Peppered Roast of Venison

Peppered Roast of Venison

4-5 pounds round of venison
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon pepper
3/4 teaspoon ground thyme
3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 cup dry red wine
1/2 cup butter, melted

Wipe meat with a damp paper towel. Grind lemon pepper, garlic, salt and thyme with a mortar and pestle until well blended. Rub and pat onto all surfaces of the roast. Cover the roast with the onion slices, sticking a toothpick in each to hold it onto the venison. Roast 10 to 15 minutes per pound in a 350° oven. Baste the roast with a mixture of red wine and melted butter during the cooking. When done, remove and let stand for 15 minutes. Remove and discard the onion before carving. Serve with the pan juices. (Serves eight)
