I grew up eating sloppy Joes on a bun at school. For many years, I had a bad perception of Sloppy Joes because of school cafeterias. Recently, someone made me this Sloppy Joes recipe and my opinion of Sloppy Joes completely changed. Forget the canned sloppy Joe sauce – make your own!
We have been deep in the winter season and I know all it makes you do is crave carbs. Let’s ride that out, were hibernating anyway. Is anyone to see you in a bathing suit anytime soon? NO! This is one of those meals that makes great leftovers. The meat tastes better the next day, do you know what I mean?
You can serve this meat over Roasted Spaghetti Squash, on a bun, or even over rice! There is something so satisfying about the sweet and savory combination of this sauce. You could even add some red pepper flakes for a nice spicy kick! This recipe would apir well with My Homemade Mac and Cheese, Citrus BBQ Ribs, and Kale in Hot Cherry Peppers.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat, cook the garlic, green pepper, and onion, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the ground beef and cook until no longer pink and the vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Drain the fat, If necessary.
Stir the tomato paste and brother into the ground beef mixture. When the paste is blended in, add the brown sugar, Worcestershire, and mustard and stir to combine. Simmer for 20 minutes to allow the flavors to blend together.
Garnish with parsley leaves and serve on potato buns.Print
