Classic Sloppy Joes

Makes 4 servings


1 medium onion

1 large bell pepper

2 stalks celery

2 cloves garlic

1 jalapeno

2 tablespoons olive oil
½ teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

2 teaspoons chili powder

1 pound Hamilton Cattle Co ground beef

1 12-ounce bottle Baird Farm maple ketchup

2 tablespoons raisins

hamburger buns, for serving


Chop the onion, pepper, celery, garlic, and jalapeno into a small dice. Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. When hot, add the chopped vegetables, season with the salt and cook until soft, about 10 minutes, stirring often. Add the spices and ground beef, breaking it up with a spoon in the pan. Cook until the meat is browned, about 10 minutes more.

Add the ketchup and raisins to the pan and bring to a simmer. Cook for another 5 minutes, then serve with the buns and your favorite toppings, such as shredded cheese and pickles.
