"I'm just beginning to cook so my recipes are pretty quick and simple. This recipe is a really simple, quick, and tasty 'Sloppy Joe.' This is what we are having tonight before we go to the football game. You can also let this simmer in a slow cooker after browning the ground beef if you prefer." — RetiredDad9877

1 1/2 teaspoons
dry mustard powder
white or wheat hamburger buns
This is a perfect recipe for anyone wanting to avoid spiciness and still enjoy a sloppy joe! I followed the recipe exactly, weighing the ketchup which amounted to 3/4 cup. This is truly "simple, quick, and tasty" as stated in the introduction. Thank you RetiredDad9877 for sharing!!
It was really delicious! My 14-year old ate THREE Sloppy Joes, my husband ate one open-faced Sloppy Joe (which is probably the equivalent of TWO) and I ate one. The only complaint that my husband had was that they were a bit dry. Next time, I think I will add a 5-ounce can of tomato sauce and increase the amount of spices so that the flavor isn't diluted.
My family absolutely loved it. Especially my fiance. Everyone had about three or four.
Simple. Traditional. Not too sweet or spicy. I like to substitute BBQ sauce for the ketchup and add a can of diced tomatoes.
Better than Manwich in a can... added 1/2 cup green bell pepper. Yum yum yum.
Yummy, and not at all sloppy.
I've tried several sloppy joe recipes and this was by far the best. I will definitely make it again. It was easy, used ingredients I keep on pleased the whole family. I buy hamburger in bulk, pre brown it and freeze it in 1 or 2 lb packages. I simply microwaved the pre-cooked meat, cooked the onion and celery, stirred it all together and warmed it through. Definitely making this again.
Can use pickle juice instead of vinegar.
