Believe it or not, I have never made Sloppy Joes! I have seen the can of it in the grocery store and heard that some people do like it, but I’m sorry I could never buy. It just looks gross. I never really wanted to even attempt at making it, as it just does not seem appetizing to me. But I then came across this recipe from Rachel Ray, which sounded really good with lots of smoky flavor, which I love. So I made this for me and my love and OMG! This was really delicious and definitely one for the cookbook. I did tweak it a little, but I hope you try it and feel free to tweak it to your liking. Enjoy!
1 lb ground beef
Salt and Peper
2 Serrano or Jalepeno chile peppers, finely chopped
3-4 Cloves garlic, chopped
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 1/2 Teaspoons ground cumin
1 1/2 Teaspoons ground coriander
1 Cup lager beer, at room temperature
1 Cup tomato sauce
1 Tablespoon light brown sugar
2 Tablespoons worcestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon hot sauce
In a large skillet add the ground beef and cook, stirring with a spoon to crumble it, until well browned; season with a little salt and black pepper. Add the chiles, garlic, chili powder, cumin and coriander. Cook, stirring for approximately 2 minutes.
In a medium bowl, stir together the beer, tomato sauce, brown sugar, worcestershire, vinegar and hot sauce. Pour the mixture over the meat, lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes or until ready to serve.
Spoon the Sloppy Joe mixture onto your roll. Yummy!
