Ground beef cooked in a spicy tomato sauce, then served on a slice of gluten-free bread.
"Sloppy Joe" is a popular American sandwich. As the name suggests, it is not the greatest in appearance and is somewhat messy to eat, but it is very tasty and always a great hit with children.
|1||onions, finely chopped||200 g|
|2 cloves||garlic, minced|
|1 1/2 tbsp||canola oil||23 mL|
|1/2 tsp||salt||2 g|
|1/2 tsp||cayenne pepper||2 g|
|500 g||ground beef, lean|
|1/4 cup||tomato paste||65 mL|
|1/2 cup||ketchup||125 mL|
|1 tsp||brown sugar||4 g|
|1/4 cup||water||65 mL|
|4 slices||gluten-free bread|
|ground pepper to taste [optional]|
|8 drops||Tabasco sauce [optional]|
- Prepare the vegetables: Finely chop the onion and mince the garlic.
- Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the onion then cook until it is translucent, about 3 min with occasional stirring, paying attention not to let it burn. Add salt, then reduce the heat, cover and cook until the onion is soft, about 5 min. Add the garlic and Cayenne pepper then cook with stirring until fragrant, 1 min.
- Add the beef then cook, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until it loses its pink colour, about 5 min (It is important not to overcook the meat at this point, otherwise it will end up dry and crumbly).
- Season with ground pepper to taste, then add the tomato paste, ketchup, brown sugar, and water. A few drops of Tabasco sauce may be added for extra spiciness. Cover, then simmer 10 min.
- Adjust the seasoning. Spoon the meat mixture onto gluten-free bread slices then serve.
The meat mixture keeps up to 7 days in the refrigerator or up to 2 months in the freezer. To return it to its original consistency, you may need to add a little water when it is reheated.
