" Don't Bother With the Canned Stuff" - Sloppy Joes

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

Simple weeknight meal that my family really likes. I used to make the canned stuff (and was happy with it for a no fuss dinner), but now that I've come up with this recipe that I put together from reading all different ones I'll never go back to that again. This is just as easy and tastes way better.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown beef til no longer pink. Strain away any fat and return meat to pan.
  2. Add steak seasoning, onion and pepper. Cover and cook about 5 minutes til veggies are tender.
  3. Add remaining ingredients. Simmer about 20 minutes till mixture thickens.
  4. Serve on hamburger buns or rolls -- Enjoy!

This was delicious and so easy to make. It was a little sweet for me but everyone else in my family liked it that way. I would recommend tasting the sauce before adding the brown sugar if you don't like it too sweet. I'll definitely being making this again.

mmm... the smell made my mouth water. i browned beef expecting to make tacos for dinner, then to my dismay, we were out of seasoning! i quickly found this recipe and was so happy to see i had everything on hand. also not too bad if you're on weight watchers! i had one serving, it was only SIX points. serve with a salad, carrots and water and it's a great quick meal :)!! kudos!
