Who hates canned sloppy joe sauce???? I won’t mention the name, but I DO NOT like it! I started making these last fall and I have to say, they make a GREAT comfy food for a warm night (indoors) watching TV. They are super easy and really really good. I usually make them for my husband and myself but I’ve had a few friends try them and they liked ’em a lot too! We like to eat them on Texas Toast but I really could just scoop a big spoonful onto some Ruffles and have some Hillbilly nachos! There are choices with this recipe too… you could add diced onion instead of onion powder… or you could use ground chicken to cut the fat from the beef. Here’s the recipe:
Sloppy Joes (8 servings)
2 lb ground beef 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp prepared mustard
2 c ketchup 1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 c water 1 tsp onion powder
1/4 c brown sugar 1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp + 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1) Brown meat in a medium sized saucepan and drain.
2) Add all the other ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes or until sauce thickens and reduces.
