Coffee-Spiked Venison Sloppy Joes #FreakyFriday


If you didn’t already know, this girl LOVES venison.  Each recipe made in our house growing up used venison instead of beef.  The meat is lean, full of flavor, and oh so good.  So, of course when I noticed Kris’ post on Big Rigs ‘n Lil’ Cookies, it had to be made ASAP!  I’m so excited to be included in another Freaky Friday event with several fabulous bloggers.  You all remember the movie Freaky Friday, right?  Well, that is what’s happening for this post, we are switching things up, and making someone else’s recipe.  When I found out I would be making one of Kris’ recipes, I was beyond excited.  The problem…Well, not a problem, more like indecision.  What should I make?  All you have to do is stop at her blog, and you will understand why my decision was so tough.  Everything she shares looks fabulous, truth!!!  So, tell me, who wants me to serve them up a delicious Coffee-Spiked Venison Sloppy Joe?

This recipe was made in a crock-pot for the original post.  Since I’m impatient, I let it simmer stove-top for almost an hour.  I did add some water during the hour, just to keep the meat moist, and prevent it from burning.  The recipe below will be exactly what Kris made, just know you can choose the slow-cooker option, or stove-top option.  With my chaotic schedule, this recipe was so easy to make, and full of fabulous flavor.  I tend to eat VERY spicy food, so something I would add to the recipe is a little heat.
