Auntie Dearest Sloppy Joes

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Sandy in Oklahoma

Sloppy joes seems to be one of those foods that each family has their own special recipe. This is my sister's recipe. I like it because it is made from common ingredients that I always have in the kitchen and it can easily be changed. You want sweeter..add more sugar. You don't like peppers,leave them out. It is a simple basic recipe, play with it and make it your own individual recipe.

Good basic recipe. I didn't have any green peppers, so I left them out. I used the pickle juice instead of vinegar and it ended up sweeter than I actually like. If I use this recipe again, I will leave the sugar out or use vinegar instead of pickle juice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown meat, pepper, onion and garlic in large skillet. Cook until no pink remains in meat and drain well.
  2. Stir all remaining ingredients except milk into meat mixture. Place over low heat and stir in milk. Cook until thickened. This will happen quickly so don't walk off and leave it cooking.
  3. Serve on toasted buns.
