  • Ingredients
  • step-by-step directions
Sloppy Joes
  • 1 medium yellow onion (medium dice)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground dark meat chicken
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 russet potato (grated)
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 bottle lager beer
  • 4 potato buns
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • Heat a few tablespoons of olive oil in a medium sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic, season with salt and pepper, and cook until softened, about 4 minutes.
  • Add the spices, and stir to combine. Cook for a minute or 2 to toast the spices. Then add the ground chicken, breaking up the meat with the back of a wooden spoon. Cook until the chicken has browned, about 8 minutes. Next, stir in the potato, tomato paste, and ketchup and cook for 3-5 minutes. Pour in the beer, bring to a simmer and cook for 5-10 minutes more.
  • Remove from heat and serve on potato buns.
  • Tip:
    - If you can't find ground chicken, replace with ground turkey. Or, ask your butcher to grind up the chicken meat.
    - Replace the beer with water or chicken stock for a kid-friendly dish!
