"This recipe comes from my friend who is a guide in Alaska - it's excellent for sandwiches, on rolls with sharp Cheddar cheese. Yum yum! Slow cooked in a slow cooker so even the toughest of roasts or stew meats will work; eventually the meat just falls apart! Also good served over hot cooked rice. Delicious!" — SHIVERDEN

venison stew meat
yellow onion, chopped
prepared Dijon-style mustard
salt and pepper to taste
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!
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.
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!
This is so good! This was awesome made with steaks and cutlets. I pulled it apart at 7 hours and let it simmer another hour. Tonight I used ground venison and it was a hit at our potluck. I used 4 lbs of meat and 2 1/2 times the other ingredients. Delicious!!
Yummm, this was delicious. My husband does not like ketchup or mustard, so I replaced with bbq sauce. Final result tasted more like a pulled-pork style sandwich as opposed to a sloppy joe. I put this in the crockpot during hunting season, and it was ready to go when the hungry boys came out of the woods. This is definitely a keeper.
Awesome! I made this for a party and it was a huge hit. I used ground venison instead of stew meat and it turned out great. I browned the meat and then cooked it in the slow cooker for 4 hours instead of 8. I served them with potato slider rolls instead of full sized hamburger buns. Next time, I think I will try adding diced green peppers.
I've never had Venison before trying this recipe. My husband's friend gave us some and we didn't know what to do with it. It was a fabulous recipe and I would try it again in a hearbeat. No additions or substitutes needed. Thank You.
We really liked the flavor of this recipe but I think I made a mistake in using venison round steak. After 9 hours on low it was shreadable but still tough when you bit into it. I will try this recipe again with a less tough cut of meat!
