Day two of back of the box/can recipes and I am already finding myself a little overwhelmed. There are so many back of the can recipes but how many are really gonna be decent enough to eat. Take Sloppy Joes. So simple and easy, brown the meat and add the sauce and dinner is served. But....
Meat was well browned, allowed to drain, returned to the pot and allowed to cook to almost a crispy stage before the sauce was added. Meat was then simmered on low for 30 minutes to develop the flavor fully.
Scaled for Likability: Good
There is nothing wrong with sloppy joes on the basic level: saucy meat and bread. Kinda really can't go wrong except that it could be so much better. Less sweet, more depth, less unknown ingredients that can't pronounced, more freshness. Even with cheese and pickles this is still just a elementary school staple.
