This sandwich is from one of my favorite cookbooks "Great Foods From Mom's Diner." It's a unique variation on the Sloppy Joe, so if you're bored with the same old sandwiches give this one a try! Since "Mom" owns the diner, she added a few unlikely (but delicious) ingredients and cleverly re-named it of course!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat.
  2. Add sirloin and brown, breaking up with a fork as it cooks.
  3. Add onion, bell pepper, tomato, salt, and red pepper flakes.
  4. Note; To peel tomato, plunge it into boiling water for 15 seconds and the skin will easily come off.
  5. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until liquid is almost absorbed but mixture is still moist.
  6. Remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter.
  7. Serve on toasted hamburger buns.

This is so easy - I took the recipe with me when we booked self-catering accommodation on a holiday and knew I would only want to cook the quickest meals possible. It was delicious... I had to substitute crushed chillies for the pepper flakes and I made it pretty spicy to suit adult tastes. This spiciness combined with the peanut butter was an excellent and interesting combination. Thanks for sharing this unique recipe!

I made this for 4 kids..had a bit more ground beef than the recipe calls and found it getting a little dry, I added a tin of chopped tomatoes which worked fine. Thanks for sharing.
