Brisket Sloppy Joes

  • Active Time 20m
  • Total Time 30m

4 servings, about 1 cup each

Chop the slow-cooked brisket and load up the sauce with veggies and some sweet and spicy seasonings and you get a great alternative to the traditional Sloppy Joe filling. These are best served open-face with a fork and knife. If you like your Joes extra sloppy, add more sauce along with the meat.
