Sweet & Saucy Sloppy Joes

By:Kim B

1 small onion or 1/2 minced

2 cloves of garlic smashed & minced

Olive oil, butter 

Salt & pepper

1lb of ground beef & 1lb  ground pork

8 oz tom sauce or 24 oz crushed tomatoes for extra saucy

1 heaping tomato paste 

1 tbsp of Worcester or soy sauce

1 tsp smoke paprika & oregano

1/4 tsp cloves

1 tsp salt & pepper

1/2 cup brown sugar

-cook onions and garlic in the butter and oil over medium heat until onions start to turn color. Add meat and cook until brown. Drain off excess oil but  2 tbsp 

-stir in tomato paste and remaining ingredients. Simmer on low for 3-5 minutes. 

Kim’s Tip: toast the buns and they will be less likely to break or get soggy when topped with sloppy Joes. 

To kick it up: sprinkle with cheese and garnish with butter pickles.
