Emily’s Famous Sloppy Joes

1 1/2 pounds ground beef

1 onion, chopped

1 red bell pepper, chopped

1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste

1 cup water

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon white vinegar

3 tablespoons brown sugar

2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, saute the ground beef for five minutes. Add the onion and red bell pepper; saute for five more minutes or until onion is tender and beef is browned. Drain. Mix in tomato paste and water, stirring until paste is dissolved. Stir in garlic, chili powder, parika, cumin, vinegar, brown sugar, oregano, salt, and pepper. Continue to heat for five to ten minutes or until mixture is thick. Yield: 8 servings.


Homemade roll recipe

REVIEW:  This made a lot and was very good.  My only complaint:  not “saucy” enough.  I will add a can of tomato sauce (8 oz) to the leftovers next time we eat it.   The spice combination was great–these not-very-sloppy joes had a good flavor.  I used about 1 pound of ground beef, not 1 1/2 as the recipe called for, but I did not reduce any of the other ingredients.  01/21/09
