A reader submitted this Spoonburgers Recipe to the GRIT Recipe Box.
Sharon Shelton, of Red Oak, Iowa, wrote hoping someone had a recipe for Sloppy Joes using Dr. Pepper.
While it might sound like an unusual request, many of our readers knew exactly the recipe Sharon was looking for. Joyce Wheeler, of Forest, Virginia, and Jim and Marianne Bielmaier, of Tularosa, New Mexico, sent the same recipe from a Cooking with Dr. Pepper cookbook. The Belmaiers are originally from Iowa, having lived in Webster City for 32 years.
1 pound ground beef
1 clove garlic, minced
1 medium onion, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup Dr. Pepper
1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Few drops Tabasco or hot pepper sauce
In large skillet, brown beef, breaking into small pieces. Add garlic, onion and salt; cook 5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and simmer about 20 minutes or until thick. Spoon onto toasted hamburger buns. Yields 8 servings.
