    I've chosen to submit this recipe because the recipes found on this website for loosemeats, and on other websites, are not the original recipe. The loosemeat was created in 1924 at Ye Old Tavern-now Gus' Family Restaurant on 14th and Jackson St. in Sioux City, Iowa. Nowadays you will find the original sandwich served at Bob's Drive Inn on Hwy 75, LeMars, Iowa just a mile or so out of Sioux City, at The Tastee Inn and Out, on Gordon Drive and at Miles Inn on Leech Ave. among others. If you see a recipe for loosemeats that contains tomato juice-run! A loosemeat is a sloppy joe without the slop-so stay away from anything tomato-ey please! These little sandwiches are great for football parties, slumber parties, with a cold beer on a sunny summer day, or just anytime you want a real taste of Americana cooking that takes just a few minutes with very little cleanup. These are typical Iowa tavern fare. I loved these sandwiches so much when I was a kid and one day I ran into my Grandma's tavern and asked for my usual "tavern". They always came served with a thin sheet of restaurant paper under them. I was so eager I ate my sandwich half way gone before I realized I was eating the paper too:-) After cooking these in the kitchen they were transferred to a portable steamer. This is the original recipe for the little dudes that were served in the Midwest. I cannot account for changes or differences in flavor for other regions of the country, east or west. I learned to make my Grandma's version when I came to spend summers with her in Sioux City between 1958-65. She's the reason I've become a diehard foodie, a "from scratch" cook. My Grandma was a fearless woman who wasn't afraid to tread in unfamiliar waters. In so many ways food brings people together. I had no idea these little sandwiches would be so loved and bring such happiness to people. I've been so touched by the messages I've received from folks who've tried this recipe and then shared their memories w/me! Thanks!! And thank you Recipezaar for creating a place for us to come together and share with each other!

    Recipe #87075

    This is found in my recipe collection under "Mrs. McCann's Barbeque". It was handed down from a neighbor of my great-aunt's sometime in the 1940's. I prefer to use ground round so there isn't so much fat. Gets better the longer it simmers.

    Recipe #15344

    These are always a hit with everyone!

    Recipe #30579

    You don't want to miss this one. The recipe came with my electricity bill, probably some 39 years ago. I tried it and it was the best recipe for Sloppy Joes I have ever had. I've been making it ever since. Great taste and just the right amount of everything.

    Recipe #101475

    I hate sloppy joes. These are the only ones I'll eat! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Easy, fast, from scratch recipe.

    Recipe #67493

    You'll never buy your Sloppy Joe mix out of a can again. Very quick and easy to prepare for busy nights. Serve with Chips and pickles or crips carrots and you can't beat it. Please try this.

    Recipe #71405

    Just the thing for a day when you're wanton something delicious, and a hamburger patty is just too restrictive. Loosen up your inhibitions and pile some loose meat on a bun. Wicked over hot, whipped potatoes as well.

    Spicy!!!! Crock pot recipe! Yes! There is no reason you can't make these stove top. Just simmer till flavors meld and meat is tender. I also puree an optional carrot and red bell pepper for sweetness and extra nutrients for the family

    Good for a potluck or for the times when you have a group over for a game

    Recipe #20602

    This is adapted from an old TOH Quick Cooking recipe that has saved my tail many times. I keep them on hand in the freezer for those crazy busy times when I don't have time to cook.

    Recipe #67233

    Great kid food. You can serve this on a hot dog bun or hamburger bun. Makes a quick and easy lunch.

    Because of my German heritage, I try to use the month of October to cook more German-inspired foods. When my sons were younger, they loved sauerkraut and any dish that contained it. This was a favorite of theirs and I liked that it was a one skillet, easy and tasty sandwich. I served it with German potato salad. Yum!!

    Recipe #142705

    When we were kids, we always called these yip yips. I guess that is a Midwestern thing. I've been looking for a sloppy joe recipe that tasted like my mom's for years (she always just threw it together and I could never get the taste) and finally found it. Since we're Pepsi lovers, I substituted it for the Coca Cola.

    Spicy, meat-filled pita breads. OAMC instructions available.

    Sloppy joes with a twist! Served it with white rice and steamed veggies. An adaptation of a R. Reisman recipe. If the sauce is not thick enough, add a bit of flour or cornstarch and it will do the trick!

    I can't believe that out of almost 40,000 recipes, no-one has posted a recipe for this! These are Iowa's claim to fame, sort of like a cousin to the Sloppy Joe.

    Recipe #41860

    A barbecue-flavored twist on sloppy joes. Recipe is from Kraft.

    Recipe #199785

    This Sloppy Joe recipe is tasty, filling, and packed with veggies! It's a slightly tweaked Cooking Light recipe.
