Peanut Butter Satay Sloppy Joes

Print This Recipe Print This Recipe

I’ve always had a soft spot for recipes with funny names – blueberry grunt, spotted dick, toad in the hole, scrapple, and yes, sloppy joes. I think it’s because they appeal to my inner six-year-old.

Here, I’ve updated this childhood classic with a classic Thai-style satay sauce spiked with red curry paste. While it’s definitely way more stylish than anything your school cafeteria could ever have dished out, it’s still just as comforting and satisfying as the original.

Not a fan of spice? Use Smooth Operator or Crunch Time instead of The Heat is On for a toned-down (but equally delicious) version.

2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, sauté onion in canola oil for 5 minutes, or until soft and translucent. Add garlic and ginger, and continue cooking for 2 minutes longer, or until garlic is soft.

3. Add beef and cook 5-7 minutes or until cooked through, breaking up with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Stir in the stir fry sauce, and cook for about 5-10 minutes longer, or or until sauce thickens up. Remove from heat.

4. To assemble the sloppy joes, arrange bottom buns on serving plates. Spoon filling onto the buns, dividing evenly between the plates. Garnish with a sprinkle of cilantro and green onion, then finish with the top halves of the buns. Serve immediately with fresh cucumber salad or Asian-style coleslaw.

    When my son was little he called Meringues (Forgotten Cookies recipe) rangutans as in orangutans. It made me quite sad when in fifth grade he realized the correct name for the cookie.
