Almosr everyone has heard of chili cheese fries. I decided to put a little spin on that idea and made Sloppy Fries! I've posted a crock pot version of my sloppy joes once before. This is a quick stove top version. The French fries are a double fry recipe from the Pioneer Woman. I didn't take pictures during the process tonight because I was in a rush, but trust me, it was super simple and quick! This meal is a kid favorite and husband approved!
6 cups vegetable oil or shortening
6 russet potatoes peeled and sliced
1.5 lb ground beef
1 med onion, diced
11/2 cups ketchup
2 tbsp chili sauce
2 tbsp prepared mustard
2 tbsp Worstershire sauce
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp Sriracha (optional)
Salt for seasoning fries
Shredded cheddar cheese for garnish
Brown the beef and onion over med-high heat. Drain the meat and turn heat down to low. In a separate bowl, mix together all the other ingredients. Pour the sauce over the meat mixture and cook on low for an hour.
Soak potatoes slices in cold water for an hour. Change the water after 30 minutes to remove the starch. Heat oil/shortening to 275*. Fry potatoes in batches for 3-4 minutes removing with a slotted spoon. Place the soft fries on a paper towel lined tray. After cooking all the fries, heat the oil/shortening up to 375*. Fry the potatoes a second time for 4-5 minutes. Drain on clean paper towels and sprinkle with salt to taste.
