"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible." ~ T. E. Lawrence
Yesterday I told you guys about how Mr. J was craving some cozy comfort food on Sunday. These sloppy joes pack a little bit of heat, a lot of flavor, and score on the slop-ometer! They hit the spot and won rave reviews from my man. Plus they are easy to make and I’ll even throw in a bonus recipe on how to make crispy onions – the perfect texture and taste to top off your “joe”. Let’s get cookin’!
What you need (serves 4):
What you do:
Combine all ingredients except the oil, onion, flour, and cheese in a large skillet over medium heat. Mix occasionally and allow to cook for 30 – 40 minutes so all flavors can blend.
In a small skillet over medium heat, melt oil. When oil is hot give the skillet 3 turns to coat it in the oil. Spoon flour into a small mixing bowl. Dredge onions in the flour and then place in the hot oil. Allow to cook for 5 minutes, flipping the onions periodically. Cook until onions are tender with the flour coating becoming crispy and golden but don’t allow the flour to burn.
Serve sloppy joe mixture on bread of choice (I used a corn tortilla since it’s gluten-free), pile the crispy onions over top, and garnish with sliced pepper jack cheese.
