Homemade (not from a can) Sloppy Joes
Would you believe my hubby thought Sloppy Joes came from a can!? It took me a long time to convince him that, just because something is sold that way, it doesn’t mean that it is actually meant to be eaten! Sloppy Joes are soo easy to make and it can all be done in one pot too – so there’s minimal mess. How can it be any easier eating meat from a can!? Gross!! This is a huge crowd pleaser in our house and even our pickiest eater chows down on it. Pair it up with some delicious fresh bread and a nice Dill Pickle and you’re all set!
1 lb ground beef
1 cup ketchup
4 TBSP water
2 TBSP brown sugar
2 tsp Worcestershire
2 tsp yellow mustard
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp onion powder
½ tsp salt
bread or burger buns
Here’s all you have to do:
1. Brown the beef and drain off the grease.
2. Stir in the rest of ingredients – all of them – just dump them right in there and mix them up. Bring it to a boil.
3. Reduce the heat and let it simmer for 30-40 minutes. Just give it a stir every now and then
Come on now….that was easy enough for even the Hubbs to cook up!
