Sloppy Joes: An Awesome Party Food
I found this recipe on the Food Network (http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/guy-fieri/sloppy-joes-with-maui-onion-straws-recipe/index.html Recipe courtesy Guy Fieri for Food Network Magazine) and it is AWESOME!
This is great for any football party, kid’s sleep-over party, poker night party, AND pot-luck party! You name it, this dish will be the hit of the party!
I have always doubled this recipe because I hope/pray for leftovers! It has a heat factor to it, so if you don’t like spicy, leave out the cayenne pepper and the jalapeno! Also, if you go to the link I provided above, the recipe on the link includes home-made Maui Onion Straws. I leave that part out and use the French Onion strings instead.
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
- 1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced
- 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded, deveined and diced
- 1 red onion, diced

- 1 pound ground pork
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 1/4 cup red wine
- 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1 6-ounce can tomato paste
- 1 1/2 cups tomato sauce
- 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Prepare the Sloppy Joe’: In a large pan, sauté over medium-high heat,
- Sauté in the canola oil the bell peppers, jalapeno and onion for 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in another pan, cook the ground beef and pork and break it up as it browns. After it is cooked, drain the grease.
- Add the beef and pork to the sautéed peppers, jalapeno and onions.
- Add the minced garlic.
- Stir in the red wine and the red vinegar
- Add the remaining ingredients: cayenne pepper, paprika, ground cumin, dry mustard, tomato paste, tomato sauce, brown sugar Worcestershire sauce, and season with 1 tablespoon each salt and freshly ground pepper.

Serve the Sloppy Joes on Hawaiian rolls and top with the onion straws.
