The other day I went to my fridge - only to be met by the package of hamburger I had bought days earlier! I didn't have the foggiest idea what to do with it but knew I had to make it THAT day! I went to my old stand-by - Allrecipes.com - and browsed. I finally decided to do a sloppy joe. I pulled a recipe off the net - only to find I only had about half the ingredients I needed. This is what I pulled out of my fridge and pantry to make one pretty good sloppy joe!
Rindy's Sloppy Joe's 1 pound ground beef 1 small sweet onion 1 garlic clove, minced 1 (6 oz) can tomato paste 4 Tablespoons salsa 3/4 cup ketchup 3 Tablespoons brown sugar 3 Tablespoons soy sauce 6 hamburger buns
In a skillet, cook beef, onions and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in tomato paste, ketchup, brown sugar, salsa and soy sauce; mix well. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spoon about 1/2 cup meat mixture onto each bun.
I served with deviled eggs and got high fives from all my family!
