Boogaloo Wonderland Sandwich

Based on a just watched “Cook’s Country” S14 E7, anyone here make these?

I love Sloppy Joes, and have experimented many times with the sauce, only to come back several times to a doctored Manwich sauce.

The sandwich in this episode seems to be the ultimate sloppy joe. Thoughts?

If any of you are interested… and can’t view this episode, lemmeno and I will post the recipe. But it is ground beef cooked with a thinly sliced onion, and the sauce is ketchup, cider vinegar, Worcester sauce, brown sugar, spices, and maybe something else I can’t recall.

But it looked great… and seems to be a thing.

I also saw that, and it looks delicious, but I've never made it. But I think I will be making it, for a friend of mine, with some of that venison he gave me! I recorded it, and is one I didn't delete afterwards.

tried to open it. it said I needed to register. I tried and it wouldn't let me. Please post the recipe.

i previously posted my own recipe, and the few who tried it loved it, even a lady who said she hated sloppy joes until she tried my recipe. I'm curious to see how this recipe compares.

Thanks. This recipe is similar to my own, with a few additions to mine. Hrere it is for comparison:

Chef's Sloppy Joes

Ingredients:
1‑4 oz. can tomato paste
1‑6 oz can Tomato Sauce
1‑12 oz. can dark red kidney beans
˝ clove minced garlic
˝ medium yellow onion, diced
3 heaping tbs. chopped green pepper
1/4 cup dark brown sugar (for Diabetics, substitute an equal
amount of Splenda brand sweetener and a tsp. of molasses)
1 tsp. Chili Powder
˝ tsp. Salt
1 tbs. Worcestershire Sauce
1 bay leaf, crumbled
2 tbs. olive oil
1 lb. ground beef

.I believe both are better than the canned stuff.

Something I don't see in that recipe is the cheese at the end - they topped it with cheese, and broiled them briefly.

Was this something added by CC, so it's not in the original recipe?

IIRC, it was American cheese on a hoagie roll. Both things I would never do for a sloppy joe.

Not sure what you mean by “CC”. What I posted was the original recipe from the PBS program. I only included the sauce and meat cause I figure folks will add what they like and not be compelled to go with cheese and a hoagie roll.

That was Cook's County I meant, by CC.

I made a casserole with that Boogaloo meat sauce, instead of sandwiches. I made it with venison, and instead of the dried garlic in the sauce, I used 2 large cloves, pressed into the meat, towards the end of the browning, about 2 minutes before adding the sauce. I cooked some brown basmati rice and oat groats together, and rinsed a can of dark red kidney beans, and mixed that into the grains, and put that into a 2 qt casserole. I spread the meat sauce on the casserole, then I topped it with some shredded queso panela - a mild Mexican cheese that browns well, and has a slightly buttery flavor.
