Up until last week I had never tried sloppy joes. Crazy huh?
The name never appealed to me. I thought of a mess or leftover food or just yuckiness. It seemed so strange that people would like a mess of a meal inside of a bun and enjoy it. “Why?” I asked myself. Well, I found out why. Turns out a messy meal is not only good, but fun to eat as well.
Last week I was at a classic BBQ joint in our area called Shorty’s. They have so many good food options, but I usually always stick with brisket sandwiches. I usually always choose one meal I like on a menu and stay hooked onto it until I get bored or they eliminate it off the menu. Well, one day I ordered my classic brisket sandwich and they informed me they were out. WHAT?
I asked what they had that was similar and they said sloppy joes. I was in an adventurous mood so I ordered it. Turns out, it was just awesome! The sloppiness is just half the fun! I wanted to try them at home with my whole family so I pulled out my trusted crock pot and made them and boy are they finger lickin’ good!
