We also eat most of our deer meat roast-style. I put it in the crock pot with either a packet of onion soup and some water, and even a little oil since it's so lean, OR I'll use fresh or dried onion, low-sodium beef boullion, black pepper, and a couple other spices - lower sodium than the onion soup! I'll let it cook til done, I don't add veggies, we'll have potatoes & veggies on the side later, and even shred & ?BBQ the meat. Once when we were camping I cut the meat into chunks, cooked it like above in my cast iron dutch oven over the fire, and added cut up potatoes, carrots, other stew veggies, then when it was almost done I added in some cream of celery soup to the juices and it was a creamy stew - the same thing could be done on the stove or in the crock pot. Deer jerky & deer sticks are also very popular, we bring the trimmings to the locker to be made into those. That's about it for deer for us though!
