Dan’s Sloppy Joe's

I’ve gotten many requests for Dan’s Sloppy Joe recipe. He’s made these several times, and they’re always amazing. Seriously. These aren’t your mama’s Sloppy Joe’s!

Dans Sloppy Joe’s

1 1/2 pounds ground beef

1 white onion, diced

1/2 green pepper, diced

1 tsp. Paprika

1 tsp. Garlic powder

1 tsp. Onion powder

1 tsp. Turmeric

Salt + pepper to taste

1/2 C. Brown sugar

1 can Rotel, drained

3-4 T. Mustard

1/2 C. BBQ sauce

1-2 Adobe peppers (Goya brand in the can)

In a large skillet over medium high heat, add a few tablespoons of olive oil. Add the onion and green pepper. Stir and cook until soft. About 5 to 7 minutes. Add the ground beef and cook through. Add the seasonings and remaining ingredients. Serve immediately, or transfer to a crock pot and set on low until ready to serve. The flavors become more intense if allowed to set a few hours.


Dan adds 2 cups freshly grated cheddar cheese, just before serving. Stir well until melted.

Serve on toasted Brioche Buns with sweet pickles.
