Sloppy Joes

Prep time:     Cook time:     Total time:
Yield: 8-10 sandwiches

It's not often that you can cook "Comfort food" in one pot, AND, get it done in about 30 minutes. This one is quick to make, and so much better than anything you might get in a store.

These are truly a memory food for me. When I was a little one, my parents rented a picnic table at a lake for the Summer. They did this for many years along with 4 or 5 relatives. That's where I learned how to swim, and pitch horse shoes, and always had Sloppy Joes. One Aunt had a Coleman Stove at their table, and that was where everything would be cooked. Sloppy Joes was one of those one pot meals that was real easy, and inexpensive, to cook for a large group.

It's also a prime candidate for Habanero / Cheddar Wing Sauce. It'll make this dish REAL rich and filling. At the same time, if you like things real spicy, just double up on the amount of blacken and cumin. Doing that along with the Habanero / Cheddar Wing Sauce, will make it perfect for you Chili Heads.



  • Vegetable Oil, as needed
  • 2 Pounds, Ground Chuck
  • 2 Medium, Onions
  • 1 Large, Green Bell Pepper
  • 1 Large, Pablano Pepper
  • 4 Cloves, Garlic
  • 4 Large, Jalapeno Chile Peppers
  • 4 Tablespoons, Butt Kickin' Blacken, Southwest Blend, 1/4 Cup
  • 2 Tablespoons, Ground Cumin
  • 25 Ounces, Canned Tomato Sauce
  • Salt, to taste

  • 2 Large Jalapeno Chile Peppers, Garnish
  • Tabasco Sauce, to taste
  • 3/4 Cup Habanero / Cheddar Wing Sauce, optional

1.    Fry the Ground Chuck in a pot over high heat, in about 1 Tablespoon of vegetable oil until there's no pink left, and all the moisture has evaporated. take the meat out of the pot, and place it in a bowl.

2.    While the meat is cooking, you can chop the vegetables. When the meat's done, add a little more oil to the pot, turn the heat to medium, put the chopped vegetables in and cover. Covering helps the vegetables cook quicker thanks to the steam that will be trapped in the pot.

3.    When the vegetables are soft, return the meat to the pot, add the tomato sauce, blacken, and cumin. Stir it all in. Get it all hot, then turn the heat down to low, and let it simmer for about 15 minutes.

4.    Serve on rolls. Because I had to cook this pretty mild, I added some chopped jalapenos, and tabasco sauce to mine after I places it in the bun. However, if you've got any of the Cheddar Wings Sauces hanging around, mix about 6 ounces into the mixture before you serve it. It'll make the Sloppy Joes real rich and filling.

Leftovers

These can easily be he-heated in a pot, or in the microwave. They'll be just as good the second day as they were the first.

If you've made them according to the recipe, you might want to change them up a bit, by adding some smokey BBQ Sauce or some of my Habanero / Cheddar Wing Sauces.
