I posted this Crab Soup recipe using imitation crab meat a while back but wanted to post it again since Giant Eagle is having a great deal on the Campbell’s Homestyle Soup this week plus the Trans Ocean Crab Classic is reduced to $2!  I’ve been making this Crab Recipe for many years especially since it’s inexpensive and very easy to make – the hardest part is simply peeling the potato!   This is a great way to turn an ordinary can of soup into dinner 🙂



Venison Recipes: Deer Meat Sandwiches

venison recipes: Deer Meat Sandwiches!  A must have for hunters!  This is my favorite way to eat deer meat! www.ladysavings.com
Venison Recipes: Venison Sandwiches
If you have a deer hunter in you family, consider yourself lucky since you probably have a freezer full of venison right now!  This recipe for venison sandwiches is my husband’s and my favorite way to cook and eat deer meat!  We could easily eat this at least twice a week without getting tired of it.

The KEY ingredient for us is the hot pepper cheese…it’s a MUST!  We like our food with a little kick so if you prefer something less spicy, simply use a different kind of cheese.

Cooking Method: Slow Cooker
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 6 hours
Yield: 8 Sandwiches


  • 2 lbs of venison roasts
  • 1-2 onions sliced
  • 1 package of onion soup mix (or beefy onion soup mix)
  • Water (just enough to cove the meat in the slow cooker)
  • Hot pepper cheese, sliced
  • Sub buns or rolls

  • Sodium: 916 milligrams
  • Sugar: 4 grams


  1. Place the venison and onions into a slow cooker.  No need to thaw or brown the meat.
  2. Sprinkle the onion soup mix over the deer meat and add enough water to just cover the meat
  3. Place cover on slow cooker and cook on high for at least 6 hours or until the meat is tender
  4. Remove venison from the slow cooker and shred with a fork
  5. Return shredded venison to the slow cooker
  6. Using a slotted spoon, spoon the meat onto the bottom of a sub bun
  7. Top Venison with hot pepper cheese and the top of the sub bun and enjoy!

You can drain the venison if you prefer dryer sandwiches.  I don’t drain the meat too well since my husband loves extra juice to dip his sandwiches in.

This is the easiest venison recipe that I know of especially since you do not have to thaw or brown the meat!  Plus, there aren’t many ingredients and you can quickly prepare it in the slow cooker!  Double this venison recipe if you would like to  have sandwiches for lunch or dinner the next day!

If you aren’t on Pinterest but have a favorite venison recipe that you would like to share, you can leave the recipe in the comments as well!  I’m always looking for new ways to make deer meat although I tend to keep making these sandwiches over and over since I love them so much!

Slow Cooker Recipe-Vegetable Beef or Venison Soup with V8 Juice

Vegetable Beef Soup with V8 Juice Slow Cooker Recipe

Kerri passed along her Vegetable Beef or Venison Soup with V8 Juice a while back and I finally got around to making it….and I’m glad I did!  You can use a slow cooker for this or simply a crock pot.  I thought I would repost this now that I have a picture to go with the recipe!

I tweaked this slow cooker recipe a little so be sure to check out Kerri’s original Beef Soup Recipe using V8 Juice.  The V8 Juice I bought was 64oz which is much larger than the cans so I had to adjust the ingredients.  This Vegetable Beef Recipe was delicious AND Healthy!  How often do you use 6 cans of veggies for your dinner?!
Vegetable Beef or Venison Soup with V8 Juice

  • 1 (64oz) bottle of V-8 juice plus the same container full of water  
  • 2-3 lbs of ground beef or venison, browned and drained
  • 6 cans of mixed vegetables (any kind you want!  I used mostly green beans and corn)
  • 2 envelopes of Onion soup mix (I used “beefy onion”)


  • Pour the V-8 juice plus the water into the slow cooker
  • Add the COOKED ground beef or venison
  • Add 6 cans of vegetables
  • Add 2 envelopes of onion soup mix
  • Stir, Cover and Cook on low for the day or High for a few hours.

Thanks again to Kerri for this recipe! For a more traditional version try this Beef Soup Recipe!
