Sloppy Joe’s – Neely Style

Posted on: December 10, 2010

I saw the Neelys make this on a recent episode of their TV show and decided that I needed to try it. It was a delicious, easy weeknight meal. The original recipe calls for both a red and green pepper, but I only had green so I added an onion. I also halved the recipe, but used the whole amount of veggies.

1 Tablespoon oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 pound lean ground beef
4 oz tomato sauce (from an 8 oz can)
1 1/2 Tablespoons tomato paste
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1/2 Tablespoon Worcestershire
couple of dashes hot sauce (we’re wimps–you could use 1/2 teaspoon if you’re not)
hamburger buns or bread for serving

Heat oil in dutch oven or large skillet. Add the onion, bell pepper, and garlic and cook until tender. Add the meat to the pan and cook until browned. Stir in the remaining ingredients and simmer until thickened. Serve on hamburger buns or bread.
