Foodie Friday - Emeril's Sloppy Joes and Fresh Corn

I found this recipe in the June Everyday Food magazine.Emeril's Sloppy Joes
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons olive oil
1 medium onion, dices small (2 cups)
1 large celery stalk, diced small (1/2 cup)
1/2 green bell pepper, diced small (1/2 cup
course salt and ground pepper
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
3 tablespoons dark-brown sugar
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 cups prepared tomato sauce
1 cup homemade beef or chicken stock or low-sodium chicken broth
2 teaspoons hot-pepper sauce (optional)
4 hamburger buns, split (I used whole wheat buns)
In a large skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high. Add onion, celery, bell pepper, season with salt and pepper, and cook until vegetables soften, about 2 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 minutes. Add beef, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, and cook until browned, 2 minutes. Add brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, tomato sauce, and stock and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes. Add hot-pepper sauce (if using) and remove beef mixture from heat.
Meanwhile, heat broiler, with rack in top position. Place buns, cut side up on a baking sheet and lightly brush with 2 tablespoons oil. Broil until buns are golden, about 3 minutes. (Alternatively, toast on a grill pan or in a skillet oiled side down, over medium-high.)
Generously spoon beef mixture over toasted bun bottoms. Sandwich with bun tops and serve.
Clean corn and break in half. Put into foil, drizzle with olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste. I add some fresh herbs from my garden. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

Have a happy and save Memorial Day Weekend:)

I know some young men who would love to be sitting at your table this weekend. The SJ's sound delicious and look appropriately messy. Have a great weekend. Blessings...Mary

I have never had a sloppy joe before but my hubby, who lived in Ohio for a year, loves them. I should surprise him one night with this. Thanks for posting it!

Hope your weekend is fabulous!

Best wishes,
Natasha.

I just wish I had seen this before we had corn on the cob tonight! It sounds like a great way to do it and what delicious looking sloppy joes! I like the recipes for it that aren't loaded with sugar and this is one I will have to try!!! Thanks!
