Chef Shamy’s home-made Sloppy joe recipe is a great way to try our compound butter in a recipe.

Homemade Garlic Sloppy Joes

Homemade vs. Canned

When I proposed the idea of making Sloppy Joes with our Garlic Butter, I was met with some skepticism. Sloppy Joes? they said. Gross, they said.

I suppose if you think of Sloppy Joes coming from a can, then yes, you might not have great memories. But homemade is better. Like anything else you make, homemade is better. And when homemade is so easy, it’s even more worth it. In fact, you probably have everything you need for this recipe in your pantry already!

Gone are the days of meat sauce from a can. Make it at home, and make it delicious!

Garlic Butter Twice

Chef Shamy Garlic Butter makes everything taste better. So any recipe that can use the Garlic Butter in more than one way is a win for me.

Not only does the Garlic Butter give the meat sauce a great flavor, it adds a lot to the bun. Don’t be shy. Spread that stuff on both sides of the bun and toast it. It’ll be the best Sloppy Joe you’ve ever had.
