Sloppy Beyond Joe

Slop it on a bun. Or on a biscuit if you must.

First, a recipe for a really good Sloppy Joe sauce. Because we know the stuff in the can just ain't what it used to be (though we also know we USE it when we run out of time).

Sloppy Joe

2 cups red pepper
2 cups onion, diced
1 garlic clove, pressed or finely chopped
3 cups tomato sauce
6 tbsp tomato paste
4 cups beef broth
1/4 cup sugar
4 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp chile powder
3 tbsp butter

Put it in the crock pot and let it do its thing on low for most of the day. Add cooked ground beef when the vegetables are tender.


So what else can be sloppy?

  • Sloppy Taco - You guessed it, taco meat on the bun.
  • Sloppy Stew - Takes a good thick stew. Don't forget the tomato in the stew, it is what makes the flavor bold.
  • Sloppy Jose - Chili over the bun. Add some more meat if the chili is wimpy.
  • Sloppy Summer Sausage - Requires a good summer sausage with some tang. Chop it up small, and put it in the Sloppy Joe sauce.
  • Sloppy Clucker - Mix a can of tomato soup with your 2 cups of Sloppy Joe sauce. Takes about 4 cups of chopped chicken in that.
  • Sloppy Gobbler - Turkey gravy, chopped cooked turkey, with drained diced tomatoes in it.
  • Sloppy King - Gravy with meat in it, and drained diced tomatoes, plus mixed vegetables.
  • Sloppy Rooter - Cook your ground pork with a nice sprinkling of Redmond Real Salt Seasoning Salt. DRAIN the fat (I know, but this time it matters). Add Sloppy Joe sauce.
  • Sloppy Sailor - Manhattan clam chowder base, thickened with flour or cornstarch, with clams, scallops, shrimp, crab,, cod, or other seafood. Chicken or pork may also be added.
  • Sloppy Deer - 1 pint jar of venison chunks, heated in 1 tbsp of butter until the juice reduces down, then add 1 can Sloppy Joe sauce.
  • Sloppy Giovanni - Cooked Hamburger mixed with spaghetti sauce. Top with cheese just to be daring.
  • Sloppy Barbie - BBQ beef, pork, or chicken on the bun, melted cheese over the top.
  • Sloppy Spuds - Regular Sloppy Joe over Potatoes, or with Potato chunks stirred in. Works over hash browns also.
  • Campy Joe - Sloppy Joe over biscuits.
  • Pepper Joe - Sloppy Joe tucked into raw green, red, or yellow pepper halves, and topped with CHEESE.
