Rick loves Sloppy Joes. I think most people do. I will eat them on occasion, but was traumatized when I was a kid. I still remember the kind of Sloppy Joes that the lunch lady served me in grade school... and I had no idea what went in it! Yuck. But this recipe is safe, and it's good. It's also super easy and quick to make. A great recipe for those Wednesday nights when you come home and have no idea what to the feed the kids.

I just had a thought. You know what would be cool? Instead of a Hungry Man line of food products, there should be Wild Man TV dinners! With venison, duck and geese! OoOoOh... only in a perfect world.

Servings: 6
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
- 1 1/2 lbs. ground venison
- 1/2 cup chopped onion

- 1 tbs. brown sugar
- 1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
- ground black pepper, to taste

- hamburger buns
- sliced mozzarella cheese
- bread and butter pickles, optional

Remember to remove the seeds and white inside parts of the pepper. 

1. In a large skillet, brown ground venison, onion and green pepper over medium heat. 

Stir in garlic powder.
2. In a bowl, combine mustard, ketchup and brown sugar. Mix well. 

3. Stir ketchup mixture into the browned meat.

You can heat the Sloppy Joes in the oven to help the cheese melt.
