This is an American dish, which is usually made with beef. This version is made in the slow cooker with venison and bacon in a rich tomato-based sauce. Serve in soft burger buns or over rice.
this was awesome! i used ground instead of stew meat, added alittle beef broth and a little water! my husband raved and i liked it also! will definately have this recipe again! - 24 Oct 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I couldn't help but feel something was amiss when I saw one tablespoon of cumin. I think that the rave reviews are coming from people who hate the taste of venison. I followed the recipe exactly and thought the cumin overwhelmed any other flavor. - 13 Sep 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This slow cooker sloppy joe recipe is a definite keeper!! I was looking for something different to do with all the deer meat in our freezer and was not disappointed with this. A bonus is that it's done in the slow cooker! Everyone loved this and even looked forward to leftovers the day after! - 04 Jan 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
