A Recipe Your Wife Or Girlfriend Might Not Enjoy

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.
