Kid Friendly! Venison Sloppy Joes

Sloppy Joe

Back in the stone ages when I was a kid, mom often made sloppy joes. Let me tell you, I still remember how good they were. Yummy soft roll…filled with mom’s special sloppy joe recipe:  no green stuff…no red stuff…no chunks…a little sweet, a little savory, a LOT good and super messy. What’s not to really love there?? Well I’ve tailored mom’s recipe a little, I took it from beef (which back then was a whole lot healthier than the standard grocery store beef these days) to the super healthy and really tasty venison.  Try this on your kids (of any age!).

Directions

Brown and drain 1 lb. venison.

Mix together and add to the venison:

1/4 c. ketchup                                                                                                                                                     1/2 c.  (1 small can) tomato paste
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1 T. red wine vinegar
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/4 c. brown sugar – packed
1/4 tsp. chili powder

Simmer 30-45 minutes until sauce is very thick. OR put it in a slow cooker for as much as three hours.  I do this often on busy afternoons — it’s nice to come in to a great smelling kitchen with dinner ready to go!
