It's February you guys! I can't believe that the days are just flying by. I hope your month is off to a great start.
We grilled burgers last night since the weather in Southern California has been sunny the past few days. I love the rain and all and we surely need it, but it's nice to be able to go outside for a change.
Every time I buy ground sirloin I ponder on what to do with the extra hamburger meat. I usually gravitate toward a nice meat sauce for spaghetti or even some Sloppy Joes as a last minute thought. Which led me to today's recipe. Sloppy Joe Sliders!
SLOPPY JOE SLIDERS
This is the perfect solution for my Super Bowl menu this Sunday. Sliders are great snacks and sloppy joe sliders are super easy to make! Who doesn't love a good sloppy joe? All the guys and even my girlfriends are going to love them.
Served with some mini pizzas, my homemade salsa and avocado dips, and a nice healthy green salad to round it out and I'm done.
I used my standard sloppy joe recipe below and found the best little slider buns at a local butcher shop but Hawaiian rolls will work perfectly as well.
Take it easy on yourself this game day and make these quick and easy Sloppy Joe Sliders, they'll be gobbled up in no time!
Sloppy Joe Sliders
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
kosher salt and ground pepper
1 pound ground beef
1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
12 slider rolls, split (toasted optional)
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until soft about 5 to 7 minutes. Add garlic and stir 30 seconds.
Add ground beef to skillet. Cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until it is no longer pink, 6 to 8 minutes.
Stir 3/4 can of tomato sauce to start and Worcestershire sauce into beef mixture in skillet. Taste for flavoring. Add more tomato sauce or Worcestershire sauce to adjust flavor to your liking. Simmer until thickened, stirring occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes.
Season the mixture with more salt and pepper, if desired. Spoon onto toasted slider buns, and serve.
