This is a traditional sloppy joe recipe, with onions, peppers and mushrooms.

Like most recipes, you can adjust it to your own taste. Don’t like peppers, leave them out, or add more if you really love them.

Sloppy joes aren’t usually spicy hot so if you want to maintain the original taste, I wouldn’t add hot sauce.

Sloppy Joes

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup onion, minced
  • 1/2 cup green or red pepper, chopped with seeds and ribs removed
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons chili sauce
  • 8 slightly toasted sandwich buns

Method

Step 1

Sauté the onion and peppers in the butter. When these are translucent, add the beef. Cook and stir until the meat is lightly browned. Add the mushrooms and chili sauce. Season to taste. Cook, uncovered, over low heat until the mushrooms are cooked. Fill the buns with the mixture.

Makes 8 sandwiches.

Others attribute the invention of this sandwich to a restaurant names Sloppy Joe’s in Key West, Florida, which was a favorite hangout of author Earnest Hemmingway. Hemmingway is responsible for the first known appearance of the name “Sloppy Joe” in print.
