A craving for something from the Wayback Machine hit me yesterday as I was shopping for what to cook for dinner last night, and that craving won out for tonight…Sloppy Joe’s. Or a form thereof.
So that’s WWFD tonight…about 3/4 lb. ground beef and a link of sweet Italian sausage squozen out of its casing (yes, I know it’s not traditional) was sauteed with diced onion and red bell pepper and drained. Added back to the saute pan and stirred in one 8 oz. can of tomato sauce, 2 Tbsp of BBQ sauce, 1 Tbsp of tomato paste, 1 Tbsp brown sugar, 1 Tbsp of Worcestershire sauce, 1 crushed garlic clove, 1 tsp dry ground mustard, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp Aleppo pepper.
Stirred it all together and let it simmer, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Served it on a lightly toasted Brioche bun, with deviled eggs and a potato salad with minced celery and chopped egg and a honey-mustard-tarragon dressing alongside.
And wine. Overall, not bad.
