Semi's Sloppy Joe Sauce
grown up sloppy joes!
Servings: 4 to 6
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 to 1 ½ pounds ground chicken, turkey or beef
  • 1 large onion, diced *** See Notes
  • 1 small to medium green bell pepper, diced *** See Notes
  • 1 tablespoon fresh minced garlic or from a jar ***See Notes
  • 1 8 ounce can tomato puree or sauce (sauce will make it a bit thinner)
  • ¼ to ½ cup KC Masterpiece barbecue sauce or your favorite barbecue sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown mustard (I used stone ground)
  • 1/8 cup ketchup
  • 1/8 cup white vinegar
  • 2-4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons sriracha  (optional)
  1. 1. Preheat a skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil, onion and bell pepper.  Cook stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes.  Add garlic and ground meat and sauté until meat is just done.
  2. 2. When meat is done add the remaining ingredients.  Cook and stir until heated through and vinegar is cooked down, about 5 to 10 minutes.
  • ***Notes: I like to mince the veggies up in a mini prep or food processor so that they are a bit smaller. But what ever size you like is best. 
  • (For a Sloppier Joe, use tomato sauce in place of the puree)
