Barbecue Maple Syrup Sloppy Joes

Homemade Sloppy Joe Recipe With A Smokey, Sweet, Tangy Kick

Awww sloppy joes!

This sloppy joes recipe takes a slight detour from the standard ketchup yellow mustard version, cranking up the spice with the smoky, spicy, vinegary goodness of barbecue sauce and richness of pure maple syrup. The result is a fantastically rich, and tangy sloppy joe sandwhich with just a bit of heat.

For the barbecue sauce, I chose a Texas Pit style sauce for the characteristic chili and black pepper spice and vinegar bite. Almost any tomato-based tomato-based Memphis, Kansas City or Texas-style barbecue sauce should do just fine, adding the desired smokey-sweet, spicy and vinegar profile to the dish. In addition to the barbecue sauce, Heinz® Chili Sauce substitutes for ketchup and maple syrup rounds out the dish with its’ smoky, caramel-like richness.

Steps | BBQ Maple Syrup Sloppy Joes

  1. Cook Vegetables
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat add oil olive, chopped onions, green pepper, and finely chopped celery. Heat until starting to brown and onions start to clear, about 5 - 7 minutes. Add 1/4 cup of water to skillet to further soften the vegetables and deglaze the skillet.

  3. Add Ground Beef and Brown
  4. Brown the ground beef by adding it directly to the cooking vegetables, continuing to cook over medium heat. Use a wooden spoon to break up the beef. Season to taste with sea salt and black pepper.

    If using lean ground beef, there is no need to drain fat from the browning beef. If using higher fat ground beef you may choose to remove the vegetables from the skillet, brown beef, drain fat and then replace vegetable into the skillet with browned beef.

  5. Mix and Add Sauce to Cooked Vegetable and Beef
  6. Mix chili sauce, bbq sauce, maple syrup, dijon mustard, and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl and add to the vegetable and beef mix in the skillet. Stir to blend, continuing medium heat uncovered until mixture bubbles and begins to reduce, about 2 - 3 minutes. Simmer for an additional 5 - 10 minutes covered and serve on Brioche hamburger buns and pickle chips.
