Wahlburgers Sloppy Joes

Paul Wahlberg shares the Wahlburgers Burger Restaurantā€™s well-loved Sloppy Joes recipe, and it puts the sandwiches from our childhood to shame. The Spicy-Herbed Mascarpone takes it over the top, and you can watch Paul make it on Instagram @PicklerAndBenFood.

Wahlburgers Sloppy Joes
Serves 4


For the spicy-herbed mascarpone:
1/2 cup mascarpone cheese
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, leaves removed from stem, very finely chopped
1 teaspoon fresh parsley, leaves removed from the stem, very finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon fresh rosemary, leaves removed from stems, very finely chopped
1 teaspoon chipotle peppers, seeded, diced
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

For the sloppy joes:
1 pound ground beef, preferably Wahlburgers beef
1 small white onion, small diced
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 (8-ounce) can petite diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon sriracha
1/4 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon dried parsley
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 hamburger buns


1. Make the spicy-herbed mascarpone: In a medium bowl, add mascarpone. Stir in thyme, parsley, rosemary, chipotle peppers, salt, and pepper until well combined.

2. Make the sloppy joes: In a large frying pan over medium heat, cook beef, stirring to break into bite-sized pieces, until cooked through. Drain in strainer, reserving 1 ounce rendered beef fat.

3. Return fat to pan. Add onions and cook until translucent. Stir in paprika and cook 1 minute. Add tomatoes, ketchup, brown sugar, Worcestershire, garlic powder, sriracha, vinegar, parsley, salt, and black pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until liquid starts to reduce and thicken.

4. Stir in cooked beef. Let simmer 5 minutes.

5. Serve on hamburger buns with a dollop of spicy-herbed mascarpone.
