It's Super...

When watching an episode of Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off on Food Network Sloppy Joes were made for a kid's party and Ryan had the craving for Sloppy Joes.  So we went to the computer to find a recipe for Sloppy Joes.  We looked at a few recipes and narrowed it down to a Rachael Ray recipe and a Guy Fieri recipe which is kind of funny.


This recipe is perfect for when you want to feel like a kid again.  Also I would make this when I have kids in the future.  We decided to not buy buns but use whole wheat sliced bread that worked just as well.

Here is Rachael Ray's Super Sloppy Joes Recipe

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, 1 turn of the pan
1 1/4 pounds ground beef sirloin
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons to 1 tablespoon steak seasoning blend, such as McCormick brand Montreal Seasoning
1 medium onion, chopped
1 small red bell pepper, chopped
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 cups tomato sauce
2 tablespoons tomato paste
4 crusty rolls, split, toasted, and lightly buttered
Garnish: sliced ripe tomatoes, pickles, Deviled Potato Salad, recipe follows

Directions:
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add oil and meat to the pan. Spread the meat around the pan and begin to break it up. Combine brown sugar and steak seasoning. Add sugar and spice mixture to the skillet and combine. When the meat has browned, add onion and red peppers to the skillet. Reduce heat to medium and cook onions, peppers, red wine vinegar and Worcestershire sauce with meat for 5 minutes. Add tomato sauce and paste to pan. Stir to combine. Reduce heat to simmer and cook Sloppy Joe mixture 5 minutes longer. Using a large spoon or ice cream scoop, pile sloppy meat onto toasted, buttered bun bottoms and cover with bun tops.
