How Do You Cook Venison With a Pressure Cooker?

Venison can be cooked in a pressure cooker as you would any other meat. Season and brown the venison in cooking oil, then place it in the pressure cooker. Cover the meat with the amount of liquid your pressure cooker's instructions suggest, and cook for about 10 to 15 minutes. Venison is an ideal meat for a pressure cooker because it is a dry meat.

Venison has a gamey taste, which many people do not like. To avoid this taste, trim away as much of the fat as you can. Only the tenderloins, round and loin steaks can be cooked using dry-heat methods, such as broiling, frying, roasting or grilling. The rest of the cuts of venison should be cooked using a moist-heat cooking method, such as pressure cookers or crock pots.

To make a venison pot roast, season the cut of meat that is on the inside of the rolled roast. Use a seasoning combination of your choice, or use a vegetable soup mix for seasoning if you want to save time. Roll the cut of meat into a cylinder, and tie it with string. Cut the roast into the appropriate size for the number of people you are cooking for.

Add salt, pepper and flour to the outside of the rolled up venison. Add oil to the pressure cooker, and use the “browning” setting on your pressure cooker to brown the venison. Remove the rolled-up venison, and place the cooking rack into the pressure cooker. Place the venison onto the rack, and add water or broth, using as much as your specific pressure cooker recommends. One pound of venison cooks in around 10 to 15 minutes if you cook it at 10 pounds of pressure.
