Steak Sauce Sloppy Joes with Overloaded Baked Potatoes

Sometimes you need good old meaty eats for dinner.  We are fortunate enough to have a butchered cow in the freezer and this is a go to quick meal in our house on those chilly fall evenings.

Steak Sauce Sloppy Joes
 1 lb ground beef - whatever you usually buy - we use a pretty lean blend
 16 oz Frozen Onion, bell pepper blend usually found pretty easily in your frozen foods section.
 1 cup water (you can add more if needed)
 1 tbsp Bouillon Beef base paste
 black pepper to taste
 4 Hamburger Buns
Sauce for Sloppy Joes
 2 tbsp Worsteshire Sauce
 2 tbsp A1 sauce ( or your favorite steak sauce)
  cup ketchup
 1 tsp salt
Overloaded Potatoes
 3 lbs potatoes washed
Potato toppings
 shredded cheese
 sour cream
 Butter
 Bacon Bits

1

Preheat the oven to 350'

2

Wash the potatoes and prick them a few times with a fork. Place them on a baking tray in the preheated oven. You can use a toaster oven, air fryer, or instapot to cook your potatoes as well. You do you baby.

3

Brown the ground beef, black pepper, and the frozen bell pepper/onion mix. Drain any excess fat if you need to. I try to always get a lean enough blend there isn't anything to drain. What can I say, I like skinny cows.

4

Add the beef base and the water and simmer your new juicy mixture until it is well incorporated. This could take a minute. It usually depends on if I let it simmer while my potatoes cook or if the taters are done and we are ready to eat. Either way just let this cook gently while your potatoes get their spa treatment. When the potatoes are done fell free to crank this up and finish it with a little power.

5

When the potatoes are cooked through, take them out of oven. Grab a potato with a towel... be careful they are wicked hot.... and whack it on a cutting board. I use enough energy I look mildly disgusted at the potatoes actions but not quite all the way to angry momma bear. Make sense? Well.... I don't know how to describe this action, but Martha Stewart told me this makes baked taters fluffy and by golly it does. So grab a towel, double it up, grab a tater, and "whack it/flop it" on your cutting board. It should split open where you can place it sweetly on a plate for your loved ones to eat.

6

Add your sauce ingredients to your ground beef pot and stir to incorporate it. Just cook it until the sauce is heated through and all the beef is coated. Remove from heat and slather your mixture between 4 buns. Put those on the plate.

7

Top your potatoes with your preferred toppers and dinner is served...

Where are the veggies your ask? There are some in the beef mixture I am almost certain of it ... and ketchup is made from tomatoes... wait that is a fruit.

Whatever... Just have one of my smoothies in the morning. They are loaded with goodies and taste like a milkshake.

Enjoy you yummy, filling eats!!
