Sloppy Joes – Holiday Recipe Club
For this installment of the Holiday Recipe Club, we celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee! The Jubilee marks 60 years since the Queen came to the throne. Our ingredient choices were tea, jam or Worcestershire sauce. As soon as I saw Worcestershire sauce, I knew exactly what I wanted to make.
My favorite Sloppy Joe recipe ever! Now, I know this has nothing to do with the Queen or England but the recipe was too good to pass up! Serve with some fries and you’ve got a comfort meal of epic proportions.
Sloppy Joes (Serves 4-6)
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 pound lean ground beef
1 medium onion, minced
1/2 green bell pepper, minced
3 garlic cloves
2 tsp prepared yellow mustard
3/4 cup ketchup
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
Salt to taste
Ground black pepper to taste
In a medium skillet over medium heat, soften the onions in olive oil. Add the ground beef and garlic, and brown. Drain off liquid. Add bell pepper and cook for a couple of minutes to soften them.
Stir in mustard, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar; mix thoroughly. Reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
You can add barbeque sauce, more ketchup or more of the sauce stuff to make it as “sloppy” as you want. This recipe is exactly how I like it. I like to add pickle slices to it! Enjoy!
