A sloppy joe is a sandwich consisting of ground beef, onions, tomato sauce or ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and other seasonings, served on a hamburger bun. The dish originated in the United States during the early 20th century.



Early 20th century American cookbooks offer plenty of sloppy-joe type recipes, though they go by different titles: Toasted Deviled Hamburgers, Chopped Meat Sandwiches, Hamburg a la Creole, Beef Mironton, and Minced Beef Spanish Style.

Marilyn Brown, Director of the Consumer Test Kitchen at H.K. Heinz in Pittsburgh, says their research at the Carnegie Library suggests that the sloppy joe began in a Sioux City, Iowa, cafe as a “loose meat sandwich” in 1930, the creation of a cook named Joe.

References to sloppy joes as sandwiches begin by the 1940s. One example is a 1944 Coshocton Tribune ad under the heading “Good Things to Eat” says “Sloppy Joes’ – 10c – Originated in Cuba – You’ll ask for more – The Hamburg Shop” and elsewhere on the same page, “Hap is introducing that new sandwich at The Hamburg Shop – Sloppy Joes – 10c.”

The term “sloppy Joe’s” had an earlier definition of any cheap restaurant or lunch counter serving cheap food quickly, since 1940 or a type of casual clothing.

Food companies began producing packaged sloppy joe sauce, such as Manwich, by the 1960s.



Several variations of the sloppy joe exist in North America. In Quebec, Canada, sandwiches of stewed ground beef

Ground Buffalo "Joe"

Ground Buffalo “Joe”

such as pain à la viande and pain fourré gumbo are usually served on hot dog buns. A similar sandwich, the “dynamite,” exists in the area around Woonsocket, Rhode Island, and is distinguished by the use of onions, bell peppers, and sometimes celery.

Stewed meat sandwiches are common in several other culinary traditions as well. The rou jia mo, from China’s Shaanxi Province, consists of stewed pork, beef, or lamb on a steamed bun. Keema pav of Indian cuisine uses a pav bread roll filled with keema, a minced, stewed, curried meat.

Ground turkey or textured vegetable protein may be used as a substitute for ground beef.

A BBQ Hint…..

It takes time for your caramelised BBQ crust to develop and this won’t happen if you’re continually flipping your steaks or burgers. Only turn once or twice. And definitely don’t squash everything down as this forces the juices to run out and leaves you with sad dry meat. Sausages are also best left alone – piercing the skins dries them out.


Thanks to Bubs for passing this grill tip along!

Grilled Chicken, Pork and Beef Main Dishes for Summer Cookouts

Fire up the grill for these Grilled Chicken, Pork and Beef Main Dishes for Summer Cookouts. From the EatingWell website.



Grilled Chicken, Pork and Beef Main Dishes for Summer CookoutsEatingWell2

It’s fun to entertain on a warm sunny day, but who wants to turn on the oven when it’s hot outside? So fire up the grill instead and make one of these grilled recipes perfect for entertaining a crowd.

Beer-Barbecued Chicken
Here’s our spin on the roast-a-chicken-on-top-of-a-can-of-beer technique that’s popular with barbecue aficionados. To simplify things, we just pour a little beer inside the chicken as it cooks. The beer keeps the meat juicy and a smoky-flavored spice rub both under and over the skin gives it extra flavor. Barbecuing poultry with the skin on helps prevent the meat from drying out. To keep calories and fat in check, remove the skin before serving…



Smoked Turkey Breast
This smoked turkey breast is great for entertaining because it feeds a crowd. Plus there’s not much to do except wait while the brine turns the bird luxurious and then wait again until the grill turns it irresistible…..

Jerk Pork Loin
“Jerk” isn’t Jamaican for “as hot as you can stand it.” Instead, a jerk paste should be a carefully blended, aromatic melange, as much nose tickle as tongue spike. Here we use that flavorful paste on grilled pork loin. Watch out for that hot chile pepper: wear rubber gloves to protect your skin and touch no one until you’ve washed up thoroughly. If you have time, marinate the pork the full 24 hours for the best flavor…..

2 tablespoons ground cumin
1 pound diced ham
2 cups chopped fresh cilantro

1 – Combine black beans and water in a stockpot. Bring to a boil and simmer until tender, about 2 hours.
2 – Meanwhile, place red and green chile peppers, jalapeños and bell peppers on a baking sheet. Roast under the broiler until the skins are blackened, turning often. Place in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let sit for 15 minutes, then peel and remove the seeds.
3 – In a food processor, purée chiles, bell peppers, spinach, tomatillos, green tomatoes and green onions; set aside.
4 – Heat oil in a large saucepan and cook pork until browned. Remove and drain on paper towels.
5 – Add onions and garlic to pork grease; sauté until tender, about 3 minutes. Add sugar, cumin, ham, pork and the chile purée. Simmer over low heat for 2 hours.
6 – When beans are tender, add meat mixture; mix well. Serve with topped with cilantro.
Makes 12 servings.

*Working with jalapeños or other chiles: Capsaicin is the ingredient in chiles that causes the burning sensation associated with fresh peppers. It’s a good idea to use rubber gloves when handling fresh chiles. (Disposable surgical gloves, available at most drugstores, work best for this.) If you choose not to use gloves, be extremely careful not to touch any part of your body, especially your eyes. After you’ve finished handling the chiles, wash your knife and cutting board with hot soapy water to ensure that there is no carry-over to other foods that may come in contact with the peppers.

When grilling meats…..


Don’t pierce your meat with a fork or prongs. The juices will escape, making the meat drier and less flavorful. Use a spatula or tongs to move and flip your food.

Barbecue Pulled Chicken
This BBQ pulled chicken recipe is a fanciful reinterpretation of pulled pork that slow-cooks chicken in lots of tangy tomato sauce. Have sliced jalapenos, sliced red onions and some sour cream on hand to top this barbecue pulled chicken, which makes a hearty main course. You can turn it into an unbelievable sandwich or serve it on mashed potatoes or even whole-grain spaghetti. Serve with shredded napa cabbage tossed with low-fat mayonnaise, cider vinegar, celery seed and honey to taste…….

Slow-Cooked Brisket in Onion Gravy
This brisket is cooked with beef broth and loads of onions that melt down into a luscious gravy. Serve the brisket and gravy over a mound of steaming mashed potatoes with a side of green beans or sliced carrots for a perfect Sunday dinner……

Pulled Pork with Caramelized Onions
Traditional pulled pork is barbecued, which gives it a smoky flavor. But the slow cooker happens to be the absolute easiest way to cook pulled pork—and you can get a hint of smoke by adding chipotle chile. Serve the pulled pork with potato salad, collard greens and grits. Or make it into a sandwich and serve it on a bun with coleslaw……
