The Best (Adult) Sloppy Joes



  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and peppers and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and starting to caramelize in some spots, 6 to 7 minutes.
  2. Add the garlic and saute, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  3. Stir in the ground meat and cook, breaking it up until it is browned, no longer pink in the middle and cooked through, 7 to 8 minutes.

  4. Stir in the rest of the ingredients along with salt and black pepper to taste and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened and heated through, 5 to 6 minutes.
  5. While sauce is thickening, grill or toast the buns.
  6. Spoon sauce over buns and add any desired toppings such as shredded cheddar cheese, green onions, etc.
