    So what do you call 'em?

    Up here - it's wimpies. But I cannot let go of my out-west upbringing and call them sloppy joes.

    So who's got their own recipe?

    The one I used to make as a kid had a pound of ground beef, an onion (diced), a pepper (diced), a small can of tomato sauce, a few tbs of ketchup and salt and pepper to taste.

    My wife calls them "Neat Sams" (some joke from her college days.)

    I am was not a huge fan of the bun, and since my wife usually makes baked fries to go with her Neat Sams, I simply forgo the bun, and pour the Neat Sam stuff over my fries.

    Mmmm good - I especially love the left overs for lunch.

    {pound of ground beef, }

    a little bit of history:

    Real sloppy Joes are made from the trimming left over from cut brisket and not from ground beef. The Meat markets in texas needed a way to sell the scrapes and thus Sloppy Joes was good alternative to throwin them away or feeding them to the dogs.

    My mom's receipe is about 1-2 lbs of brisket trimmings ( you know the small pieces that falls off, when they slice it at the market )

    1 can of tomatoe paste
    2ea stew tomatoe
    1lg dice/slice onions
    1 green bell pepper
    black ground pepper
    1 crushed garlic
    teaspoon of cayenne pepper to taste

    Cooking this all together and placed it on a toasted hamburger buns and you have a TeXan Sloppy Joe.

    Sloppy Joe.

    Belive it or not, I had never had one until about six months ago. My wife told me that was what we were having for dinner, and I asked, "What's wrong, are we broke?"

    For some odd reason, I thought it was kinda like a poor person's food. Silly me -- that stuff is kinda yummy.

    Toast some bread and spoon it over and then slap on a piece of provolone! YUMMY!
