Sloppy Joes are often the target of sandwich snobbery€people just don't believe they're in the same class as clubs, Reubens, or even hamburgers. Which is a shame, because these hot, messy sandwiches are delicious. Sloppy Joes may be known as lowbrow cafeteria food, but they’re still delicious. To make these satisfying hot sandwiches, cook bell peppers, onions, and garlic until softened; add tomato paste; and then brown ground beef or turkey in the same pot. Add a few seasonings along with Worcestershire and tomato sauce, and simmer until the flavors concentrate into a sweet, tangy mixture. Pile a generous helping on a toasted bun, top with our Cabbage and Carrot Herbed Slaw, and don’t forget to tuck a napkin under your chin.
