If you know someone who likes beef but doesn't like venison, here's the best way I've found to make a deer roast taste like beef:
Brown a boneless venison roast (or stew trimmings may be even better) in a pressure cooker. Chop up the biggest eye-watering onion you can find and throw it in. Add 2-3 cups of water and three or four beef bouillon cubes, seal it up and let it chug away for a good while.
You'll need to know how your pressure cooker performs so you don't vent out all the water and burn it, but if you add enough water to let it perk for 45 minutes or so without running dry the end result is as close to a good beef roast as venison gets IMO.
