Sliced Steak Sloppie Johnnies | www.tasteandtellblog.com

It’s official – put “sloppy” in front of the name of any sandwich, and I’m going to want to try it!!  Good thing Rachael Ray is the queen of different varieties of sloppy joes.  I’ve tried several, and you can pretty much bet they are going to be a good sandwich!  (Here are just a few that I’ve tried:  Sloppy Buffalo Joes, Hula Joes, and Tango Joes.)

This sandwich didn’t disappoint.  It’s a little different, because it’s not made with ground meat like most sloppy “joes” are.  Instead, it uses flat iron steak.  Unfortunately, I’ve never been able to find flat iron steaks here, so I substituted flank steak.  Flank steak isn’t my favorite cut of beef, but it did the job.  But really, to me, the star of this sandwich was the bbq sauce.  It seems like lately, RR has been making a lot of bbq sauces from scratch, and I really love the idea.  This sauce was delicious!!

And stay tuned for next week – I’ll be showing you the side dish she prepared with this sandwich – it was a winner, too!!

Sliced Steak Sloppy Johnnies
From 30 Minute Meals

Serves 4

Total time: 30 minutes

4 (8 to 10-ounce) flat iron steaks or any thin cut tender steak, no more than 1-inch thick
2 large cloves garlic, sliced
2 small sprigs fresh marjoram or oregano or a generous sprinkle of dried herbs
2 sprigs rosemary
salt and freshly ground black pepper
extra virgin olive oil

½ cup beef stock
1 cup ketchup
2 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
coarsely ground black pepper

1 medium shallot, peeled
1 rounded tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons agave syrup or 1 teaspoon superfine sugar
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
2 cups slaw salad mix or shredded cabbage
celery salt
salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 (6-inch) ciabatta rolls or other large crusty rolls, split and toasted

Optional Garnishes:
Chopped raw onion or red onion
Chopped drained Italian giardiniera hot pickled vegetables
Chopped pickles

Bring the steaks to room temperature before cooking. Put them in a shallow dish and rub both sides of the meat liberally with garlic. Season with marjoram, rosemary, and salt and pepper, to taste. Drizzle with a liberal dose of extra-virgin olive oil and let marinate for 15 minutes.

Preheat a cast iron griddle or large grill pan over medium-high heat. Grill the steaks for 4 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Remove the steaks from the grill to a cutting board and let rest for a few minutes before thinly slicing against the grain.

In a small pot over medium heat, add the beef stock, ketchup, chopped garlic, Worcestershire, dark brown sugar, vinegar and lots of black pepper, to taste. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes for the perfect sloppy sauce.

Grate the shallot into a bowl and add the mustard, agave or sugar, and wine vinegar. Whisk in extra-virgin olive oil until well combined. Add the slaw and toss to coat. Season with celery salt, and salt and pepper, to taste.

Pile the sliced meat on the bottom halves of the bread and top each with lots of sauce, slaw and onions and/or hot vegetable relish and pickles. Cover with the top half of the bread and serve.

    That must be comforting!

    I saw RR use flat iron steak before on her talk show to make a Jim Beam sloppy joe. I have been dying to try that version but this one looks mighty tasty too.

    And I am so happy to see the “Mr. Linky’ back!

    These sound incredible!

    I made rach's buffalo sloppy joes before the blog and LOVED them. I think the messier a sandwich is, the better it usually tastes. This sounds delicious! Love the homemade bbq sauce.

  5. ARLENE says:

    This looks really good. I'm not a fan of the usual ground beef sloppy Joes, but I think I'd love this variety.

  6. teresa says:

    Smile. When I hear the word "sloppy" I get excited too. Especially when I know that RR's BBQ sauce is involved. I love the sauces she makes from scratch. Thanks for sharing, love. I hope you have a wonderful Sunday. Rest, rejuvenate and spread some love!
