Grumpy Style

This looks a little naked, don't you think?

Even under dressed, it looks pretty yummy.  Colorful and saucy with a bit of a tang.

This one is ready for a party though.  All decked out with coleslaw.  Grumpy style.  Makes me want to say "I'll have what he's having." 

The original recipe for these delicious joes are over at Mindika Moments.  I have found myself going to Mindi's blog and drooling often.  She definitely has meals that are Grumpy's style!

Decked out Sloppy Joes 
adapted from Mindika Moment's
1-1/2 lb. ground venison (you can use any ground meat such as turkey, chicken or beef)
1 t. salt
½ t. pepper
1/2 C. carrots, diced
1/2 C. celery, diced
1 large red pepper, diced
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (8oz.) can tomato sauce
1/3 C. ketchup
1-1/2 T. Dijon mustard
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/3 C. brown sugar
2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
In a large skillet heat sprayed with cooking spray, saute carrots, celery, red pepper, garlic, onion and venison.  Cook until venison is done and the veggies are tender.  Season with salt & pepper as they cook.
Add the tomato sauce, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar and vinegar. Stir to combine.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat and allow to simmer for about 5 minutes or until all the flavors come together.
Serve with hamburger buns and top with coleslaw. 


  1. Great idea putting the coleslaw inside! I wish I could have one right now.

  2. I love sloppy joes...I love cole slaw....I love that sandwich!!!!!!
    thanks so much for sharing and making me hungry!

  3. I made sloppy joes last week, but I've never thought of topping them with slaw-sounds good though!
    I'd like a joe now!

  4. This looks and sounds amazing! I'd like mine with the coleslaw too!

  5. That cole slaw on top makes a sloppy joe even sloppier...YUM!

  6. Oh my gosh, now you've got me drooling and craving one of those Sloppy Joes at 0:37 am.... These look absolutely scrumptious, no wonder Grumpy loved them!!!

  7. amazing havent thought of making these in years, my kids use to love them! You not only brought back great memories but an urge to make these again ...looks wonderful thanks for reminding me :)

  8. I have to be a carnicore sometimes too Shelby. I love sloppy joes, I don't know why I don't have them more often.

  9. I haven't thought about topping with slaw either--but it is making me drool just thinking about it. I guess Grumpy does know what's good!

  10. Those sandwiches look good! Gotta have the slaw!
