It’s complicated. Somehow I only managed to menu plan this week through Wednesday. It came to the end-of-the-work day today, around 6:30PM, and I had the look of, “What’s for dinner?” I pulled some ground bison from the freezer and decided Sloppy Joes would be a perfect comfort food after a challenging work day. Later I learned how much my guys heart Sloppy Joes. They were high-fiving over it. Seriously. Mom was finally making “normal” food, until Craig saw me with the jalapeños, cumin, allspice, molasses (?!), apple cider. Certainly not Manwich. What the hell is that??
This is modified from a tofu recipe from Rebar, a vegetarian restaurant in Victoria, British Columbia, where we dined a number of years that even Craig REALLY liked. The problem was I had no tofu, but I had bison.
These are THE best Sloppy Joes I’ve ever made. Yes, campy, but with bold flavors, generously seasoned. With the additions of beans as specified in the original recipe, it would make a tasty chili. We served it with coleslaw and chips.
