maple and apple slow cooked venison

I was reading the blog Simply Breakfast during the holidays.  There was a recipe that that called my name:  Maple and Apple Slow Cooker Pulled Pork.  But I did not wish to go to the store and I had a venison shoulder in the freezer.  I tried the recipe with the venison and it is pretty fabulous.  It should be pretty fabulous with pork.

Maple and Apple Slow Cooked Venison

Note:  I actually had a smaller shoulder and kept the spices the same.  My family loved it!

3 pound venison shoulder

1 cup apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/2 teaspoon ground mustard

1/2 teaspoon ground paprika

pinch of ground cloves

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper

2 tablespoon soy sauce

3 garlic cloves, chopped

1/2 onion, diced

1 apple, peeled, cored, and diced

Put the venison shoulder in a crock pot that will hold it.

Pour everything on top of the shoulder.  Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or until the meat pulls apart.

I served this with mashed potatoes and coleslaw but you could put it on a bun and eat it that way.  This is one we are going to do again, probably with the venison neck next time.
