I heart Sloppy Joes. I have ever since I was a little kid. How can you not? Meat simmered in a delectable sauce and piled on a toasty bun. They are saucy, messy and scrumptious. And these Sriracha BBQ Slopppy Joes are no exception.
While going through all of my recipes for the redesign of the blog, I discovered that I only have one recipe for Sloppy Joes on here. ONE. Upon realizing that, I decided that I needed to remedy that ASAP and made these Sloppy Joes using the Sriracha BBQ sauce from this meatloaf. They were amazing friends and made me realize one thing, I do not make sloppy joes nearly enough.
You may have noticed that in that last paragraph I mentioned the redesign. That’s right, we’re still working on it. And by we I mean Ryan. He’s been putting in hours upon hours for the last few months working on it. Sweetheart right? I think so.
And now, on Sunday, after 4 years, Life’s Ambrosia will have a whole new look so be sure to come check it out. I’ve been watching Ryan (and giving my 2 cents) for the last few months and I am so excited for the new look. I have wanted to share it with you for so long and now we finally can. I hope you all will love it as much as I do!
In the meantime, make these sloppy joes because, well, they are yummy. That is all.
