1

Prep and cook the sloppy joe filling

  • Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Cut a small corner from the ground beef packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the beef, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring to break up the meat, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the sloppy joe sauce base and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] water and cook until the sauce is thickened slightly and the beef is cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the sloppy joe filling cooks, prepare the coleslaw and buns.

2

Make the coleslaw

In a large bowl, toss together the cabbages, carrots, and coleslaw dressing. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

3

Toast the buns

In a medium frying pan, place the buns, cut sides down, and cook over medium-high heat until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes. Alternatively, toast them in a toaster oven.

Serve

Place the bun bottoms, cut sides up, on individual plates and top with the sloppy joe filling. Spoon on the coleslaw and top with as many pickled jalapeños as you like. Close with the bun tops. Serve the remaining coleslaw on the side.
