Sloppy Joes

  • Sloppy Joes

    1 pound lean ground beef
    1/4 cup chopped onion
    1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard
    3/4 cup ketchup
    3 teaspoons brown sugar
    salt to taste
    ground black pepper to taste

    In a medium skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef, onion, and green pepper; drain off liquids.
    Stir in the garlic powder, mustard, ketchup, and brown sugar; mix thoroughly. Reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  • I normally follow the recipe above however last night I decided to experiment:

    2 pounds ground burger, cooked
    3 Tablespoons Onion Powder
    1 1/2 Tablespoons Garlic Powder
    2 cups tomato sauce
    1/2 cup ketchup
    1/2 tablespoon horseradish mustard
    A dash of apple cider vinegar
    1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
    A few dashes of liquid smoke
    1 teaspoon smoked paprika
    Salt and Pepper
    McCormick's Garlic and Bell Pepper Seasoning generously applied
    2 Tablespoons raw sugar
    Added enough water to make it a wee bit more sloppy.

    Mix everything together over medium heat for about 10-15 minutes, serve. This had a nice mix of a slightly BBQ sweetness but classic sloppy joe tang It hit the spot.

  • New recipe was awesome.
