Wink In the kitchen...

Just joined up. Looks like lots of fun and good sharing of experience in the kitchen. I need a good recipe for sloppy joes. Oh, over the years I've done my share of making those joes, but I'm looking for a recipe to really hit one over the wall, you know?

I'm not a SJ fan, hubby likes them but he eats the stuff out of a can. Sorry I can't help you, but just wanted to welcome you to DC!

Sloppy J's

Hi Uncle Bob! Thank ye for the welcome.

Well, today I'm using what's at hand. That would be ground round, but I do like to mix pork and beef for the punched up flavor. I've got the meat browning with diced onion, green bell pepper, celery and eventually I'll add some diced garlic. As for the rest of the mix, Oh Uncle B, I'm flying by the seat of my pants! I have some wild ideas! I'm looking for a home run here, but I may end up with a foul ball.

Do you add chili sauce, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, mustard, brown sugar, or vinegar? Those things really add to the flavor too.

Yes, I add a good sprinkle of the dry rub I make for ribs, and all those other ingredients, but thanks for reminding me about the vinegar! I use a mild rice vinegar that works just great with salad, baked beans, etc.

The ball is out of the park...

Thank ye all very kindly for all your welcomes. The Sloppy J's were a sell out and a home run. Now making them from the can is no sin; it's just easier and faster and we all need that sometimes. However, fellow culinary wizards, I just can't each a sandwich that tells me it's a manwich. You know? Just wrong. Who was the marketing wizard that dreamed that name up?
