How to Make Brown Sugar Bacon Sloppy Joes
In a large skillet, be sure to brown the ground sirloin and cook it until it is completely done with no pink and it is dark brown.
Then, using paper towels, drain the excess fat, and place the sirloin back in the skillet. After you want to take your chopped onion and chopped red pepper and add it to the skillet and for five minutes cook on low.
Then you will take the bacon and cook it until it is completely cooked and crispy, then you will drain the fat from it and set aside.
Add to your skillet the Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce and stir well. Pour in your tomato sauce and ketchup, chili powder, cumin, paprika, dry mustard, brown sugar, garlic salt and seasoned salt and mix well.
For about 20 minutes let your ingredients simmer.
Next, while you’re ingredients are simmering, toast your buns, using either a toaster or if you choose a cookie sheet in the oven, you want to toast them until they’re light golden brown.
Then, after 20 minutes mix the sloppy joes and crumble the bacon over your meat mixture and mix.
When you are ready to serve place your meat on your toasted buns along with chips of your choosing and any choice of condiments.
Can I Use Ground Turkey for This?
While using ground sirloin gives the truest flavor for when people think of sloppy joe, if you prefer ground turkey or want to make this healthier with ground turkey breast, you can certainly make the change.
