Fish and Game Recipe of the Week: Summer Brown Sugar Chili

Brown Sugar Chili Fish and Game Recipe of the WeekChili isn’t just for winter or deer camp. In fact, I like to make it year-round and then change the flavor depending on the season.

This particular recipe calls for sweet ingredients being as it’s the middle of summer, but feel free to pack the heat if you are so inclined.

Add some sweet/honey cornbread to top this recipe off.

Brown Sugar Chili

  • 1 lb extra lean ground beef or venison
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar**(see note below)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (optional)
  • 2 (14 ounce) cans kidney beans
  • 2 cups tomato juice or chunks
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper and/or red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons of honey mustard

Brown meat/venison and stir in mustard and chili powder. Combine all other ingredients into crockpot. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours.

** You may want to start by trying only 1/3 cup of brown sugar. You can always mix in more later to sweeten it up if you’d like.

If you like it hotter, adding some spice is a nice compliment to the brown sugar flavor. Try red pepper flakes or jalapenos. I would not recommend hot sauce for this particular recipe And add in any other of your favorite ingredients such as celery and bell pepper to make it your own.
