Thanks, Judy...can't wait to try this. Sheller, let us all know if it works with venison, too.

RE: BUTTER ROAST.




Usually when I cook a pot roast, I add onions, carrots & potatoes....do you think this would work with this recipe, or should I just stick to the plain roast? I'm definitely going to make this as soon as I buy the ingredients. But the first time, I'm just making it the way the original recipe says...just meat, no veggies!!


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




Sheller, even though Pennsylvania sells more than 900,000 hunting licenses per year, I can't find venison for sale anywhere. How do you get yours?


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




I'm set up to start this in the morning. I'm doing it like I always do...carrots, onions, and little potatos. Will let y'all know how it comes out. smiley


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




Four questions... smiley

One: Salted or unsalted butter?

We used salted because that's all we buy.

Two: I have a couple of cans of liquid Au Jus from Campbell's in the cupboard. Who makes it in a dry mix?

No liquid. It boils the meat instead of roasting it!!

Three: Are the peppers "pepperoncini" peppers? If not, what do pepperoni peppers look like?

Yeah whatever. Whatever those peppers are. I hate them, so I don't care. Stick 'em in.

Four: I'm the "King Of Crock-Potting" and this sounds marvelous! Is a two-pound chuck roast large enough?


Big Roast Good. Small Roast bad. That's all I know. I got this recipe off the internet and another chat board I frequent with LOTS of NON- cooks...

And, if you are feeding a crowd, as most of us must at one point or another, this is the bomb. Banana

Just google for 'venison sale pa', Ed.


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




It worked great with chicken breasts, carrots and carmelized onions. The au jus gave the chicken great flavor.


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




Having lived in PA until I moved here, it was illegal to sell venison from what I remember. Hubby hunted so we were never without. We still get supplied from friends.
I'm looking foreward to trying the recipe with venison. I plan on adding veggies anbd potato's as well.

I appreciate the advice, Beachmark!
Unfortunately, the only outlets within a hundred miles of my area only offer exotic European Red Deer, and not indigenous whitetail venison. I'll keep searching though. Thumbs up

Why....... I get it out of my freezer. Wink smiley
My son usually gets me a nice donation of venison. He is a hunter and I was the one who taught him all he knows. But that was many years ago and I no longer hunt.
I come from a hunting family. There are many such families in WV.

Ah, I see; I never caught on to the distinction....but then again, I don't eat venison and don't hunt.

It's illegal to sell venison that is not farm-raised in PA. I don't know if it is PA Game commission regulated or what. So unless you know someone that hunts you are SOL.



RE: BUTTER ROAST.




This really sounds good, I might give it a try this weekend or next.

...sounds like stroke in a pot to me.... Sad smiley ....

That's why you eat veggies only the day before and turkey or chicken the day after. Everything in moderation. I just put the ingredients on my grocery list. I'm using salted butter.

Nah...fat won't kill you. It's wheat and sugar (white carbs) that will kill you. We didn't use noodles or taters. We used mashed cauliflower.

We added carrots, green beans and onions at the last hour. YUMMAY!

And for those who don't think this is OBX related...please think about all the threads that ask, "What do you cook on vacation?" and here is one simple, delicious, can't mess up recipe for big crowds.

Judy thanks for testing it out!

I used the wrong cut of roast - I used 'spensive' stuff and though it is still delicious, I think a cheaper cut of meat would have been BETTER.

I went with total cost for the experiment, though, and bought a more-per-pound-butcheaper-total roast.


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




c'mon folks, we are salivating here






RE: BUTTER ROAST.




I tried to find a packet of the dry aus jus but my regular store didn't have any Sad smiley. I do have a packet of the hidden valley ranch, so as soon as I can round up some aus jus I'll be in business.

Definitely looks like a perfect recipe for the beach - no fuss, super easy and delicious. Can't wait to give it a try.


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




^^i found the au jus packet in the baking aisle next to the spices, and where they have all those other dry gravy, Hollandaise, etc dry packets


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




I'm pretty sure dry brown gravy would work just as well? what do you think Judy?


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




Thanks JudyK and Home Sweet Home - The store that I went to didn't have the au jus in the spice aisle. That's actually where I found the Hidden Valley.

The closest they had was a packet for brown gravy or a packet of pot roast seasoning. I figured I'd hold out for the au jus the first time I make it. I'm going to a different store tomorrow and I'll see if they have it there. If they don't, I might try one of the packets (brown gravy?) that I did find and hope for the best.


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




my local grocer stocks the salad dressing packets alongside the bottled salad dressings, but i found the other packet in the spices aisle.
i don't know why a brown gravy mix or something similar would differ all that much from the au jus when used in this manner.

i am generally not much of a packet user, but i can't believe that there would be much of a difference herein.

go wwith your gut. some substitutions make complete sense! Thumbs up


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




I made this today, and yes it was VERY good. I couldnt find Au Jus packets either, so I called my mother for advice. (never too old to call Mom :b) She told me to use 1 cup of beef broth ( packet mixes usually yield one cup of liquids I guess) with just a dash of either dried onions, or onion powder. It turned out great and the kids loved it. A keeper for sure!


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




Made this yesterday - used a mix of mushroom varieties instead of the peppers. Very tasty, although I think we'll cut back on the butter next time and go half olive oil... Thumbs up
