Sloppy Joes Burger

Happy Sunday! The weather has been great lately. My girlfriend and I decided to take a walk at the tracks and we walked about 10 laps (almost 3 miles), which felt great! Maxi also decided to join us in this beautiful weather. After the walk, of course, my body started craving some food and I decided to make something easy. What came to mind was sloppy joes burgers!!! :) What can possibly be easier to make than this?

On a side note, in the Chinese culture, we also have our own version of sloppy joes called the "Rou Jia Mo." It basically means "meat burger." It is a street food that originated from the north of China, specifically from Xi'an in Shaanxi Province and is now popular in all of China. Pork or lamb is usually the meat chosen.

Enjoy my sloppy joes! (They always remind me of elementary school as they used to serve this in the school cafeteria - great memories!) :)

The end result of my simple to make sloppy joes
Maxi enjoying his walk on the tracks as well.
All the ingredients you need. I also added a bit of Sriracha sauce to give it a kick of spiciness (forgot to add it in picture).
A total of about 2 lbs of ground beef
Some garlic and pepper
Any BBQ sauce will do, some pasta sauce, and Worcestershire sauce (if you don't have this, that is fine)
Chopped up garlic and pepper
Sautee the garlic and peppers first
Add in the ground beef
Cook till brown, constantly mixing
Add in the BBQ sauce, pasta sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce
Keep simmering and you will see it thicken

Serving: 8

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 green bell pepper, chopped
4-6 garlic cloves, minced
Salt and pepper
2 pounds ground beef
8 oz of pasta sauce
8 oz of BBQ sauce
1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce, optional
hot sauce, optional
8 hamburger buns

Add some oil in a large skillet on high heat. Add the bell peppers and garlic. Saute until tender, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Add the ground beef to the garlic and pepper. Stir and cook about 8 minutes or until the meat is no longer pink and is browned. Then add the pasta sauce, BBQ sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce into the skillet. Continue to stir and simmer until thickened, about 8-10 minutes. Once done, serve on hamburger bun. Enjoy!
