  • Ready In

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 7 to 10 minutes; drain and discard grease. Return skillet and beef to stove and reduce heat to medium-low.
  2. Stir chili sauce, mustard, brown sugar, and vinegar into the ground beef; simmer until the sauce thickens, 5 to 10 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If desired, you can also saute 1/4 cup diced onions and 1/4 cup diced green peppers until tender before adding the ground beef.



I made this it was so good I did not add mustard but I did brown sliced onion to put on top of bun before adding sloppy joes for those who do not like onions.

I love this it tasted like manwich but it home made from what I had in my kitchen I just had to buy the chilie sauce and the hamburger

I had a different kind of chili sauce and turned out very spicy so I have to try this over again with a different chili sauce.But other than that it was tasty!

excellent addition to the onions ,pepper, mixed in 1/4 cup fine chopped celery

made this using ground turkey breast. added garlic powder amd pepper while cooking the turkey. turned out great!

I made this for our family reunion and received loads of raves. I did, however, omit the mustard and vinegar, but added diced roasted red peppers. Yummy!!!!!!

This was pretty good. I thought the vinegar was a bit much and will probably leave it out next time. Hubby liked it!

It was pretty good. I'd have to make some changes to the recipe before it would be a favorite. It's very quick & easy to make.

Amazing and so easy!My kids new favorite.
