I love a good sloppy joe. My favorite kind is the type that is tangy and saucy, and well, sloppy! A few years ago, I learned how to make my own sloppy joe sauce and haven’t looked back since.
Being able to make homemade sloppy joe sauce saves me a trip to the grocery store when I have a pound of ground beef and no idea what to make for dinner. I’ve tweaked my recipe over the years, and now I’m ready to share it!
1 pound ground beef or turkey
salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
4 hamburger buns
1. Combine the ketchup, apple cider vinegar worcestershire sauce, honey, and mustard in a bowl and whisk until a smooth sauce forms. Set aside.
2. Brown the meat in a nonstick skillet over medium heat for 5-7 minutes, or until cooked through.
3. Drain the meat in a strainer and add back to skillet.
4. Stir in sauce and simmer for about five minutes, or until thickened.
5. Place a large spoonful of the sloppy joe mixture on a bun and enjoy.
Yummy! I am saving this recipe! Sloppy joes are one of Will”s favorite meals so I try to make ’em whenever I remember 🙂
Awww yay! I hope you guys enjoy it if you give it a try!
Yum! I kind of forget about sloppy joes. They are hearty and filling though!
I tend to forget about them for a few months and then I remember them when I look at my cookbooks and I try and make them asap since Jimmy and I both love them!
My absolute favorite~~ doesn’t even compare to the jarred crap!! Love you,
Aww, thanks mom!!
This sounds delicious!
Your sloppy Jin’s are the best!
YUM!!! I love sloppy joe so much, which reminds me I haven’t had it in soooo long- ah withdrawals. I always prefer homemade recipes whenever possible, I’m going to jot this one down!!!
Yay! I hope you enjoy it if you give it a try!!
YUMMM. This looks so gooood. DJ would be all about this (and it’s easier than I expected!). Thanks for sharing, Allie!
I don’t think I’ve had a vegetarian/vegan version of a Sloppy Joe (yet), but since there are a number of ingredient options available now that could work, like pulled jackfruit or soy crumbles, I could see myself making and having one!
I bet you would make a delicious meat free sloppy joe!!
Thanks Allie for the recipe I will give it to my mom. your a great cousin.
Thanks Josiah! I hope you guys like it! You’re a great cousin too!!
