How To Make Teri’s Sloppy Joes Recipe

Sloppy Joes are practically one of my love languages. You put a bunch of ingredients in a pan, slow-cook it, and wind up with a bowl of soul. My kids always loved this recipe for Sloppy Joes, and as a mom, I found them fantastic because they were a whole meal, along with some cheese, a bun, chips, and a pickle. Once you cook it, you’ve got meals for the week! I’m well aware that there are a lot of ingredients in this recipe, but the reality is that it’s worth it. And I absolutely recommend that you double the recipe because the Sloppy Joe mixture freezes beautifully.

I like my updated version with Sumac and Aleppo pepper. If either is a spice you’ve never had, now is the time to try them! They are certainly worth the search, but if you don’t have access to these spices, it’s ok to leave them out.

One thing I love about Sumac is that it’s an inexpensive way to update all of your cooking. Its lemony flavor is delicious in and on just about everything.
