Venison chops or steaks, low in fat and calories, are a nutritious, vitamin-rich alternative to beef, pork or other farm animals. However, because the meat is so lean, cooking venison requires special attention to prevent the chops from becoming tough and dry. Cooking venison chops in your slow cooker requires no browning, making it a healthy, flavorful family dinner. Place a few simple ingredients in the slow cooker in the morning and enjoy a ready-to-eat meal a few hours later.
Layer the venison chops in the slow cooker. If the chops are large, cut them into smaller pieces.
Sprinkle seasonings of your choice over the chops. For example, add freshly ground black pepper and salt to taste; then add seasonings such as sage, garlic powder or onion powder to suit your and your family's preferences. Alternatively, sprinkle a packet of dry onion soup mix over the chops.
Pour a can of cream of mushroom or celery soup evenly over the venison chops. Fill the soup can with water and pour the liquid over the chops.
Cover the slow cooker, then cook the venison chops on low for about six to eight hours. Add extra soup or water if the fluid evaporates. You can also add beef broth, cider, beer, wine or fruit juice. Don't allow the meat to dry out.
Serve venison chops over toast, rice, pasta or mashed potatoes.
