sloppiest joe

my favorite sloppy joe comes from DC’s famous ted’s bulletin in capitol hill (with a new location on 14th street northwest). it’s sweet and tangy, and this recipe from pioneer woman ree drummond recreates it perfectly. while it seems like a lot of ingredients, it’s a fairly simple recipe. the key to a perfect sloppy joe is the toasted brioche bun. don’t forget that bit. great with a side salad, sweet potato fries, coleslaw and more! enjoy! sloppy joe ___________________________ sloppy joes ingredients
