Clamato Kitchen | Sriracha Sloppy Joes


Searching for a sloppy joe recipe with some bite and and an extra savoury depth of flavour? You’ll love my recipe for Clamato sriracha sloppy joes.

When I started tinkering around with this recipe as part of my Clamato Kitchen series, I thought I had come up with a pretty yummy idea. After snarfing down a mess from my first batch of joes, I realised I’d made something way more delicious than I had anticipated.


Ingredients (for at least eight servings)

  • 1 tablespoon of cooking oil;
  • 500g mince;
  • 2-3 tablespoons of soy sauce;
  • 1 tablespoon of vinegar;
  • 1-2 crushed garlic cloves;
  • 1 finely diced onion;
  • 1 finely diced bell pepper;
  • 400g passata;
  • 4 tablespoons of Sriracha;
  • 2 tablespoons of American mustard;
  • 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce;
  • 3 tablespoons of ketchup (I like Hellman’s Ketchup Sweetened with Honey);
  • 250ml of Clamato;
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste;
  • Chopped parsley to taste;
  • Diced spring onions to taste.


  • In a large saucepan, brown the mince in vegetable oil at a medium-low heat;
  • Pour in the soy sauce and vinegar; mix well;
  • Add the onion and garlic, onion and bell pepper;
  • When the onion starts to go soft, add the passata, sriracha, mustard, Worcestershire
  • sauce and ketchup; mix well;
  • Pour in the Clamato;
  • Bring to a boil and then let simmer;
    Most of the ingredients are to taste. As the mix cooks, taste it and adjustto your preferences;
  • Before serving add black pepper and parsley to taste and gently stir into the mix;
  • Garnish with spring onions.


I like my sloppy joes served in a burger bun, as a dip for nachos works too. If you want to add cheese, I recommend Red Leicester as a good pairing.
