Sweet and Sour Crockpot Venison Roast

The toughest part of cooking crockpot venison for me is usually just remembering to get the venison out of the freezer in time to thaw before I want to cook it. Many awesome crockpot venison recipes only require a few basic ingredients and 20 minutes or less to prep. It works great for getting everything set and turn on the crockpot before going to sleep for the night. Then the next morning before heading out to work, it’s all cooked and ready to toss in the refrigerator for dinner that night or the next several nights.
