Texas BBQ Sloppy Joes

The Menu:
Texas BBQ Sloppy Joes

The Original Recipe:
I found this on cassiecraves.blogspot. It is really good. I did a few things differently, but it is a definite keeper to make again. I get tired of plain old sloppy joes, so this was a nice change!

Texas BBQ Sloppy Joes


adapted from Tried-and-True Cooking with Heidi

1 1/3 pounds lean ground beef

1 onion, chopped

1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes with green chilies

1/2 cup ketchup

1 cup bottled barbecue sauce

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 package frozen garlic Texas toast

1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese


1. Brown ground beef and onion in large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring often, 8 to 10 minutes or until beef is no longer pink; drain well. Return to skillet.

2. Stir in tomatoes with green chilies, ketchup, barbecue sauce, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and cook 10 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, prepare Texas toast according to package directions. Serve beef mixture over Texas toast; sprinkle with cheese.
 
 
The Way I Made It My Own:
I just changed a few little things to make it a bit easier for a quick supper. I wanted it to not be so runny, too so I cut out the tomatoes. We just ate them like regular sloppy joes with some augratin potatoes and corn as sides. A keeper to make again for sure!
