Venison Gravy is made of tender, shredded bits of venison smothered in a creamy gravy and inspired by the homemade comfort of creamed chipped beef.
If you want to use something beside venision in this gravy, it’s equally tasty. I’ve used roast beef, ground beef and more recently, I’ve used deli-sliced roast beef. This is a great recipe to use up leftovers.
How to Remove Gamey Taste in Venison
The venison we get is dressed really well and packaged immediately. We rarely have any gamey taste but, sometimes, you just want to be safe.
I decide on my overnight marinade based on what I’ll be making. Since I’m making Venison Gravy, I decided to marinate the raw meat in milk overnight.
I’ve used everything from salad dressing to salt brine. The marinade you use will obviously affect the flavor. Milk is best when you want something very mild.

How to Cook Venison Roast
I had cooked this venison roast in the Instant Pot. Unlike other cooking methods, it doesn’t seem to need a lot of tenderizing. The meat is completely fork tender from the pressure cooker.
Wash off the milk from the meat in cool water. Place half a large onion, cut in slivers, into the Instant Pot with the chunks of venison. Add about a teaspoon Beef Better Than Bouillon and 1 ½ cups water. Pressure cook for 70 minutes, then natural release.
The venison will be perfectly tender and will take almost no effort to shred it.
If you want a different use for your venison roast, also try this Tomato Braised Venison I’ve done in the Instant Pot. It’s delicious with tomato.

If I have already chipped venison instead of a roast, how long would I put it in the Instant Pot? 70 minutes seems too lengthy.
Christian Guzman says
You have uncooked chopped venison? If I was planning on using it to make venison gravy, I would probably cook it in water with an onion (cut in half) for about 20-25 minutes, natural release. When you open it, check for doneness. It’s okay to cook it more, if it’s not as tender as you would like. Just always make sure you have enough liquid to cook again. Some of it is released by steam.
