold water together. Add it to the hot broth and stir until the broth thickens. If it’s not thick enough for you after about 5 minutes, add a bit more cornstarch and water mixture.


You can substitute beef in this recipe, but don’t soak it in buttermilk. Use salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and Badia’s Redfish seasoning instead.

To substitute wild turkey, soak the turkey in buttermilk. Change the seasonings to salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, poultry seasoning and just a dash of Badia’s Redfish seasoning.

For farm-raised turkey or chicken, use the same seasonings as wild turkey, but don’t soak it in buttermilk.
