Sloppy joes

Sloppy joes

You probably knew that I would share a recipe that uses the buns recipe I posted last week and you were right! I made some sloppy joes. Perfect for a weeknight dinner, it takes 20 minutes to prep and it tastes great. + little ones LOVE burgers, everyone is pleased.

If you don’t know what sloppy joes are, it’s basically ground beef with a bunch of seasonings and sauces in a buns (homemade or not). Yummy food, you can add whatever you like on top: cheese (I did), veggies, pickles… Don’t feel overwhelmed when reading the ingredients list, it is mostly things we have in our pantries.

With leftovers I made a poutine. Fries, sloppy joes meat, cheese + in the oven until melted and you have a delicious meal.

Sloppy joes (serves 6) :

  • 6 buns
  • 700g ground beef
  • 1 onion
  • 180g (3/4 cup) ketchup
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp mustard
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp chili powder (optional)
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp peppeer
  • 1 tsp origano

Sautee the ground beef and finely diced onion in a frying pan with a little bit oil until the meat is no longer pink. Drain the meat.

Turn on medium-low and add all the other ingredients! Stir well. Add 10cl of water if it is too thick, cover with a lid and let it cook for 20 minutes.

Serve hot on buns with the toppings you want!
