Zesty Sloppy Joes

A zesty, saucy version of this delicious sandwich!  Adapted from the Pioneer Woman

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 white onion, diced
  • 1/2 green pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup chili sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp Tabasco sauce (I prefer Marie Sharp's Fiery Hot)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Fresh ground pepper
Serve with: 
Sandwich Rolls, buttered and toasted
1/2 - 1 cup old cheddar, shredded 

Brown ground beef and drain.  Add in onion, green pepper and garlic.

Stir in seasonings and remaining ingredients.  Simmer for 15-20 minutes, or add to a crockpot on low for 2 hours.

Serve on a toasted, buttered sandwich rolls with cheese.  I broiled my cheese on, so you can't see it very well, but it adds a delicious saltiness to the sweet and zesty joes.


And if you happen to have leftovers, try plating them up on top of restaurant style tortilla chips, topped with cheddar and pickled jalepeños ... mmmm mmmm good!
