  1. Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add a tablespoon of cooking oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Once the oil shimmers, add the ground venison and brown.
  2. Remove the venison and set aside. Add another drizzle of oil if needed and sauté the diced yellow onion until brown and soft, or about 3-5 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook an additional minute.
  3. Deglaze the pan with water and vinegar. Incorporate the ketchup, sugar, and all the spices. Reduce the heat to low and simmer the sauce for a few minutes to thicken. Return the venison and stir.
  4. Serve with warm hamburger buns.
