Michelle came over tonight for a screening of State Fair and a ‘state fair smorgasbord’ of corn on the cob, fresh, lightly salted sliced tomatoes and cucumber, and sloppy joes. I concocted the sloppies myself, and I have to say I enjoyed them quite a bit (can’t say the same for Michelle; they had a little too much kick for her). If you have the ingredients handy, maybe you want to give them a try:
- one pound of lean ground beef
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 TSP chipotle seasoning
- 1/2 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce
- 1/8 – 1/4 cup of Secret Stadium Sauce or your favorite sweet/tangy ketchup alternative
Brown your meat, drain the fat. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add 1/2 cup water and chipotle. Stir in until mixed evenly. Add 1/2 cup BBQ sauce. Stir again, mixing evenly. Add Stadium Sauce and stir. Simmer, stirring occasionally until most of the water has evaporated (your meat should start to stick together a bit). Serve on a bun, or like we did, on a GARLIC BREAD BUN.
