Veal Sloppy Joe

Veal Sloppy Joe

Sometimes the simplest meals are ultimately family favorites like this Veal Sloppy Joe, especially when you dial it up with veal. You'll need a big bun and a giant stack of napkins to handle this juicy, saucy, meaty Veal Sloppy Joe. Things could get messy so don't say we didn't warn you!
Feeling brave and want some more bold flavors, try adding bacon and toast the bun so it doesn’t get soggy. Some delicious side dishes that pair well with sloppy joes are coleslaw, mac & cheese, and veggies like potatoes and corn. Really, any other family favorite side would pair well.
This here is a classic old-fashioned recipe with a veal twist! It’s a must try for sure! Another family friendly dish that would be perfect for you to try next are our Tex Mex Veal Stuffed Shells! They are mouth watering good.
