Sloppy Joe Sandwich
- four hundred fifty g ground beef
- two Tbsp butter
- one small red bell pepper (cut into tiny dice)
- one Onion (finely chopped)
- one garlic clove (chopped)
- eighty ml ketchup
- eighty ml chicken stock
- one tsp Worcestershire sauce
- two tsp chili spice blend (Old El Paso style)
- one Tbsp brown sugar
- four hamburger buns
In hot skillet, heat some butter to brown the onions and peppers. After about 5 minutes, the onions should start to turn translucent. At this point, add the garlic and continue to cook for one or two minutes. Remove from heat and set aside in a container.
In the same skillet, heat the rest of the butter to brown the beef and give it a nice color. A little advice: avoid touching the meat too often... It must have time to cling to the pan a little bit to get its color and not release all its water!
Season the meat with salt and pepper, skim off excess fat and water, then add the onions, bell pepper, garlic, chili mix, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, chicken broth and brown sugar. Let the mixture simmer for fifteen to twenty minutes.
Adjust the taste one last time with salt and pepper, and serve in a lightly toasted hamburger bun..
