You'll never go back to the canned stuff after trying these incredibly delicious and easy-to-make sloppy Joes. Using three kinds of meat adds amazing flavor and texture to these hearty sandwiches.


    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1/2 cup chopped onions
    • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
    • 1/2 pound ground beef
    • 1/2 pound ground pork
    • 1 pound beef rib eye, very thinly sliced
    • 1/2 cup finely diced mushrooms
    • 1 cup ketchup
    • 1/4 cup birch beer
    • 1 tablespoon English mustard, preferably Colman's
    • 2 cups chopped spinach
    • Sharp provolone cheese
    • American cheese
    • 1/4 cup chopped sweet peppers
    • Long rolls, cut in half lengthwise


1. In a large pan, over medium-high heat, add the oil. Once hot, add the onions and garlic and cook for 3 minutes.

2. Add ground beef and pork and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently. Then add the shaved beef and cook an additional 2 minutes.

3. Stir in the mushrooms, ketchup, birch beer, mustard and spinach and cook for 2-3 minutes until everything is heated through and well combined.

4. Scoop the sloppy Joe mixture onto rolls, top with both cheeses and garnish with the sweet peppers.
