Recipe - Sloppy Joes

I was thinking of making burgers for my sport-a-thon but felt that would be a bit common. So, Sloppy Joes it is instead.

First off I was making just normal Sloppy Joes but I decided to freestyle it a bit. I had some of my pulled pork in the freezer so I thought I'd add that as well as the mince. Good thinking! :)

Chopped onion (I used 4 onions)
Chopped garlic
Mince (I used 800g)
Pulled pork (optional, I used about 400g)
Crushed tomatoes
Red Wine Vinegar
Yellow Mustard
Hot water

To serve
Grated Cheese (I used Canadian Cheddar to keep with the hockey theme)
Chopped Onion
Buns (grilled until a bit crispy)
Hot Sauce (I used Cholula, which is awesome)
Twice cooked fries

Start by sweating the onion and garlic until they are translucent, adding oregano half way through the process. Once translucent, put to the side and reserve.

Then start browning the mince, adding the pork once the mince is browned and most of the liquid from it has evaporated. Add tomatoes, vinegar, water and mustard. Stir well to combine.

Let this mixture simmer away until you it has reached the consistency you want.

Serve it by putting it on the grilled buns, topping with cheese, onion and hot sauce.


The onions are sweated and ready. Just waiting for the mince to get it's arse into gear.

The mince is done and the pork just jumped into the pan.

The wet ingredients have been added and it's time to stir things up.

Simmering and stewing...

The sides, including the lovely Cholula.
