Deer Neck Roast



Never cooked the neck but since I will be by myself this weekend I decided to cook it. I'm sure someone will show up to eat but the family is traveling and they wouldn't touch it.

I'm thinking just down in a gravy in the oven.

Any suggestions? Mushrooms, potatoes, carrots, onions etc...or leave out potatoes and serve over rice or mashed potatoes? With some red wine?

Give me some help.

Good. How does the meat come out? Pull off the bone?

re: Deer Neck Roast


yep, pretty tender.. fwiw, i also remember adding some mustard to shoulder and neck roasts..
just put on your cut offs, jock, shoulder pads, and your "cheap LSU jersey", and get with it...

re: Deer Neck Roast


Sounds like you have the right plan. I've done pretty much what you described, except brown the outside then cook in the crock pot. Fall apart tender. It is really good meat, but since I shoot anything not destined for the wall in the neck, I don't get many neck roasts. With your kitchen skills, you are going to enjoy the outcome. And my teenage boys scarf it up, so if you need help eating it, I will be glad to send them over.

I did one a month ago. Braise it with red wine and veal stock on low overnight in the oven. Fell off the bone after about 12 hours cooking.

Black Iron Deer Roast

Get the biggest Black Iron you have.

Marinate Roast in overnight in your favorite seasoning.

Inject Roast with favorite seasoning. I like Cajun Garlic.

Stuff Roast with garlic cloves and onion slivers.
Sprinkle good amount of Tony's all over the Roast.
Brown Deer Roast on Each side for 20-25 minutes (Total of 45 minutes).

Sprinkle 1 pack of Lipton (or other brand) onion soup mix on top.
Shake on about 2-3 tablespoons of Worcestershire Sauce on top.
Fill Black Iron Pot with Chicken Stock (low Sodium).
Add 2 Chopped Onions and One Bell Pepper.

Place in oven and cook in a black iron pot in 6-8 hours at 300 degrees.
Thicken Gravy and add Green Onion Tops.
Meat will melt off the bone.
Serve over Rice.

re: Deer Neck Roast


Season it, Brown it in bacon grease, pull the neck out

add
Trinity
then
Baby Carrots (they are awesome with a neck roast)
Baby bella mushrooms
Minced Garlic and parsley
(Herb ideas: bay leaf, fresh thyme, or juniper(goes great with venison but haven't tried juniper with red wine before)

deglaze with 1/2 to a whole bottle red wine

add neck back in, add water up to mid point of neck; bring to boil; cover in the oven, cooking low and slow

Pull out when tender,

can thicken with a beurre manie or cornstarch if needed and serve over rice

It's like Coq au vin but with a deer neck

Had one cooked in a welding rod oven. Had onions and peppers. Served with jack millers and Evangeline Bread. Good stuff.

re: Deer Neck Roast


Got it thawed out in the fridge and will cook in morning for the game. Should I marinate or no or does it really matter since I'm eating ice cream and don't feel like moving.

re: Deer Neck Roast


Neck roast is my next to favorite cut of a deer after the backstrap. I usually take 2 or 3 extra deer a year just for their necks.
