Oh Hi, today we’re going to make Sloppy Joes.
- Green bell pepper
- Mustard buns
- Little oil
- Fresh vegetables
- 80 percent meat
- 20 percent fat
1You need a hamburger, an onion, green bell pepper and believing off the star of the show days of ketchup, a little mustard buns to put them on and I always work with salt and pepper and a little oil for frying. So we want to get to the finish line fast. Turn your heat on high and pour about one tablespoon of the oil. I’m gonna swish it around you know why this just makes it easier for me. Because I need to brown the hamburger having it so it doesn’t stick helps me out.
I want crumbled hamburger in my sloppy joes. So I’m going to help it crumble. By crumbling it above the pan as I drop it in. This is 1 pound of hamburger. If you have an army to feed double up. Oops on the leg. He got away I want him to brown on the outside. So I’m letting him sizzle. I’m letting that first layer get some of the browning because that makes a little more sugar flavor in that meat naturally.
3So now I need a chopper onion. When I cook I typically do a rough chop because it’s just faster that way.Now this is how I like to rough chop an onion. I cut off the ends. Cut down the center and then I peel that little skin. You could have twice as many onions in this dish and it’ll be fantastic. Today I’m having one chop chop chop. If you chop it onion roll pieces. It’ll kind of mimic the same size as your ground hamburger and that’s pretty good.
4But don’t worry about anything being perfect when you’re cooking the thing about cooking is you just want to do it. You want to eat you need to cook. I’m also having a little pepper this. This one was really big. I’m only going to use half. I want to cook I like about the same size of pepper. As my onion as in most of my recipes alone uniformity is bad in summertime it’s so nice to use fresh vegetables in your dishes. I’m adding one teaspoon of salt it’s time to flip that ground beef. So it gets all minced up a little pieces. I’m using a spatula that has a big surface area. He’s gonna save me some work. My stove is still on high. While I’m doing this. Because every time it touches the whole piece of meat it cools it down. So even on high and this is a good range.

6It doesn’t cook that fast and I’m not burning anything. A lot of moisture will come out of ground beef and that becomes kind of part of the sauce but it cooks off too and that’s when you get the golden brown color. This is lean ground beef it’s 80 percent meat and 20 percent fat and I think that’s just about right for this recipe because I like a rich sloppy joe.
7Let’s add some pepper that’s about 1/2 a teaspoon. It’s crumbling well right now. After its crumbled pretty well I’m going to add my onion and now my green pepper and now we’re going to mix that together and that onion and pepper are gonna cook with that ground beef. I like this recipe instead of hamburgers because if you’ve got a big family. You need a whole lot of cooking services to have the dinner serve at the same time. If you make a batch of sloppy joes you can call in the kids when you’re ready to serve them and not have to worry about when the food’s ready to serve them. This will stay warm for a long time so you only need to brown it for like 10 minutes. I can smell it and I can hear the crackle that is browning there’s a beautiful color coming into that.
8So get all the pieces off the bottom and add one cup of ketchup. Oh huh, I was going to make a really sloppy I think. Stir that in and you’re going to see that consistency but it needs a little more sauce. So now I’m going to add some more water here comes one cup of water, now after the water we’re going to add one tablespoon or more as a case maybe of mustard that gives it some extra tang. I’m using yellow mustard but you can use Dijon or dry mustard. Oh that smells just great.
9Turn it down a medium at this point or it’s going to burn on the bottom and bubble over. So that’s going to cook down with another maybe 10-15 minutes until it’s the perfect consistency you want in your sandwich and just spoon it on your bun, oh I thought I start with some green beans just as I was only today and there is your sloppy gel.That is sloppy, that tastes delicious better than the canned version you made homemade and you made it in 30 minutes.
