lean ground beef
1 (10.75 ounce) can
condensed chicken gumbo soup
1 1/4 cups
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
AWESOME!! I still added the small can of tomato paste, and added 1 TBLS (or more to taste) of brown sugar (we like the touch of sweetness it brings to the meal). GREAT STUFF! We liked topping our sloppy joes with cheese and/or pickles but they taste great as is!!
i made this recipe for a wedding shower for my daughter but it was awful. thank god i made it the day before so i could do some heavy duty doctoring up of it. it was so blah.
This is a version of my classic recipe. I dice-up a small onion & brown it together w/1lb. lean ground beef. Drain off any excess fat. Add 1/2tsp. salt, 1/4tsp. ground black pepper, 4T. catsup, 1tsp. wet or dry mustard, 1 can condensed Chicken Gumbo soup & 1/4c. water. You simmer without a lid for about 20min. Another variation is to use 1can vegetable soup & 1/4c. catsup, instead of the Chicken Gumbo soup. Make certain you let this thicken up!
I made this recipe back in the 60's when I was in Girl Scouts! I forgot about it until recently. Sometimes we just scoop this up with corn chips instead of putting it on buns. This is a good and easy recipe!!
I too had this as a child, we called it "Wimpy Burgers". My friends loved coming to my home for this because none of their mothers made it. I too, added 1 TBS worstershire, just a personal preferance, is very good without it as well. Thanks so much for submitting this, brought back fond memories.
Thank you SO much. My mother always made sloppy joes this way and I haven't had them for years!
This recipe is not only wonderful but it brought back many fond memories.
We love this recipe for sloppy joe's. The more traditional tomato based ones can be overpowering at times. My VERY PICKY daughter actually asks me to make these! A very good quick meal on ballgame nites!
Very easy recipe that my mom used to make. She would sauteed a small onion before adding the ground beef and add a small amount of chili powder for a little extra taste. This will always be my favorite recipe from my mom.
