One of my husbands favorite foods is Sloppy Joes, and really when you think about it, who can blame him. Some foods remind me of being a kid and this is certainly one of them! However, both Rob and I grew up eating the Manwich versions, which is certainly ok with me as I still like it, but while trying to pay better attention to what I eat I decided to finally make home-made Sloppy Joes. There are so many recipes out there but when I found one from Cook's Illustrated I knew it would be a winner.
What I love about this recipe is that it uses ingredients that I always have on hand, whereas most recipes I found use green pepper which I'm not opposed to but I normally don't have them on my grocery list since I eat them so moderately. One thing I will tell you though is that you want to make sure to use a sturdy bun because these both thick and saucy at the same time. Homemade buns would be the best so it looks like I need to get on that!
