Sloppy Joes

A great recipe for from-scratch Sloppy Joes. I’ll eat Manwich from a can too, but this just seems a lot fresher. It’s a big recipe, our family always has like half of it left over.

  • 2Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 4 ribs celery, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 c tomato sauce
  • 3 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tsp Tabasco
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire
  • Burger buns

Heat oil in large frying pan over medium heat, saute all veg until soft. Add garlic, cook 3-4min. Increase heat to med high and add gr. beef, cook until browned (10-12 min). Season with salt&pepper. Lower heat to medium and add liquids. Cook 15-30min until sufficiently reduced & thick.
