Loose meat with just the right amount of flavors. This is a truly dynamite sandwich. Add a hotdog and voilà, you’ll have the Great Sloppy Bob Dog!
Prep your skillet with one turn of the pan using olive oil.
Cook the ground beef until brown and crumbly, drain.
Make sure to brown the meat well, on high heat. Don’t crowd the pan.
Work in batches. Don’t stir the meat until it is well browned on one side.
Note: Use a large cooking pot on the stove or a slow cooker. Combine with the onion, celery, green/red pepper, garlic and bacon. Add tomato paste, water, All Purpose Sauce, seasoning salt, vinegar, brown sugar and mustard. Mix well.
Cover and cook on medium heat for 1 hour. (3-4 hours in slow cooker)
Optional garnish: sliced ripe tomatoes, pickles, cheese.
Serve on toasted hamburger buns, toast or plain. If your relatives visit from Canada, put it on a hotdog bun for a pain à la viande, …eh.
Makes 8-10 servings.
