I’m not a big sloppy joes fan. (Yes, I am American!)

I mean, I eat them, but I don’t go out of my way to do so.

That being said, my family loves them. *Yay for me!* (That’s me rolling my eyes.) ;)

So, tonight I thought I’d be nice and make them something they all like.

Sloppy Joes it was.

~LadyWithTheRedRocker~ These are the best sloppy joes I've ever made! The family devoured them!

I found this recipe at Chef in Training and it looked yummy. I adapted the recipe a little and it was a huge hit!

Even for me!!!

The Best Sloppy Joes

Adapted from Chef in Training

2 ½ lbs. ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
½ cup tomato sauce (I used plain pasta sauce)
2/3 cup BBQ sauce
½ cup ketchup
¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
¼ cup soy sauce
Freshly ground black pepper

Cook hamburger in a large skillet, stirring, until about half the meat it browned. Add the onion and green pepper and continue to cook, stirring and breaking up the meat, until meat is no longer pink and the onions and green peppers are soft. Drain the grease off the meat, green pepper, and onions. Stir in the tomato sauce, BBQ sauce, ketchup, Worcestershire, soy sauce, and pepper, and bring to a boil. Cook until the sauce is slightly thickened, 4 to 5 minutes. You can make the sloppy joe meat up to 2 days in advance and reheat it over low heat or in the microwave.

Serve the sloppy joes, hot, on hamburger buns.

*These freeze well

  1. My husband loves sloppy joes so I stocked up on the Sloppy Joe sauce when it was on sale so I have quite a bit of it but I am LOVING this recipe and I love the cheese on it as well..
