Just made these yummy sloppy joe’s (or Sloppy O’s as I decided to call them). A classic diner treat, which never disappoints!
This is a super easy recipe, that can work for brunch or a road trip, and doesn’t really take much time to make.
Start off with adding ground beef with finely chopped onions to a frying pan, with a little olive oil and start cooking on medium heat. As the beef cooks, start breaking & crumbling it so it’s in its smallest form possible and not patty up.
Add the garlic & once all the beef is browned (as in ‘not red anymore’), add some water and let it simmer for a minute as you stir.
Next, add brown sugar & stir into the beef.
Once sugar dissolves (less than a minute) add the ketchup, mustard & Worcester sauce (key ingredients here).
Beef should now start reducing, keep stirring all the ingredients to coat all the beef as it continues cooking.
Keep stirring for a few minutes till the beef thickens and holds up the beef quite well on a spoon.
And you’re done 🙂 slice up some burger buns, stuff them with the cooked & deliciously marinated beef and SERVE!
- 1/2 kilo ground beef
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 cup water
- 2 tbsp ketchup
- 2 tbsp mustard
- 2 tbsp Worcester sauce
- Burger buns (quantity depends on bun size), this recipe made about 18 sliders.
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- Add ground beef & diced onions to a saucepan with the olive oil & cook on medium-high heat
- Keep breaking the beef as you cook to have it as crumbled as possible
- Keep stirring and mixing the onions in with the beef, then add minced garlic when it’s halfway cooked through, and salt & pepper to taste
- Once beef starts to cook & brown, add in the cup of water and bring down heat to let it simmer
- Keep stirring till water reduces the half, then add in ketchup, mustard & Worcester sauce.
- Now you should start seeing and smelling your sloppy joe’s at this stage, keep stirring & cooking as the beef starts to thicken and very little water is left (about 5 minutes)
- Scoop out some of the beef mixture with a spoon, if it holds well together you’re good to go!
- Take off heat & start filling your burger buns & serve!
