Bison Sloppy Joes

Sloppy Joes are one of those things that remind you of childhood, for better or for worse. Mom's dinners, cafeterias, school lunches....all harken back to the days of sloppy joes.

Which leads us to tonight's dinner. As I sat at my desk wondering what I should do with the bison meat in my fridge, I started going through a list of meals in my head that would usually use ground beef. Tacos? Nah. I don't have any taco fillings. Meatballs? Nah, I've already done it. Meat sauce? Nah, not feeling pasta.

Thinking.

Thinking.

thinking.....

Hm. What about sloppy joes? I pitch it to Brett. He likes it. Sloppy joes it is.

So how can I make it updated? Throw in some sriracha? Yeah, yeah that sounds good. And maybe some cajun mustard? Sure! Why not. And then topped with some sweet pepper relish, this updated version of sloppy joes is unbelievably good. And it took under 20 minutes to make. Saweeet!

So embrace your inner dinner child and have sloppy joes tonight!


Ingredients
1 lb bison meat
1 T olive oil
1/2 chopped onion
4 cloves of garlic
1/2 C ketchup
1/2 C honey
1/4 C mustard
2 T Boar's Head savory remoulade cajun style mayonnaise (or something similar)
1 T sriracha
4 kaiser rolls
Sweet pepper relish (optional)

In a large skillet, heat a pan to medium heat. Add the ground bison.
 Brown well and then set aside in a bowl.

Heat up 1 T of olive oil in the same pan. Add the chopped onions.

Chop the garlic and add to the onions after 5 minutes, when the onions are translucent.

Stir for another minute and then add back in the meat.

Combine the rest of the ingredients.

Add to the meat and stir for another 2 or 3 minutes.

Serve on kaiser rolls with sweet red peppers.
