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.

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!

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.

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!
