Need a quick dinner idea for dinner one night? Consider trying these Super Delicious Sloppy Joes.
Literally the Best Sloppy Joes i have ever had. These were even a hit with my 2 picky eaters!!! I omitted the Onion and Green Pepper, and used onion powder instead. My kids wouldnt of touched it if there were onions and green peppers in it!
ketchup – 3/4 cup
chili sauce – 3/4 cup (I used sweet thai chili sauce)
water – 1 cup
balsamic vinegar – 2 tbsp
brown sugar – 2 tbsp
chili powder – 2 tsp
cumin – 1/2 tsp
Honey Dijon Mustard – 1 tbsp
crushed red pepper – 1/2 tsp or more
worcestershire sauce – 2 tsp
tomato paste – 2 tbsp
butter – 2 tbsp
onion – 1/2 large, diced
green pepper – 1 large, diced
garlic – 4 cloves, minced
ground beef – 2 pounds (1 kilo)
In a medium bowl, stir together the ketchup, chili sauce, water, vinegar, brown sugar, chili powder, cumin, mustard, red pepper, worcestershire and tomato paste and set aside.
Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium heat and add the onion and bell pepper and cook until softened, about 3 – 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook another minute or two.
Increase the heat to high, add the ground beef and cook until browned, breaking it up well with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Drain off the excess fat.
Stir in the liquid mixture, generously salt and pepper and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until thickened.
Serve on toasted hamburger buns with mustard, pickles and cheese if you want.
