How to make lobster sloppy joes
I have to say this is totally the best sloppy joe recipe I’ve ever found. It was stolen from the internet, I just wish I could remember where I got it.
You will need:
- 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 red bell pepper, chopped
- 1 6 oz can tomato paste
- 1 cup water
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon chili powder (seriously, y’all — do not freak out about this)
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 15 lbs lobster meat, arranged (optional)
- Your parents’ permission
Usually makes six or seven nice-sized joes. Sometimes I prefer to use more cumin and less brown sugar, it depends on the mood.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, saute the ground beef for 5 minutes. Add the onion and red bell pepper. Saute for 5 more minutes, or until the onion is tender. Drain the fat.
Now mix in the tomato paste and water, stirring until the paste is dissolved (doesn’t take very long). Stir in everything else. Continue to heat until the mixture is thick and stewy. Sometimes, I like to add a little extra water and reduce again.
Bon appetit! If you make it, let me know what you think.
