Super Sloppy Joes

With the state of the world we need to reach out to our family and friends and enjoy some comfort food when we can. A favorite memory of mine was my mom’s sloppy joes. It came out of a can, with love.  A can of sloppy joes is easy and when served with love, perfect. When your ready for a great homemade version, try this.

Super Sloppy Joes

2 lbs Hamburger

1 green pepper, seeds removed and diced

1 onion, peeled and diced

4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced

1 can tomato paste (8oz)

3 cups ketchup

1 Tbsp Chili Powder

1 Tbsp mustard

1 Tbsp Worcester sauce

1 Tbsp brown sugar

1 Tbsp Olive oil

2 tomatoes diced

  1. Sauté hamburger till brown. Drain grease and set hamburger aside.
  2. Sauté onions & peppers in olive oil for 5 min.
  3. Add tomato paste and hamburger mix in remaining ingredients and simmer 30 min.

Cooking tips:  

  • Serve on onion roll with a fruit salad.
  • Get all of your ingredients and equipment out ahead of time, especially your pot holders.
  • These make great sliders.
  • A healthier twist use ground turkey instead of ground hamburger. 
  • Let the kids help, they love to mix it up.
  • Hosting a party-it’s inexpensive and holds great in a slow-cooker.

Take care!
