Sloppy Joe

Sloppy Joe

A sloppy joe is an American sandwich of ground beef, onions, sweetened tomato sauce or ketchup and other seasonings, served on a hamburger bun. Commercially made sauces are also available. Textured vegetable protein may be used as a vegetarian substitute for the meat. Contradictory lore suggests that the Original Sloppy Joe Sandwich was invented at Sloppy Joe’s Bar in Key West, Florida or by a cook named Joe at a cafe in Sioux City, Iowa as a variation of the popular “loose meat” sandwich (which does not contain tomato sauce).
