The secret to a great Sloppy Joe is a thick, rich sauce that’s not overly saucy – remember, this needs to be eaten in your hands, not with a knife and fork!
15ml (1 Tbsp) oil
1/2 medium onion, peeled and diced
500g lean beef mince
2.5ml (1/2 tsp) salt
2.5ml (1/2 tsp) pepper
5ml (1 tsp) sugar
45ml (3 Tbsp)tomato paste
60ml (1/4 cup)
Spur Smokey Peri Peri Sauce 60ml (1/4 cup) water
250ml (1 cup) grated Cheddar cheese
6 sesame seed burger buns, toasted
Crispy chips, to serve
Heat the oil in a medium pot and add the diced onions. Saute for 2-3 minutes.
Add the beef mince and brown for 3-4 minutes. Add the salt, pepper and tomato paste.
Spur Smokey Peri-Peri Sauce to the mince, followed by the water. Stir well and simmer for 15 minutes or until the sauce has reduced and thickened – but isn’t completely dry.
Add some cheese to the bottom of the sesame burger rolls, top with sloppy joe mince, followed by more cheese and then top the burger bun.
Serve the saucy sloppy joes with crispy chips.
