Sloppy Joes, Slop Sloppy Joes

Believe it or not but you can actually make your own great tasting sloppy joes. As a kid I always thought that a sloppy joe was made by combining a big can of Manwich with some ground beef. After becoming a wife I have found out that you can make your own sloppy joe sauce that taste even better.

Sloppy Joes

1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup BBQ sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
2 Tbsp Mustard
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp pepper

Preparation: Fry ground beef with onions and garlic; drain fat. Combine all sloppy joe ingredients together and pour sauce over hamburger mixture. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for20 minutes. Serve warm over hamburger buns.

This recipe is great for making up large batchs and freezing.

I did this a few weeks ago and it was sooo good. I didn't use BBQ sauce, but my other ingredients were almost identical to yours..

Thanks for the recipe. I am happy to find one since I just read that the canned stuff has mercury in it (through the high fructose corn syrup).

Epic epic epic Win. I am bachin' it tonite with the kids and tried my own variation on this recipe. The kids never had sloppy joes before, and they LOVED these. I made this recipe my own by replacing brown sugar with 2 parts Maple Syrup and one part Porter beer and of course replaced the meat with a tofu replacement and blended chick peas. We will definitely be adding this to our recipe rolodex. Thanks!
