Sloppy Joes, really?

Sloppy Joes
I have heard Americans order this countless times on TV shows but I must admit I've never really been sure what they were, until today. A French TV cook made them, not often that the French look to the anglophiles for inspiration but it certainly got my mouth watering, so I gave them a try. Not the easiest thing to eat, but oh so worth the mess!


1 tblsp olive oil
500g/1 lb minced beef
1 large onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
2 tblsp mustard
1 tblsp brown sugar
5 tblsp ketchup
1/2 tsp salt
6 hamburger buns


1.In a large frying pan heat the oil
2.Add the onion, pepper and beef
3.Stir until the beef browns
4.Drain off the excess fat
5.Add the ketchup, mustard, sugar and salt
6.Simmer for 20 -30 mins or until most of the moisture is absorbed
7.Spoon the mixture into the burger buns

Serves : 6 or 3 if 2 each
Preparation time : 5 mins
Cooking time : 20 - 30 mins
