Slow Cooked Tenderloin & Gravy, Millie's

Millie Johnson


We love venison and chevon (goat), but they can be on the tough side. I like this recipe because it makes it's own gravy and the meat turns out fork tender. Good with pork loin, too. The smell of it slow cooking will make your mouth water !
You don't know how bad I wanted to name this recipe "Goat & Gravy", lol ! I was afraid if I did, nobody would give it a second glance. Hee hee ! ;)
