Sloppy Joes are a camp food favourite, and along with Bunsen Burner grill cheese, I distinctly remember chowing down on these yummy hot sandwiches at Girl Guide Camp. Easy & fast to make, they’re guaranteed to be a tasty and filling meal for a large group. But I couldn’t just do a regular ol’ Sloppy Joe…so I thought, how about sriracha Sloppy Joes? After all, I add it to everything else I eat!
Sriracha Sloppy Joes & Ramen
- 1 pound ground pork
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1 medium yellow onion finely diced
- 1 medium green pepper cored and finely diced
- 1 can low sodium crushed tomatoes
- ½ cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons prepared yellow mustard
- ¼ cup raw honey
- ¼ cup sriracha or to taste
- ½ cup low sodium beef broth *optional
- salt and pepper to taste
- 12 multigrain Kaiser buns
Heat a large pot over medium gas. When the pot is nice and hot, add the ground pork and beef, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon. Cook the meat until just grey in colour. Add the onion and green pepper and cook until tender. Drain off extra liquids from pot if necessary.
Stir in the crushed tomatoes, soy sauce and honey. Add garlic powder, mustard, honey and sriracha. Cook at a low simmer for 30 minutes. Add up to a half a cup low sodium beef broth if the mixture is too thick.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Toast Kaiser buns.
Serve one large scoop in between each bun. Serve with extra sriracha on the side.
Got leftovers? My friend thought up the most brilliant idea the following day. Add your leftover Sloppy Joe mix to some instant ramen noodles. Spicy noodle goodness!
