Shrinking Single’s Sloppy Joe

To make this for one I used the following ingredients:

  • 140g of minced beef
  • ½ tbs of olive oil
  • ¼ of a brown onion
  • ½ tsp of minced garlic
  • 2 tbs of tinned tomatoes (you can use tomato puree – sauce if you are in the US…)
  • 1 tbs of tomato paste
  • 1 tbs of tomato sauce (ketchup if you are in the US…)
  • 1 tbs of packed brown sugar
  • ½ tbs of soy sauce
  • 1 hamburger bun

To make this in the Billyboil I heated some oil in the inner Billyboil pot and browned the beef with the onion and minced garlic on a medium high heat.  I then popped in all the other ingredients, except of course for the hamburger bun.  I then cooked it on the stove for 15 minutes until everything reached a constant temperature and then popped the inner Billyboil pot in the outer part of the Billyboil.  I then left it for three hours.
