This recipe is a wee bit different from my previous recipe and this one is for camping.
You can take the other recipe camping, too if you’d like just follow the recommended steps in this recipe;-D
Sloppy Joes II
1 tbs extra-virgin olive oil1-1/4 lb ground beef
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbs steal rub
1 onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 tbs red wine vinegar
1 tbs Worcestershire sauce
2 cups tomato sauce
2 tbs tomato paste
4 crusty rolls, split, toasted, and lightly buttered
sliced ripe tomatoes
Heat a heavy skillet over medium-high heat.
Add the olive oil, and when it shimmers, add the beef. Saute, breaking up the beef, until lightly browned, about 7 min.
While the beef is cooking, combine the brown sugar and steak rub in a small bowl with a fork. Sprinkle the mixture over the meat, and stir thoroughly to combine, turning the beef so the sugar and steak rub are mixed in.
When the meat has fully browned, add the chopped onion, diced red pepper, red wine vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce.
Stir well to combine and reduce heat to medium. Cook for 5 min.
Stir in the tomato sauce and tomato paste until well combined, making sure the tomato paste is completely blended in. Reduce heat to simmer and cook the Sloppy Joes another 5 min.
Note: the previous steps can be done at home, placed in a container and then in the cooler.
When ready to heat, dump ingredients in camp skillet, cover and place on the edge of fire to heat thoroughly while stirring occasionally or on low heat on camp stove, 5-7 min. Or can be prepared at the campsite following above directions shifting skillet around on campfire or adjusting heat on camp stove.
Using a large spoon or ice cream scoop, pile sloppy meat onto toasted and buttered crusty bread rolls — toasted right over the campfire using skewers or tongs, and serve with the sliced ripe tomatoes, pickles and pickled peppers as garnishes on the side. Serves 4
