Sloppy Joe's

Pin It
A while ago I decided to try Sloppy Joe's for the first time.  Yes, I said the first time. I'm sure most of you have your own Sloppy Joe recipe but this one was really yummy so I'm sharing it with you anyway.
These were a hit with my family and I'm sure they will be with yours too.

Here's what you need:
1-1/2 Lbs. ground beef (I use an 80/20 or 85/15 ratio for the most flavor)
1/2 yellow onion, diced
8 oz. can tomato sauce
1/3 cup ketchup
2 Tbs. brown sugar
1 Tbs. apple cider vinegar
2 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1-1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder

Brown the ground beef and onions in a large skillet over med-hi heat until no longer pink.  Drain off any excess fat.
Add the rest of the ingredients and stir to combine.
Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes.
Serve on hamburger buns or sandwich rolls.


Serves 4-6

  1. I can't believe that was your first time making sloppy joes! They look delicious!

  2. My husband could live on Sloppy Joe's lol. Your recipe sounds wonderful!

    1. Thank you for sharing at this week's All my Bloggy Friends - Enjoy your weekend, Michelle :)

  3. What a good idea! It's been a long time since we've had Sloppy Joes around here. I will try your recipe. See if the fam. likes it (I'm pretty sure they'll LOVE it!)

  4. I, also, can't believe that it's your first time. They are good. I should eat them more often. Thank you for the recipe. I like to try new ones. I think mine is a little too sweet.

    We may have met by chance...but we become friends by choice.

  5. Looks pretty good. I have not had sloppy joes in like 10 years. I may give them another shot.
