Big Daddy’s Sloppy Joe Sandwich

Every once-in-a-while I get a hankerin’ for a big ole messy Sloppy Joe sandwich. I ate them often as a child. My tastes have changed since then, so the versions of Sloppy Joes I eat now are quite different. But, they are still super yummy, and just as importantly, messy. They don’t call them Sloppy for no reason, ya know? Big Daddy’s Sloppy Joe sandwich is the grown-up version of my childhood favorite.

The original version of this recipe came from Aaron McCargo Jr, one of my all-time favorite chefs on the Food Network. Chef McCargo always created food with bold flavors, which is why I liked him.
