Beef/ Pork

Classic Sloppy Joe

On the menu today – Sloppy Joe! When was the last time you had a good ole Sloppy Joe? I can’t remember the last time I had one, so I decided to make some. This version has sausage and beef. The sauce turned out tangy and sweet, just how it should be! In addition to the meat, there is plenty of fresh garlic, onions and green pepper.

Next time you make dinner, make a batch of my Sloppy Joes for your family. Don’t worry about making too much, it won’t last!

I couldn’t make this dish without thinking about Adam Sandler’s Lunch Lady Land song. Here’s a link for you, you’re welcome.
