I apologize in advance for this post. I’m posting from my phone using the WordPress app.
Anyhow, I made these sloppy joes by mistake. I had a taste for them, but when I picked up the Manwich can and read the ingredients I wasn’t impressed. The first two ingredients were sugar of some sort. So I decided to make my own from scratch.
The recipe is super easy. It took less than 15 minutes from start to finish. I had mashed potatoes on hand and decided to heat them in a skillet to brown the top and bottom before heaping on a helping of sloppy joe meat. Such an excellent combination.
Homemade Sloppy Joes
1 pound ground turkey or beef
1/2 medium onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
2 cups canned diced tomatoes with liquid
1/4 cup barbecue sauce (I used Open Pit Sweet Chipotle
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
Cook meat on medium high heat in a large pan until almost done, about 7 minutes. Add onion and pepper and cook an additional 3 minutes.
Add tomatoes, Worcestershire and barbecue sauces. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium low. Let simmer for 5 minutes or until liquid is reduced. Serve over potatoes or on buns.
