    Sarah_Jayne's Note:

    These drunken sloppy joes were inspired by by the drunken meatballs recipe that I make (Drunken Meatballs (With Crock Pot Instructions)). I had a gathering with a group of friends that usually request the drunken meatballs but I wanted to try to do something else. So, I looked at what I had in the house and came up with Drunken Sloppy Joes. I am sure any kind of bourbon would work but I drink so little (funny considering this recipe) that I have been working through the same bottle of Southern Comfort since Christmas.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Heat the olive oil in a large and deep pan.
    2. 2
      Add the onions and fry gently until they have started to go tender. This takes about 5 minutes, stirring often.
    3. 3
      Crumble in the ground beef and cook, stirring when needed, until all of the meat is browned. This took me about 8 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add the ketchup, Southern Comfort and brown sugar and stir until everything is combined with the meat.
    5. 5
      Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer and continue to simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring now and then.
    6. 6
      Stir in the dijon mustard and then let simmer for another 15 minutes or until the sauce is the thickness you like with a sloppy joe.
    7. 7
      Serve on buns.

      DH and I were mixed on the review of this recipe. He thought it was way to sweet. I thought it tasted just right. I was a bit worried when adding the brown sugar, knowing that he might not care for the extra sweetness. But we both agreed that the "Bourbon Rocks". This added a nice change. Thanks for posting. I served them on toasted buns. Yum.

      Since I had to borrow a cup of Southern Comfort from a neighbor, they were happy enough to share half of this 'joe' recipe with us! I did use dark brown sugar & also honey Dijon mustard, & the little bit of extra molasses & sweetness wasn't a distraction at all! Thanks for posting!
