Venison Sloppy Joes (crockpot & skillet)

You could probably use ground beef with this, but I also have a sloppy joe recipe I love to use with ground beef I can share, too.

I prefer using ground venison, but if you are crockpotting this you could use stew meat which will cook down into shreds over time.


  • 1/4c bacon fat
  • 2lb venison, ground or cubed
  • 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 2tb garlic
  • 1/2tb cumin
  • 1/2tb chili powder
  • 1c ketchup
  • 1tb dijon mustard
  • Hamburger buns


  • Brown the meat, you can skip this step if you are using the crockpot.  Just combine all ingredients , minus the buns,  and cook on low for 8 hours.  If you are making the skillet version, brown the venison.  Then add the remaining ingredients and cook over medium heat for about 15 minutes.
