DIRECTIONS

  • In a food processor, combine the onion, hot or sweet peppers, and garlic.
  • Pulse until very finely minced.
  • You may need to scrape down the sides of the bowl several times; set aside.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add the onion mixture and saute for about 4 minutes.
  • Add the paprika, cumin, chili powder and mustard powder.
  • Stir well and saute another 4 minutes, or until the onions are very soft.
  • Add the beef and saute, breaking up the clumps with a spoon, until the meat is just browned, about 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a large measuring cup, whisk together the ketchup, tomato puree and vinegar.
  • Add this to the meat, bring to a simmer, then lower heat to medium and cook, uncovered, 10 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
  • Season the sloppy joes with salt and pepper.
  • Arrange each bun on a serving plate, then spoon a quarter of the sloppy joes into each.
  • Serve with pickles, if desired.
