Sloppy Giuseppes


I used to have this great recipe for an Italian version of Sloppy Joes and lost it. I decided to recreate it and this recipe turned out just as good, if not better. The beef and Italian sausage mixture tastes so good on a toasted Hague. The recipe is simple, so it's perfect for a weeknight dinner and will make six nice sized sandwiches.
Sloppy Giuseppes
1 Tbsp. olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 small shallot, minced
1 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 lb. bulk Italian sausage, crumbled
2 (8 oz) cans of tomato sauce
1 Tbsp. Italian seasoning
6 slices Provolone cheese
6 Italian hoagie buns, sliced and toasted
In a large skillet, heat the oil on medium-high heat. Add garlic and shallot and saute for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add beef and sausage, cook until cooked through and browned. Drain fat from pan and return to heat. Add tomato sauce and Italian seasonings, bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes. Add some crushed red pepper for some added heat if desired.
Serve on toasted hoagies with Provolone cheese.

Mike, Everything you make makes me sooooooooooo hungry! Have you ever tried using a Big Green Egg smoker/grill? I am curious about how well they work. I am so spoiled from the memory Granny's brisket and want something I can grill, smoke, bake etc on and this looks to be the answer - Let me know what youv'e heard
Your cousin, Melinda

Hey Melinda,
I do not have the green egg, but I have heard nothing but good things about them. I have some friends who swear by them. I have Granny's old Hasty Bake and the memories swirl when I heat that bad boy up. It smells like the old sun porch!
