Smoked Sloppy Joes are just what the doctor ordered.. well, maybe not the cardiologist but, we did use lean ground sirloin in this so I don’t think he’d be too unhappy😁
A reader, Ed Richard, recommended that I try smoked sloppy joes. He places the ground meat on a screen type tray and stirs it a lot during the cooking process to get plenty of smoke on it.
While I was pondering the idea, it occurred to me that my barbecue sauce contains several of the ingredients that are typically used in homemade sloppy joes such as ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, etc. and what a great way to simplify a recipe and make it quick and easy without having to use a pre-made sauce!
Smokey Sloppy Joe and Provolone!
2 Lbs ground beef cooked and drained
2 cans sloppy joe sauce
( we use Del Monte it has a Smokey bbq flavor ) or you may add a little liquid smoke to your sloppy Joe sauce
2 boxes Texas Toast garlic bread with cheese
Shredded mozzarella cheese/ or sliced provolone
Method of preparation
Preheat oven to 375°
Brown the ground beef and drain, mix in sloppy joe sauce, and simmer for 10 minutes stirring occasionally. On a cookie sheet place garlic toast and bake for 5 minutes. Remove toast from oven and spoon on meat mixture then top with shredded mozzarella or sliced provolone cheese and bake for 7 minutes. I also made two on garlic keto toast.
