Bachelor Sloppy Joes

Recipe by  

"This my personal sloppy joe recipe. I have tweaked it to have all my favorite ingredients. Not one of them overpowers the other. I hope you like it, as it makes a great lunch or game-day sandwich for the family. I generally serve it on a better quality hamburger bun with Kettle® potato chips."

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef to the skillet and break into smaller bits with a spatula as it cooks; cook until browned on one side, 3 to 5 minutes. Turn beef and add onion, bell pepper, and celery. Put a cover on the skillet and continue to cook until beef is completely browned and crumbly, 2 to 5 minutes more.
  2. Stir vinegar, mustard, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic powder into the beef mixture; season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low and simmer mixture, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are completely tender, about 15 minutes.

This is terrible. Not enough sauce for the amount of meat. The sauce is not even a little sloppy joe-like. Added bbq, salsa, and cholula.

Good, very good - BUT - to me, Sloppy Joes have to have some tomato. I had some leftover Classico Sweet Basil sauce in the fridge so I added about a cup to the mix. I wonder if tomato or tomato sauce got accidently left out of this recipe as even in the accompanying photo, it looks tomatoey!

Great! Sweet and tangy.
