Feeds 6 hungry mouths
You will need:
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 small red capsicum, deseeded and diced
  • 1 small green capsicum, deseeded and diced
  • 450g lean beef mince
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes in juice
  • ½ x 250ml bottle F. Whitlock & Sons Chipotle BBQ Sauce
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 6 brioche buns
Get down to business:
  1. Heat a dash of oil in a lidded frying pan. Add onion, garlic and capsicums and stir-fry over a medium heat until onion softens. Increase heat and add the mince and brown, breaking up the mince with a fork if necessary.
  2. Add chopped tomatoes and F. Whitlock & Sons Chipotle BBQ Sauce. Stir. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 15-20 minutes, until the sauce is thick.* Scatter over grated cheese. Place the lid on the pan and allow to stand for 3-5 minutes, to allow the cheese to melt.
  3. Cut burger buns in half. Brush with a little oil and place under the grill to toast.
  4. Spoon over the sloppy Jo sauce and top with bun top.

Note:

  1. The sauce should be nice and thick but not dry – as the name suggests ‘sloppy’ consistency.
  2. Replace beef mince with pork mince.
  3. Add some sliced Jalapenos for a real spicy kick.
  4. Serve over baked potatoes.
  5. Reduce mince to 300g. Add a 400g can Red kidney beans. Serve over nacho chips.
