My husband and kids request them all the time! They seriously get giddy when they find out it’s sloppy joe night! I usually double the recipe- it doesn’t take any more effort, and then I can save half in the freezer for another night! Want to avoid hamburger buns? This is yummy on top of a baked potato, or spooned over some oven roasted diced sweet potatoes!
- 1 lb ground beef or ground turkey
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 green bell pepper, chopped
- 6 cloves garlic, minced
- 3/4 c. ketchup
- 1 tsp. mustard
- 3 Tbl brown sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp. red wine vinegar
- 3/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 3 Tbsp. tomato paste
- 1/3-1/2 c. water to reach desired consistency
- salt & pepper
In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the meat and drain excess grease if necessary. Add the onions, bell pepper, and garlic and cook until onions and peppers start to soften. Add the remaining ingredients. Turn heat to low, and cover with a lid. Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add a little water if needed. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
