Recipe by TP4883

This recipe was given to me by a friend who is a celebrated chef - oddly enough - it was not something he concocted - it was his sisters recipe. Simply put it is the best sloppy joe I have ever had.

Excellent sloppy joes. I made this into mini joes for our appetizer night. These taste just like Manwiches without the preservatives. It has that same sweet taste you get from the can stuff. I used red peppers because that is what I had available so that would have also added to the sweetness of these delicious guys. I served them in mini buns that I toasted first. These are a keeper. Thanks for posting. Made for Spring PAC 2011.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large pan, I use a large electric skillet, brown the ground beef and sausage. Drain off the fat.
  2. Add remaining ingredients to the pan except for the flour and mix well.
  3. Cook on low heat, stirring occasionally breaking up any large chunks of meat.
  4. Once mixture has cooked through (approximately 60 mins) and is slightly thickend sift flour over the top and mix in well to further thicken.
  5. Note: This can also be made in a crockpot, simply put the browned meats in the crock pot - add the remaining ingredients except for flour, cook on low 6-8 hours and then turn to high and stir in the flour to thicken.
