  • Heat remaining 1 1/2 tablespoon oil in another skillet over medium heat. Add venison; cook and stir until lightly browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in black pepper, cayenne pepper, grill seasoning, garlic salt, and Worcestershire sauce; cook until venison is browned, 4 to 5 minutes.

  • Combine tomato, barbeque sauce, ketchup, tomato paste, and hot sauce in a food processor; pulse until sauce is combined.

  • Combine onion mixture, venison mixture, and sauce in a saucepan. Simmer until flavors combine, 10 to 15 minutes. Divide among buns; top with Cheddar cheese.

Cook's Note:

Substitute 2 to 3 Roma tomatoes for the vine tomato if preferred.

These turned out great! It masks the gaminess just enough but still allows the flavor of the venison to come through. If you've got some venison in the freezer that needs used I recommend using this recipe! Read More

Great recipe. I used the equivalent amount of multicolor sweet peppers for additional color. I'd be a bit more generous with the seasoning amounts. Saute the onions and peppers and move to a plate. Use same pan to cook venison and mix sauces in a small bowl with a wisk. Less to clean. Last note, gaminess comes mostly from deer fat. Ensure your processor removes all of it and grind with beef fat. Read More
