  • Brown bison with onions and peppers drain halfway through browning but not second time
  • Add all the other ingredients except salt and pepper
  • Simmer until correct consistency. Not to dry not to runny I pull spoon through mixture if path stays clear for 20 seconds it is correct consistency. If sauce fills path right away to liquid
  • Butter rolls cut side and broil or grill in pan


Many variations on Sloppy Joe's include adding cheese to the mix or topping with cheese.  I do not prefer this but if you want to jazz it up go for it.
