This recipe came from a magazine a couple of years ago. It is supposed to taste like paprikash. My husband is Hungarian, and we confirmed it really doesn't taste like anything authentic... but I keep making it because it does taste really good and it is very easy. A great weeknight quick supper. Sometimes I can only find frozen pepper strips that have onion in them, but the extra onion never seems to hurt the flavor either.
I worked in a group home with 7 elderly ladies who like meatloaf. On this day I didn't have eggs so I kinda just threw in some stuff and this is what we dubbed it. My little ladies just loved it. The joke always was don't let me get bored in the kitchen.
If you're not watching your sodium intake, use regular instead of low-sodium ingredients. This recipe is based on chili served at Gallagher'ss Steak House, 228 West 52nd Street, New York City, with just a couple of very minor alterations.
Like most old fashion recipes, this sloppy joe is not super spicy but is a sweet and tangy variety. Try this recipe once and you'll throw the can sauce away for good. Old Fashion Sloppy Joe can be cooked and served immediately but is even better reheated the day after.
Perfect party fare. Keep warm in a crockpot for your guests. Also great as a main course. Serve with mashed potatoes or over cooked noodles. The gravy is rich and tasty. Prep time includes the 2 hr refrigeration.
