Domestic Goddess-ness

We interrupt our regularly scheduled wedding programming to bring you the most amazing Sloppy Joe recipe ever. Say what you will about Miss Rachael Ray, but she has a pretty decent magazine and some really good recipes. Last night I wanted to make Sloppy Joes with ground turkey, so I went to the trusty Food Network website. I came across a recipe from Rachael and another from Tyler Florence. Rachael's recipe got MUCH better reviews so I decided to give it a shot. I didn't take any pictures, but it was so freaking GOOD! Her recipe, titled Sloppy Joe Di Maggios, calls for cut up hot dogs, but I decided to omit them. I also added a green bell pepper.


  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 pounds lean ground sirloin or ground turkey
  • 1 packages beef or pork hot dogs, sliced 1/2-inch thick
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon steak seasoning (recommended: Montreal Steak Seasoning by McCormick)
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 9 soft burger rolls - like at the ballpark


Heat the extra-virgin olive oil, a turn of the pan, in a deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add meat and crumble as it browns. Add chopped hot dogs after 3 to 4 minutes then cook 3 to 4 minutes more. Add the onions to the pan and cook to soften, 5 to 6 minutes more. In a bowl mix the spices, sugar, Worcestershire and tomato sauce. Pour sauce over the meat and simmer a few minutes to combine flavors. Slop onto buns and serve.
