Has anyone cooked a venison neck roast? I have been told that they are one

of the most flavorful cuts, but I've never cooked one. A coworker is bringing me one from a deer he got over the weekend.

My plan so far is to use my cast iron Dutch oven. I'll brown it well, add a braising liquid and put it in the oven at 325F until tender and then add potatoes, carrots, onions etc. like I would for beef pot roast.

Any suggestions? I'm thinking about using beer for liquid.

1. I have roasted or baked several over the years............

Necks tend to have lot of connective tissue. My family--experimented with the necks--but we ended up cooking it in apple cider (also fresh and is in season).

Anyway--good luck. oh--lots of onions.

3. I've never cooked a venison neck, but I've cooked chili with beef neck, and made soup with oxtail.

Very flavorful. Needs to be cooked until the meat basically dissolves.

5. Way back in the '70's, when I still ate meat, I was very fond

of adding a cup or two of dry red wine for the liquid in beef stew or pot roast. It makes a very flavorful gravy, particularly if 2 or 3 cloves of garlic and some basil leaves are added as well. I've never cooked venison, so take this for what it's worth.

6. I've been trying to decide if I want to use wine or beer.

There will be garlic involved, for sure.
