Sloppy Joes with Meatballs instructions

  1. Take half the sausage and add the fennel seed. Form into tiny meatballs..
  2. Take the other half of the sausage add the Italian spices. Use half the mixture to form meatballs..
  3. Add Parmesan cheese and garlic to the last part of sausage mixed with Italian seasonings. Now fry them in batches. No need in keeping them separate this is going to give you layers of flavors..
  4. Turn as needed if you don't get them done now it's ok they will finish cooking in the sauce when you add them later. Just make sure to get a good cook on the outside to make them firm..
  5. After you set aside the meatballs. Add the ground beef to the pan. Dice the onion. Add the onion to the beef and brown. Chop the beef as it cooks. This will make the beef be more plentiful in the sauce for a more meaty sloppy Joe..
  6. Chop the tomatoes, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Salt the tomatoes and add to the ground beef. Stir and sauté for 7 minutes..
  7. Add the two mustards, and the french dressing. Add the meatballs and stir well..
  8. After8 minutes add the tomato sauce, sugar, and simmer covered for 12 minutes. Add the tomato paste, and capers, and stir well. Simmer 3 minutes the sprinkle in the red wine vinegar. Cover simmer 20 minutes. Stir occasionally. If the ground beef is high fat skim the top with a spoon..
  9. Let rest 15 minutes covered. Add mayonnaise, cayenne pepper, and pickle to your buns add the sloppy joe mix. Serve, I hope you enjoy!!!!.
