Sloppy joes recipe

Sloppy joes recipe

A staple of America, sloppy joes are basically chilli burgers without the chilli, I guess you could call it a deconstructed burger in a way.

And yes, you read it right it’s uses a lot of ketchup!

Here’s the recipe

Ingredients (makes about 8)
  •     400-500g minced beef
  •     8 burger buns
  •     1 green or red pepper
  •     1 medium/large onion
  •     1-2 tsp garlic paste
  •     400g ketchup (try not to use ketchup that’s really cheap as it’s usually far too sweet)
  •     1-2 tbsp American mustard
  •     1-2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  •     1-2 tbsp brown sugar
  •     1-2 tbsp gravy granules
  •     Salt and pepper
  •     Oil, for cooking
  •     Frying pan
  •     Knife
  •     Chopping board
Cooking method (15-25 minutes)
  1.     Start by dicing the onion and dicing the pepper.
  2.     Heat some oil in a pan to a medium heat in a pan, when it’s hot add the onion and pepper and cook for about 5 minutes until soft.
  3.     Add the beef and garlic paste, cook for another 5 minutes or so until the mince has browned.
  4.     Add the ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and sugar, stir well and cook for 10-15 minutes on a low heat until the sauce has thickened, add the granules, stir in and cook for another minute or two.
  5.     In a clean frying pan(if you have one) heat it to a medium-high heat and toast the insides of the bun.
  6.     Serve and slop out with joe.

A sloppy joe is an American invention, it’s got quite a scary amount of ketchup in (and I love ketchup) but they are incredibly moreish.
