Sloppy Joes

Use an equal measure of ground pork and our fresh green onion sausage, casing removed, for a kicker blend


For the Sauce

18-ounce can tomato sauce

½ cup ketchup

1½ tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard

½ teaspoon dry mustard

1 garlic clove, finely minced

Hot sauce, to taste

Salt & pepper, to taste

For the Meat

1 pound 80/20 ground chuck or 90/10 ground sirloin

½ small onion, finely chopped

6 hamburger buns


In a saucepan over low heat combine all the sauce ingredients. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Mix well and let simmer while preparing the meat.

Heat a large, heavy nonstick or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef and sauté, stirring occasionally, for 4 to 5 minutes, or until the meat is no longer pink. Turn the meat out into a large strainer or colander lined with paper towels, and allow the fat to drain off.

Add the onion to the same skillet and sauté, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes, or until the onion is translucent. Return the meat to the pan, and add the sauce. Heat for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste, and season with more salt and pepper if desired. Spoon ½ cup of the mixture over each bun. Serve immediately.
