Venison Sloppy Joes - Slow Cooker
2010-05-08 Other

Slow cooked so even the toughest of stew meats will work; eventually the meat just falls apart!

  • Servings: 4
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 8 hrs.
  • Total Time: 8 hrs. & 5 mins.


¼ lb Bacon
2 lb Venison Stew Meat
1 Large Yellow Onion, chopped
½ cup Brown Sugar
¼ cup Wine Vinegar
1 Tbsp Ground Cumin
1 tsp Chili Powder
2 Tbsp Minced Garlic
1 Tbsp Prepared Dijon-style Mustard
1 cup Ketchup
Salt & Pepper To Taste


Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Remove from skillet, crumble and set aside. Brown stew meat in bacon grease for flavor.

Put onion, sugar, vinegar, cumin, chili powder, garlic, mustard, ketchup, salt and pepper in slow cooker and mix well. Add bacon and venison and stir together.

Cook for a minimum of 8 hours on Low setting.

Use a fork to separate the meat into a thick and yummy Sloppy Joe-style barbecue.

**Note** it's excellent served on rolls with sharp Cheddar cheese. Also good served over hot cooked rice / mashed potatoes, yum,yum!
