Venison Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers

Venison Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers

A new take on stuffed peppers! I absolutely love making new recipes by combining two of my favorite recipes together. I love sloppy joes and I love stuffed peppers, but I often get bored of traditional stuffed pepper recipes. These were out of this world delicious and a new staple in our house!

This recipe is designed to be low carb, but if you’d like to add white rice, here’s how! While you’re adding in the tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce and apple over vinegar, add in 1/2 cup white rice and 1/4 cup chicken broth. You’ll need to let it simmer for 15 minutes before stuffing the sloppy Joe mixture.

My favorite stuffed pepper recipe EVER! If you love sloppy joes and stuffed peppers you’ll love this perfect combination of the two recipes.



2 tablespoons Olive Oil, Divided

1 medium Yellow Onion, Chopped

1 pound Ground Venison

1 teaspoon Salt

½ teaspoon Black Pepper

1 tablespoon Minced Garlic

1 tablespoon Tomato Paste

1 cup Tomato Sauce

¼ cup Ketchup

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar

1 ½ – 2 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese

3 Large or 4 Small to Medium Bell Peppers, Cut Lengthwise


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

  2. Cut your bell peppers in half lengthwise, then remove the core and seeds. Drizzle one tablespoon of olive oil over the peppers and place them in a baking dish. Bake in the preheated for 15 minutes. 

  3. While the peppers are in the oven, heat the remaining one tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add onion and ground venison and cook, breaking up the venison as it cooks, until no longer pink, about 6-8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and drain off any fat.

  4. Add in minced garlic and tomato paste and cook for one minute, stirring constantly.

  5. Add in tomato sauce, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and apple cider vinegar. Stir well and simmer. Stir 1 cup of the cheese into the sloppy Joe mixture and divide evenly among the peppers. Top with remaining cheese then bake for 20-30 minutes or until the peppers are hot and bubbly and the peppers cooked to your desired firmness.
