This is a good recipe for Sloppy Joes.  I like the stuff in the can, sort of kinda,  but some in my house detest it, so I made this from scratch, and with red bell pepper, and not the green bell pepper that comes in Manwich.  We really liked it. I think next time I will add a splash of hot sauce to give this some kick! I topped it with cole slaw, and fresh veggies grilled on the side!

WHAT YOU NEED!!!

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, 1 turn of the pan
  • 1 1/4 pounds ground beef sirloin
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar 
  •  1 tablespoon steak seasoning blend, such as McCormick brand Montreal Seasoning
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 small red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 4 crusty rolls (split),  OR Hamburger buns , toasted, and lightly buttered

MAKE IT!!!

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add oil and meat to the pan. Spread the meat around the pan and begin to break it up. Combine brown sugar and steak seasoning. Add sugar and spice mixture to the skillet and combine. When the meat has browned, add onion and red peppers to the skillet. Reduce heat to medium and cook onions, peppers, red wine vinegar and Worcestershire sauce with meat for 5 minutes. Add tomato sauce and paste to pan. Stir to combine. Reduce heat to simmer and cook Sloppy Joe mixture 5 minutes longer.  Pile sloppy meat onto toasted, buttered bun bottoms and cover with bun tops. Serve with your favorite sides or sliced tomatoes or cole slaw on top which is what I ALWAYS put on ours.

Buon appetito always!
