The Sloppy

THE Sloppy

Justin at MarxFoods was kind enough to share his creativity with us over here at ChezWhat and as glad as I am that he did I have to say that he is such a tease with this fantastically sloppy creation that I feel like he needs to be flogged, thats right flogged, flogged with a boars bristly tail for his indiscretion and insensitivity. Enjoy!

It’s called “THE Sloppy.” And, it kick’s Joe’s ass. So much so that we couldn’t even find a name to replace “Joe”. We used ground wild boar meat, but you can probably use whatever ground meat your carnivorous heart desires. Brown the meat with some chopped onions.

Then add some pureed tomatoes, brown sugar, powdered mustard, garlic powder, Worcestershire (go easy on it), smoked paprika and salt. Use more pureed tomatoes than you think you need, because this is going to cook down by about a third and get nice and thick in about three quarters of an hour (thats 45 minutes in case you needed to know) and then this would be a good time to adjust seasoning.

When the mixture is almost done getting sloppy, start thinking about the rest of the sandwich. Fry some fresh jalapeno slices in olive oil until the seeds are lightly browned, then dry on a paper towel.

Fry an egg over easy. We used duck, big fat duck eggs.

Finally, rub a split brioche bun with some melted butter and grill it toast it or fry it in a cast iron skillet, toaster or broiler.

Grab a hand towel and huddle over THE Sloppy as you flash back to childhood and have a quiet moment to yourself. Dont believe it - check out the complete recipe and live it!

Fried jalapenos AND a fried egg? I just had dinner, but could eat one of those right now.

Jenn said...

Fantastic!! I think it's time for a midnight snack. If not then I'll take it for breakfast.

Anette said...

I would have Loved to have that for my dinner!! Being sat in a quiet corner slurping it in with such a joy and with yellow yolk down my chin... and my nose dripping from the heat of the jalapenos... sigh.. (with delight!)

Ciao Chow Linda said...

wild boar meat? lucky you. I've never had that outside of Italy.

5 Star Foodie said...

Wow, that is one fabulous sandwich - with ground wild boar & fried jalapenos & duck egg - yum!

Tangled Noodle said...

I am so ready to have some wild boar and duck egg sloppies! For the time being, it may have to be ground bison and brown chicken eggs - the Not-As-Sloppy. Should tide me over until I can make up the real deal.

Lea Ann said...

I just saw this over at Marx Foods. I think this looks unbelievable! I will be trying this, don't think I'll be able to find ground wild boar - but I'll try. That perfectly cooked egg looks wonderful sitting on that lucious meat. I'm in love.

Breakfast, lunch, dinner, heartbreak, diet, whenever! That is one beautiful sandwich. Gimme, gimme!!

That's just crazy ... good.

dawn said...

that is just insane! big fat duck eggs oh yeah baby!

Joanne said...

This "Sloppy" definitely kicks some serious A**. First of all. the boar meat. I would love to try some. I really love that gamey flavor. And then topped with the fried egg...I'm pretty sure that more things in life should be topped with a fried egg. They make everything so much better.

Also, I think the goat curry totally counts as a Middle Eastern recipe! Just send me the photo and link, and link to my blog in your post.

Nutmeg Nanny said...

That is freaking awesome! Talk about dressing up the normal sloppy joe. I have had boar before but never ground...yum!

Beth said...

an egg? really? ok, I'm game. Looks fantastic and I know you'd be all SLOPPY after eating this one Dog!

Claudia said...

Holey-moley - marching over there right now. This is intense, delectable sloppy! I've only gotten boar's meet in NYC.

Cynthia said...

This is the kind of breakfast I'd like to wake up to :)

snugs said...

those are the most perfect looking eggs...I want it all

Vickie said...

Wow! This sandwich looks dripping-to-the elbows good, and I'm hoping it will be as good with plain old (available in Montana)ground pork. This is the kind of food you should NOT wear a white shirt around. BTW, the photo of the sizzling jalapenos has stolen my heart. I'm adding some to something today!

~Dana said...

Amazing pictures, and delicious looking food! Yum!

Pavithra said...

That looked not so sloppy, but darn tasty! I have a jar of pickled Jalapenos, crying from the pantry to be opened...

Marjie said...

Now that's a big meal!

teresa said...

that is one fantastic sloppy!

My Carolina Kitchen said...

My father used to eat his burger with an egg on it, sometimes fried and sometimes scrambled. I tried it once and it was delicious, I mean really delicious. I can only imagine that the jalapenos made it even better.

We have a restaurant in the mountains who occasionally features a boar burger. In NC they will only serve ground beef medium well and in our opinion, that makes it too dry for our taste. However, on buffalo and other meats such a boar, they can cook it to order. Go figure.

This is so delicious! I can almost feel my arteries singing in anticipation of meal. Yum!

Jackie at PhamFatale.com said...

That's probably the best comfort food but I think I'd get rid of some of the fried jalapenos? How hot were they?

Juliana said...

Love your version of "sloppy" with egg and jalapenos, my mouth is watering at the pictures...

Chef Aimee said...

Oh wow this made my heart skip a beat. :) There is nothing like warm oozing egg yolk in a dish....mmm!

Laurie said...

That's the best sloppy anything I've ever seen. Ground wild boar...duck eggs...

You are a food god.

Jamie said...

Wow! That's really kickin' it up! I crave Sloppy Joes living in the land of the Steak Tartare so why don't I ever make it? Could I make it half as delicious as yours looks? Not sure. May have to keep on dreaming.

Haddock said...

I am cracking up over the thought of flogging someone with a bristly boar tail! Haha!

This one might have a little too much kick for me, but I'd give it a taste just to be fair. ;)
