Even though it is fall it's still HOT around here. We just can't seem to get a break. I'm missing the windy blustery days of October that remind me of football and Halloween. So to roll with the flow we are still grilling. YEP we are.
The other day I broke out a package of ground sirloin and we made some wonderful burgers and fries. Whenever we do that I'm pressed to come up with something different to use the leftover ground sirloin. I typically make a batch of goulash, or spaghetti sauce...but I was in the mood for something simple, yet delish!
Today's recipe is a twist on my Old School Sloppy Joes. Sloppy Guiseppe's is an Italian variation of the same satisfying sandwich. Filled with Italian sauce, garlic and spices...oh and gooey melted cheese, these are hard to resist!
They are the perfect game day meal. Comforting, homey, and just messy enough to be fun. Guys love them! Just serve them along with some chips and a salad or fruit and you have a wonderful hearty meal. And...I think they will be the perfect meal to serve the kiddos prior to going trick or treating this Halloween!
What do you make with your leftover ground sirloin??
2 T olive oil
1/2 c diced onion
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 lb of ground sirloin
3 c jarred tomato basil spaghetti sauce - or your favorite variety
1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
4 Kaiser rolls, toasted
1 c fresh mozzarella cheese, shredded
Add the olive oil to a large skillet. Heat over medium heat. Add you dice onion and cook about 5 minutes until softened. Add the garlic and ground sirloin. Cook, stirring the meat to crumble it about 7-8 minutes or until no longer pink.
Add the spaghetti sauce, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, and heat until bubbly and sauce starts to thicken. About 5-6 minutes.
Divide the meat mixture among the 4 bottom toasted rolls. Add 1/4 cup of shredded cheese over the meat mixture and top with the top bun.
