Lard venison on all sides, then rub well with salt, pepper, garlic salt and flour. Brown in hot fat turning often to brown all edges. Transfer to large roaster.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine sauce ingredients in pan, heat to boiling and pour over meat in roaster being sure to have some apples on top.
