A Legendary Sandwich
The legend of the Sloppy Joe sandwich began in Sioux City, Iowa when a short-order cook added tomato sauce to his ground beef. Any guess on the cook’s name? That’s right, Joe.
So Many Side Options
- Onion rings
- Garlic fries
- Homemade baked beans
- Creamy coleslaw
- Potato salad
- Corn on the cob
- Homemade potato chips(try different varieties of potato)
- Tossed salad greens
This variation combines the savory flavors of the beef, onions, and pepper with a hint of sweetness from the Worcestershire sauce. Jalapeño and Tabasco are there to add a bit of heat.
The best Sloppy Joes are the ones made with ground beef that comes from locally raised, grass-fed cattle and the freshest, locally sourced vegetables. It is a dish that rewards those who use the most flavorful ingredients. The Butcher Shop has the fresh meat and the produce you need to make this and hundreds of other high quality, savory dishes.
