Monday’s Bread Bowl: Sloppy Joes

A luscious way to eat ground meat

Yes, we have cravings for this rustic and homey dish every once in a while. Sloppy Joe is also great for kids. The trick is to pour on the meat and sauce, so that the sandwich is overstuffed. It’s okay to make a mess with this American favorite. Here’s our recipe:

What you will need:

1 large stock pot with lid
1 wooden spoon
3 tablespoons cooking oil
2 ½ -3 lbs ground beef
1 medium yellow onion, diced small
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
2 teaspoons oregano, dried
1 large bell pepper, diced small
1 (28 oz.) can crushed tomatoes
1/3 cup brown sugar
½ cup ketchup
3 teaspoons salt
Pepper to taste

Cooking and Preparation:

Heat stock pot on medium-high heat. Add cooking oil. Next, throw in onion, garlic, bell pepper, oregano, pepper, paprika, and chili powder. Stir ingredients. Let onion sweat until translucent. Add ground beef. Cover with lid and let beef cook until brown. Mix well and add tomatoes, salt, ketchup, mustard, and brown sugar. Stir well and cover with lid. When mixture starts to bubble, lower heat to medium-low. The pot should then simmer for at least 45 minutes to an hour. Serve on fresh hamburger buns.
