Delicious Lean and Mean BBQ Sloppy Joes

Total Time

A quick and easy recipe for a busy night. I really enjoy this one. I have experimented using other BBQ sauces, but I personally haven't found one that works better than regular flavor Bullseye Brand barbecue sauce. Cooks up thick, rich and saucy. (If I don't have Bullseye, I don't make it.) I found this recipe in a little "bottles and boxes" (recipes using stuff you have in your house)type recipe guide I received free in the mail.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup Bulls Eye bold barbecue sauce (regular flavor)
  • 12 cup finely chopped onion
  • 14 cup finely chopped pepper
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 8 hamburger buns or 8 rolls, of your choice


  1. Brown ground beef and drain off fat.
  2. Add onion, pepper, and BBQ sauce.
  3. Stir till combined, and simmer over medium heat until hot and bubbly (about 10-15 minutes or so.)
  4. Serve on buns.
  5. recipe.

These were very easy and tasted good. They taste *almost* like sloppy joes, but not quite. I'll definitely put these in our regular rotation. Another nice thing about the recipe is that all the ingredients in the recipe are items I always have on hand, so there's no running to the store last minute to get some obscure, expensive ingredient. :)

Very tasty, and easy. I added one cup shredded mozza, then instead of simmering for 15 minutes, I wrapped the filled buns in foil and baked at 350 for about 20 minutes [that way, the buns got a little crusty and warm, which we liked]. I used rather large kaiser-type rolls, and only had enough meat to fill 5 of them, so next time I'll use smaller buns or double the meat.
