From the Vault: I’m biting the bullet today and doing some serious organizing in my kitchen, so here is a little something from my old site. I know it’s not much of a post but the recipe is awesome, I highly recommend it.
- ~1 lb ground beef or turkey
- 1 cup diced onion
- 1 cup diced orange peppers
- 2 cloves of minced garlic
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- 1 tbl red wine vinegar
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1/2 tsp dry ground mustard
- 1 8 oz can tomato sauce (plain)
- 8 oz diced green chilies (2 of those little cans)
- salt and pepper to taste
Brown the onions then add the garlic and saute till fragrant, about 30 seconds. You can saute the peppers here too, if you like them very soft. Add the beef and brown it well. Add the chilies, tomato sauce, sugar, vinegar and spices. Let simmer, stirring occasionally, over medium-low heat for 10-15 minutes or until as thick as you like. Add the peppers at the end to keep a fresher flavor and crispier texture.
Just a quickie today kids. Hands up, who likes sloppy joes? Yeah, I thought so, they’re a good time. I originally made this with ground turkey, to lighten it up a bit, but it’s even better with beef. The green chilies add a mellow spiciness to it and change it up just enough so it’s not the same old sloppy joe. I also like to add the orange peppers at the very end so they stay a little crispy and give a brighter, more fresh taste. No step by steps I’m afraid, but the process is as simple as you can ask for. So if you’re looking to change up your joes, try adding some green chilies! It’s some wicked good stuff.
