I was given a lot of ground venison, and I love to use it in this recipe! I think it's perfect as written, but I cut the green pepper in half to suit my children's tastes. I don't think I will be able to eat the canned sloppy joe sauce ever again!

Thanks for the Great receipe Stacy. I doubled the receipe and added one 1/2 pint of my home made hot pepper jelly to it and I could not stop eating it. I couldn't wait for the next day so I could have it for lunch again.

Excellent! I actually used 1 lb of beef and then 1 lb of venison sausage (only because I opened the package and it wasn't marked "sausage") but the result was outstanding. Hubby isn't a ketchup fan, so I subbed out 1/2 of the ketchup for his favorite BBQ sauce. And I used up my last green pepper yesterday (whoops again) so I used 2 stalks of celery in it's place. Lastly, I saw in another recipe they threw in a handful of oatmeal to boost the health factor and to stretch the recipe a little. I sauteed the veggies first, then browned off the meat and through all the ingredients in the crockpot on low for about 2.5 hours. Again, WOW and yummy!

Followed the recipe to a T. Very good sloppy joes. I have a lot of venison burger to eat this coming year and I know this recipe will get used frequently. Thanks for posting it!
