Our take on this classic, crowd-pleasing sandwich - with a little added kick!

Ingredients - Sloppy Joes
1 pound ground ostrich steak (defrost first)
1 tbsp butter                     
¼ cup red onion diced
½ green bell pepper diced
1 tbsp minced fresh garlic      
2 tbsp tomato paste                      
¼ cup tomato sauce
½ cup ketchup  
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp yellow mustard
2 tsp worcestershire sauce
2 tsp chili powder
Burger buns

Special kitchen tools 
None

Preparation - Sloppy Joes
Add butter to a sauté pan and melt.  Once melted, add 1 pound of thawed ground ostrich and cook thoroughly.  Due to the low-fat content of the ostrich, straining is not necessary!

Add red onion and green bell pepper and cook 2 minutes.  Add the minced garlic, 2 tbsp of tomato paste, 1/4 cup tomato sauce, and 1/2 cup ketchup.  Continue to stir while cooking.

Add brown sugar, yellow mustard, and worcestershire sauce.  If needed, add salt to taste and mix in the chili powder.  

Spread butter onto the insides of bun, toast on a hot griddle to a nice golden brown, and serve up those Slop, Sloppy Joes!
