Wild Game Grill
As the healthy-minded search for a delicious spot to dine, and as the adventurous food lover yawns at the thought of another 'gourmet' burger, Wild Game Grill has arrived in metro Phoenix, offering healthy options that meet any culinary explorer's expectations.  Wild Game Grill at 2445 E. Thomas, boasts a menu of bison and boar, Rocky Mountain oysters, rabbit, elk, venison and more, without abandoning that gourmet burger, or steak either.  It's a dreamy foray into exotically comforting authentic foods that are free-range, high-protein and organic, too.
 
Wild Game Grill Rabbit Sloppy Joe:
 
Ingredients:
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 pounds ground rabbit
½ medium yellow onion, diced
4 cloves garlic minces
½ green bell pepper, diced
2 cups water
1 ½ cups ketchup
1 tablespoon Worcestershire
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon salt
½ tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
6 toasted onion buns 
 
Onion Strings:
 ½ medium yellow onion, sliced into thin rings
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 quart oil for frying
 
Directions for sloppy meat:
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add oil and meat to the pan. When the meat has browned, add bell pepper, onion and garlic and sweat until translucent.  Add 1 cup water. Be sure to scrap pan to mix in the rabbit meat drippings. Mix in ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, salt, and black pepper. Add the second cup of water and bring mixture to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has evaporated and the mixture is thick (about 40 minutes). Using a large spoon, pile sloppy meat onto toasted bun bottoms and top with onion strings. 
 
Directions for Onion Strings:
Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C). Combine flour, salt and pepper. Separate onion slices into rings. Dredge onion rings (be sure to separate rings and not leave them clumped together) thoroughly through flour mixture. Fry onion rings in 3 batches for 1 to 1 ½ minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towel.
