This American favourite makes a deliciously messy treat and is a tasty way to use mince beef. Made in half an hour, your little helpers will love assembling their own Sloppy Joe's and eating it, too. 
Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and cook the chopped onion, and celery for 5 minutes over a high heat, stirring often. Add the steak mince, breaking up well, and cook for 5 minutes, or until browned.
In a bowl, combine the BBQ sauce, tomato purée, English mustard, crushed garlic and brown sugar. Stir into the pan containing the mince mixture and turn the heat down to medium. Cook, stirring well, for another 10-15 minutes then season to taste.
Assemble the sloppy Joe's as if they were burgers: divide the shredded between the burger roll bottoms, spoon the meat on top and finish with a slice of cheese followed by the top half of the burger roll.
