Sloppy Joes

11 Oct

My guy saw a can of Sloppy Joe at the store & said “why don’t we make some?”, so we did! They were great.

Time: 30 minutes               Serves: 6

Ingredients


  • 1 1/2 lbs ground beef (we used ground round)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp paprika (smoked if possible)
  • 3/4 tsp cumin
  • 3/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp + brown sugar (according to your tastes, we went a little sweet)
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard (prepared)
  • 3/4 tbsp vinegar (we used apple cider vinegar)
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire
  • 1 8oz can tomato sauce
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • To serve


  • buns
  • shredded mild cheddar cheese (optional)

How to make it


  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add beef and begin to brown. Add water to skillet. Add onions and garlic and continue to brown, stirring to cook evenly. Drain most of the drippings. Return to heat and add remaining ingredients. Mix well then turn heat to low and cover. Simmer for 20 minutes. Serve on bun, topped with cheddar cheese if desired.
