My husband has permanently etched this song in my head. Once you listen to it, all you’ll hear from now on is “SLOPPY JOES, SLOP-SLOPPY JOES …” every time you see the words “sloppy joes”. FOREVER.
We had a lazy night last week and neither of us wanted to put much effort into either cooking or going to the grocery store. The result was these modified sloppy joes, and they were pretty good. This recipe makes two large sloppy joe sandwiches, but you can easily multiply the recipe to suit your appetite.
1/2 cup ketchup or barbecue sauce
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon Worcestershire (wooster) sauce
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon paprika (we used Hungarian paprika, but I don’t really know what the difference is)
1 tablespoon brown sugar.
