I’ve been meaning to post this one for awhile. I make it fairly often, especially when I need a quick dinner to make that I know will be a hit. I’m teaching a class on 30 minute dinners next week and this will definitely be on the hand outs! I’ll be sharing the recipe for the soft brioche buns I serve them on soon, but you can also just serve on your favorite rolls or hamburger buns.
BEST EVER SLOPPY JO’S
Recipe by My Stained Apron
1 tsp vegetable oil
1 large onion, chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
3 stalks celery, chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
2 lbs ground beef
2 T flour
3 T tomato paste
1/2 cup ketchup
1 cup BBQ Sauce
2 T Worcestershire
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
pepper and salt to taste
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
Add onion and celery, cook until softened, about 3-5 minutes.
Add beef, stirring to break up. Cook until cooked through and no longer pink.
Add flour and tomato paste. Stir well and cook for about 1 minute.
Add remaining ingredients, let simmer until sauce thickens slightly, about 5-10 minutes.
Serve on buns with shredded cheddar cheese.
