Why serve ordinary sloppy joes when you can wow your friends and family with these hot & spicy "Super Joes" instead! You can make this a day ahead and refrigerate, then reheat when ready to serve. This recipe makes 4 hearty servings and you can double it.
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 cup chopped sweet onion
1 to 2 Tbs chopped jalapeno peppers
2 cloves garlic or Hot Pickled Garlic, minced
1 cup tomato juice, regular or hot & spicy
1/2 cup spicy ketchup, such as Melinda's Ketchups or Burning Asphalt Ketchups
2 Tbs brown sugar
1 Tbs mustard
2 tsp chili powder, regular or hot
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
Combine the ground beef, onions, garlic and jalapenos in a large skillet and cook until the beef is brown and the onion is tender. While the meat is cooking, stir together the remaining ingredients in a bowl to make a sauce. Once the meat is thoroughly cooked, drain off the excess fat and return the skillet to the stove. Add the sauce, stir to combine, cover and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 20 to 30 minutes - if the mixture seems too dry you can add a little water. Serve on hamburger buns with your favorite toppings if desired.
Operation Sauce Drop is our non-profit program that sends free gift boxes of sauce to US military personnel stationed abroad. To date, we've shipped over 1,040 free gift boxes to our deployed military, at absolutely NO cost to them. The troops greatly appreciate the free sauces, as you can see from their thank-you notes & photos. Our cost to purchase and ship each free gift box generally runs from $20 to $25, and 100% of all donations received are used SOLELY to pay for the cost of the sauces & shipping. Carolina Sauce pays for all the overhead of the program and also for a portion of the costs of each gift box. Send a soldier a taste of home by donating to Operation Sauce Drop. You can also shop to support Operation Sauce Drop, where some or all of the purchase price of the products goes straight into Operation Sauce Drop (you get the products you order, and the money you pay is used to send free sauce to the troops). Our troops will thank you for your support!
