Rolled Stuffed Roast of Venison

Use a top or bottom round roast for this recipe. Don’t use meat thicker than 1 inch or butterfly it if needed. You can use moose or elk meat, although you will have to cut in half and freeze for later use.

Ingredients:
6 slices of bacon
2 tsp dried parsley flakes
1 medium onion
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 cup chopped carrot
3 to 4 lb. roast up to 1” thick
1/3 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
3 slices bacon, cut in half

Directions:
Fry six slices of bacon in large skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove from heat. Drain on paper towels. Keep 3 tablespoons of bacon fat. Crumble bacon and set aside. Heat oven to 325. Cook and stir onion, celery and carrots in reserved bacon fat over medium heat until tender. Remove from heat. Stir in crumbled bacon, bread crumbs and seasoning. Spread vegetable mixture evenly over roast. Pat mixture firmly into place. Roll up “jelly roll” style, rolling with the grain of the meat. Tie roast with kitchen string. Place in roasting pan. Top the roast with halved slices of bacon. Roast to desired doneness, 22 to 30 minutes per pound.

Makes 6-8 servings

Similar recipe calls for a garlic butter drizzle and you can also use waterfowl!

Just happen to have a 2 lb tenderloin that would be perfect for this. Sounds devine! Thanks

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
