NOT YOUR AVERAGE SLOPPY JOES
NOT YOUR AVERAGE SLOPPY JOES
Here are a few more of the recipes I have used over & over again the past 50 + years
CHOW MEIN SLOPPY JOES
A nice change from the standard Sloppy Joe
INGREDIENTS: 1 pound ground beef ½ cup chopped onion 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 (16 oz) can Chop Suey vegetables drained 1/3 cup cold water 3 Tablespoons lite soy sauce 2 Tablespoons cornstarch 8 hamburger buns 1 (3 oz) can chow mien noodles
DIRECTIONS: Combine ground beef & onion; cook until meat is browned & onion tender Add salt & chop suey vegetables. Stir water, soy sauce & cornstarch together; stir into beef mixture. Cook 1-2 minutes until thick and bubbly, stirring to coat vegetables & meat. Split & toast buns, spoon meat mixture on bottom halves; crumble chow mien noodles over top and cover with top half of bun STROGANOFF SLOPPY JOES
Make a pound of hamburger stretch. There were many times I had to do just that.
INGREDIENTS: 1 pound ground beef 1 (10-3/4oz) can cream of mushroom soup ½ teaspoon paprika 4 teaspoons dried onion flakes 4 Tablespoons sour cream 10 small hamburger buns
DIRECTIONS: Brown meat in a large skillet; stir in rest of ingredients. Lower heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spoon about 1/3 cup meat mixture between a hamburger bun
“MAID RITE” SLOPPY JOES
The place that used to make these closed and since my family loved them so much I came up with this.
INGREDIENTS: 1 pound hamburger 1 small onion, chopped 1 can chicken gumbo soup 1 Tablespoon mustard salt & pepper to taste
DIRECTIONS: Brown the hamburger with the chopped onion. Drain off the grease; add rest of the ingredients to the meat mixture. Mix well Put in slow cooker on low and cook for 3 hours or place in a covered baking dish and cook for 2 hours at 300 degrees, stirring every ½ hour
