Turkey Joes

I have so many things I want to post about...but today, I have to tell you about Monday night's dinner...

The only way I have ever made sloppy joes was using Manwich and I'm not gonna lie...I LOVE the stuff. It's so tangy and simply delish! I knew I didn't have any in the pantry and in an effort to try and clean out my pantry...I decided to make my own. How hard could it be? Not very!!! I browsed around for ideas and came across a great recipe from none other than The Pioneer Woman herself. I changed it up quite bit and they were AWESOME!!! I know most recipes call for brown sugar, we don't really like it sweet, so I didn't even bother with it...and I added jalapenos and lots of Tabasco for some heat!

I'm sorry Manwich but I don't know if I will be able to continue our relationship...

Turkey Joes

1 lb ground turkey
1/2 yellow onion, diced 
2 jalapenos, diced
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 1/2 cups ketchup
3/4 to 1 cup water
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon A1 steak sauce
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Tabasco sauce, to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt & pepper, to taste

Topping suggestions :
sliced cheese
diced onion
raw jalapenos
  1. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the turkey, onions, garlic and jalapenos. Cook until turkey is no longer pink. Approx 10 minutes.
  2. Add the ketchup, water, mustard, Worcestershire, A1 sauce, crushed red pepper, Tabasco, salt and pepper. Simmer for 20-30 minutes tasting along the way. You many want to add more Tabasco, salt and/or pepper depending on you taste.
  3. Serve on your favorite bun and ENJOY!
NOTE : This makes about 6 sandwiches.

NOT pictured..A1, garlic, salt, pepper and mustard...my bad!

Needed a tad more ketchup and mustard...

Onion buns are the way to go! Soooo goood!

Simply Delicioso!!!!!!!!!

You could easily substitute the ground turkey for beef...we at so much red meat over the weekend that I felt the need to give my arteries a bit of a rest! Post on that to come later...

I hope everyone has a fabulous day!!!
I will try to, despite the fact that it is raining...AGAIN...
Pin It

This sounds delish! I love sloppy joes, and the use of turkey is very appealing! Love the touch of A1 as well!
