Piggy banking off of the neck roast topic, my wife bought one of these for me, we do quite a few roasts in the crock pot, but what are your favorite recipes for this. I've never used it but am kind of excited to try it out. I have a freezer full of venison, elk, pheasants, and turkeys. Let me hear how what you like/recipes/etc and doesn't just have to be venison.

I've got one ... but we haven't been really fancy with it. Great for making rice, veggies, taters pretty quickly.

I'm interested to see if others have ideas/recipes to try.

Lean cuts in a crock pot have never been my favorite. The meat tastes "wet" but not "juicy". Does that make sense? I started using a recipe called a Mississippi Pot Roast with lean venison roasts in my IP and it's really good. The typical recipe calls for spice mixes (bullion and Ranch dressing packets) that are too salty for me so I've adjusted mine accordingly. I've been using a mix similar to Montreal Steak and it does the trick. I also sear the roast first. Some recipes do, some don't .

There are many variations and you can customize it to your taste.

Best thing ever... My friend Jonah turned me onto it and I had to have one. Nothing like a killer meal made in less than an hour and it tastes the same as being cooked all day in the oven! So easy!

I do stew, roasts, chicken, at least two meals a week in the thing. Great addition to our kitchen.

Sorry, I don't have any recipes.. I use it like a crock pot, just toss in whatever looks good and roll with it.

Also any recipe using dried beans is great in the Instant Pot. This is one of my favorites and very fast in the Instant Pot

One other suggestion. Toss the instruction manual and don't overthink all the buttons. If one is close to what you're cooking just close the lid and push it. Really hard to mess things up.

They are amazing but if you really want to up your steak game get a Sous Vide.

Your steaks will NEVER be the same. Especially venison. You will look like a world class chef.

I'm with Lost Arra on using dried beans. I bought another brand of pressure cooker a few months ago and am having a blast with it. My wife asks me to make beans regularly even with the usual results, lol.

I can't keep up! I got a smoker coming so I can do ribs and sausage, thankfully didn't have to buy anything to do heart. Now you guys are talking Sous vide and instant pots, all I wanna do is play with venison all day!

I like to make venison roasts with some inion soup mix a water or a can of cream of mushroom soup with a can of water, depending on the roast size 45 to 55 min in the insta pot. I will use it for making venison shanks soon.

My wife made some beans the other day for super but she added The leftover bone and ham from a spiral sliced ham I brought home from work. Will be trying other things soon.

Butcherboy, that's one of my favorite meals. Add some cornbread sticks to that and you have a world class meal !

drycreek, Making my cornbread tonight. Maybe I will make green chili cornbread. It’s a NM thing to add green chili to everything. It’s just not a meal without some green or Red chili with it. LOL

You guys and our first little bit of cool weather inspired me. Pinto beans in the pressure cooker with onions, celery, salt pork, smoked venison & pork sausage, garlic, cilantro, green chiles, cayenne, cumin, pepper and just a splash of apple cider vinegar all covered in vegetable broth. Probably 20 minutes prep time and I pressure cooked for 1.5 hrs. Not bad for starting off with dry beans.
