Let’s prepare the Sloppy Joe, a burger that is different from the usual

Sloppy Joe

Similar to hamburger in terms of ingredients, Sloppy Joe is much more and you will notice it at the first bite!

When it comes to burgers, Americans are always one step ahead and it's no coincidence that Sloppy Joe is among the most popular sandwiches . Wanting to describe it in a simplistic way we can say that it is a deconstructed hamburger . In fact, the ingredients are minced meat, ketchup and onions served inside the classic bun , the panini with sesame seeds.

The origin of the dish is very ancient . It appears in 19th century cookbooks as Toasted Deviled Hamburger or Beef Mironton while the current name is in all probability due to the chef who brought it back into vogue, Joe precisely.

This delicious sandwich, usually served with french fries and pickles , has recently been included in American Horror Story: Cult, making itself known even outside the American borders. Let's see together how to prepare it with the original recipe.

How to make Sloppy Joe sandwich recipe

  1. First of all let's dedicate ourselves to the preparation of the meat. Finely chop the onion and slice the jalapeno pepper. Alternatively you can use the classic red pepper, in doses to taste, or for a more delicate dish, the green pepper cut into cubes.
  2. Brown the garlic clove in the oil in a pan. Add the meat and, when it has taken on a nice brown colour, add the onions and peppers . Let it brown for a few moments before adding the ketchup , brown sugar , Worchester sauce , mustard and half a glass of water.
  3. Cook the meat, adjusting with salt and pepper, so that the sauce is thick. Serve it in the classic hamburger buns cut in half and enriched with a slice of cheddar.

For every self-respecting Sloppy Joe there is a side of fries and pickles. If, on the other hand, you want to keep yourself lighter, even a green salad will do just fine.


This delicious and irreverent sandwich is good when eaten fresh , with hot minced meat and stringy cheddar. The cooked minced meat, separated from the sandwich and the cheese, can be kept for about 2 days in the refrigerator in a container with an airtight lid. We do not recommend freezing.
