20110519 Sloppy Joes
Sloppy Joe is so easy to make and no recipe is needed - just throw in whatever you can find in your fridge/freezer! I used green bell pepper this time, but 1/2 cup of frozen mix vegetables would do the work too. Sloppy Joes are best served with potato chips and a cold beer!
2 tbsp olive oil
500g minced beef
1 small onion, finely diced
1 small green bell pepper, finely diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
2/3 cup ketchup
1/2 cup water
1 rounded table spoon brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp chilli powder
1 tbsp tomato paste
salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 slices of cheese
4 Freshly toasted buns
1. Heat the oil in a pan over medium high heat, and brown the beef. Add the onion, green pepper, and garlic. Cook until the vegetables begin to soften. Add ketchup, brown sugar, chilli powder, tomato paste, and water. Combine well and simmer for 15 minutes. Season with Worcestershiree sauce, Tobasco sauce, salt and pepper.
2. Spoon meat mixture over the buns, and top with a slice of cheese.
