Moose Roast: The Easiest Crockpot Recipe

Chelsea Hansler // April 28

If you're looking for a crockpot moose roast recipe, here we go!

Despite my love for a good meal, I am reluctant to admit that cooking is not a task that I thoroughly enjoy. This has led me to collect an abundance of easy, simple ingredient recipes throughout my adulthood that I can easily prepare for my family. I have tried and failed more times than I care to admit in my early adulthood at cooking moose meat. I have tried many recipes and variations, but when it comes to a moose roast, I stick to only one.

When I first came across this recipe a decade ago, it was quickly shown between segments on one of our regularly watched outdoor channels. I quickly jotted it down and still refer to it time and time again. I have since lost the recipe card but with its simplicity, it’s an easy one to remember and a staple in our home.

  • 1 c flour
  • 2 Tbsp steak seasoning
  • 4-6 strips of bacon
  • 1/4 c water

Directions for Cooking a Moose Roast

  1. Add all the ingredients and your thawed roast to a Ziploc bag or container to marinate in the fridge for up to two hours.
  2. Prepare a mixture of flour and steak seasoning in a bowl, stirring to combine.  Roll your roast into the mixture, coating the entire surface on all sides. 
  3. Heat a pan of olive oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is heated, use tongs to set your roast into the oil, searing every side. Rotate so that every section reaches a golden brown, locking in the flavor and juices.  Once all the sides are seared, remove the pan from heat. 
  4. Place your roast into a crockpot. Cover the top of your roast with strips of bacon and add 1/4 cup of water. Turn your crockpot to low. Cook for 7-8 hours. 
  5. That’s it. I told you it was easy. Once it reaches your desired redness, remove from the crockpot and serve! We generally will let ours reach 140 F on the outside. Therefore the middle will be rarer, providing a range of meat to please all.
