I LOVE my Fall Southern Living magazines. They are always so festive and so full of fun recipes. It seems like dinner is just not a huge priority at my house these days - Just the dynamics of family members at home at different times. I hate to spend a ton of time cooking - when no one is there to eat it!
I found this fun, easy recipe in my October Southern Living. It was quick and easy and tasty - perfect combination! I loved the added touch of coleslaw!
Sloppy Cola Joe Dogs (adapted from Southern Living)
1 medium red onion, thinly sliced ( I used only half)
1 1/2 lbs ground round
1 (6oz) can tomato paste
1 garlic clove, minced
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 cup Dr. Pepper
1/2 cup jarred sliced pepperoncini salad peppers
ground red pepper/salt to taste
8 hot dog buns or hoagie buns
store bought coleslaw
Brown ground beef and onion over medium-high heat - stirring often. Drain when meat is brown and crumbly; Return meat mixture to skillet and add tomato sauce, garlic and Worcestershire sauce. Mix well. Stir in Dr. Pepper and 1/2 cup water. Cook for 6-8 minutes or until bubbly. I let mine thicken. Remove from heat and add pepperoncinis and salt and red pepper to taste. Serve mixture over warm hot dog buns or hoagie rolls and top with coleslaw!!
