I hadn't made any sloppy joes in about 4 months, so I figured it was about time to do some tweaking to the delicious recipe. Here it is!
1 lb ground hamburger
2 Tbsp Butter
3 Carrots (Peeled & Minced)
3 Garlic cloves (minced)
2 Celery Stalks (Minced)
1 Tbsp Vinegar
1/2 Tbsp Crushed Red Pepper
1/2 Tbsp Thyme
1 Tbsp Brown Sugar Bourbon Grill Mate (or another great steak seasoning)1/2 Tbsp Parsley
3 Tbsp Brown Sugar
3 Tbsp Tomato Paste
1/2 Cup Ketchup
1/2 Cup BBQ sauce (Hickory Mesquite Smoke for a delicious smokey flavor)
Brown the hamburger. Drain and set aside.
In a separate pan add the Butter, minced carrots and garlic and saute' for 2-3 minutes. Add the minced celery and cook for another minute. Add the Vinegar and seasoning and cook for another minute or two to thoroughly season the veggies. Add all remaining ingredients and thoroughly mix. Add the hamburger to the mixture and simmer for about 15 minutes. Sauce will be ready to serve. Serve on your favorite bun, roll or bread for the best eating experience.
