Homemade Sloppy Joes

“Despite the name of this iconic retro dish, the secret to a great sloppy joe is a thick, rich, almost dry consistency, which allows the sandwich to be eaten with your hands. Serve on hamburger buns.”

“very yummy. homemade is so much better . Love this site !!!! i added celery diced real small and added the garlic in the beginning.. and the last cup of water ?? id do half that next time..using lean meat is the way to go !!”

“This is a great recipe! I especially like the fact that it includes mustard, which is left out of many recipes. You don’t taste mustard, but it adds something that you really miss if it isn’t there. If you don’t have Dijon mustard, using whatever kind of mustard you have would be better than no mustard. I left out the black pepper, because I’m allergic to it.”

“I love this recipe. I scale it to use 1 lb. of ground beef, and cut the brown sugar to just about a teaspoon. I also like my joes pretty sloppy, so I cook the mixture, partially covered, for about 30 minutes instead of the full cook time. I served these on Pumpkin Sandwich Rolls with jack-o’-lantern faces for a great Halloween-themed dinner!”

“Delicious recipe! I tend to cook 3 to 5 lbs of ground beef at a time with puréed onion, garlic, and tomato and then use in different recipes during the week to cut down on cooking time. I mixed the sauce ingredients with 1 cup of water and a dash of paprika instead of cayenne pepper and 1 tbs of dried mustard (was out of Dijon) and simmered until beginning to thicken. I then added precooked ground beef and simmered until thick. Turned out with a lot more flavor than the canned sloppy joe sauce!”
