Original recipe makes 12 Servings



Combine ground deer, steak seasoning, chili powder, black pepper, cumin, basil, and garlic cloves in a large pot or deep electric skillet and mix well. Cook until the deer is no longer pink, stirring frequently. Add celery, onion, green pepper, and jalapenos. Cook until the vegetables are tender, stirring frequently.

Add beef broth, undrained beans, undrained tomatoes, barbeque sauce, and worcestershire sauce and mix well. Simmer until reduced to desired consistency. About 1 to 2 hours.

Serve with shredded cheese, chopped olives, and oyster crackers.


I always cook my chili in the slow cooker, and the longer it brews the better it usually is.

Huge hit in our family. Just learning to cook with deer meat and this combined flavors really well. I used only 2 lbs of burger, 1 tsp of cumin, added a tsp of steak seasoning, and used 2 bell peppers and left out the jalapenos since our family is not into super spicy and it was perfect. Thank you so much for this recipe!
