Sloppy Joes

11 May

I made sloppy joes. They’re pretty tasty, especially since I added some habeñero powder… 😀

  • 3 lbs. lean ground beef
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 1 large red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 small carrot, peeled and finely chopped or grated
  • 3 6-oz. cans tomato paste
  • 1/3 c. cider vinegar, plus extra for adjusting flavor after cooking
  • 1/3 c. firmly packed light brown sugar, plus extra for adjusting flavor after cooking
  • 3 t. paprika
  • 2 t. dry mustard
  • 2 t. salt
  • 2 t. chili powder, more or less, to taste
  • 1 t. fresh ground black pepper, more or less, to taste
  • 1 t. rooster sauce

Here’s what I did. Brown your ground beef in a large pot, breaking it into small pieces as it cooks.

Once it’s brown, add your chopped onions, red peppers, and carrots in. You could also add garlic in now, but I was lazy and didn’t feel like chopping any up (our slap-chop was in the dishwasher).

Throw in your spices, tomato paste, brown sugar, and basically everything else on the ingredient list into the pot, and let it simmer for however long you feel like, or until the veggies are nice and soft.

Toast some hamburger buns, top with meat filling, add cheese if you so desire, and enjoy!

NOTE: My computer is being silly and not letting me add photos so… I’ll go back in and add them later.

Edit: There’s pictures now!

Happy eating!

    Awesome possum! No, it’s not really made from possum. But super tasty!
