Sloppy Joes by Evelyn (Fall 2012)

Submitted by: EJOY-EVELYN

Introduction

Makes for deliciously tangy barbecues that I love to eat on light toasted buns in an open face style. Makes for deliciously tangy barbecues that I love to eat on light toasted buns in an open face style.
Number of Servings: 19

Ingredients

    2 lbs ground chuck (80/20) (browned and degreased [ie with pressing of paper towels] to 1.5 lbs low-fat chuck)
    2 t salt
    1/2 tsp pepper
    2 t garlic powder

    1 t olive oil
    1 lb onion, diced
    1/2 lb celery, diced

    6 oz tomato paste
    128 grams (1/2 cup or 8 T) Baby Ray's Award BBQ Sauce
    6 oz water
    40 gr/8 t yellow mustard
    2 T packed brown sugar (1/8 cup)
    30 gr/6 t/2 T worchestershire sauce

Directions

1) Brown ground chuck with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Defat on paper plates or paper toweling (save any yum yums from the pan for sauce; if not burnt)
2) In heated oil, saute onions and celery until tender
3) Combined all and heat until hot. Eat immediately or chill. Will actually taste even better if it can set for a while or day in refrigerator for flavors to meld. If you cook too long after assembled, the BBQ sauce gets a burnt flavoring (like coffee left on a stove . . . not a pleasant smell for coffee/barbecue sauce aficionado)

Makes 19 (1/4 cup or 2.67 oz) servings.

I like to cook in bulk, making 3-4 lbs at one time. Freeze some for a pasta hotdish later. Lots of great uses.
