I found this recipe on many years ago before I discovered Zaar. Decided to put it here for safe keeping since it's a favorite in our house. I changed just a couple of ingredients to suit the families tastes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large frying pan over med. heat, brown the beef until done.
  2. Add the chopped onion/pepper and saute until just done.
  3. In a bowl, mix remaining ingredients together and pour over the beef/veg. mixture.
  4. Stir until combined.
  5. Cook until desired consistancy is reached.
  6. Aprox. 20 minutes.
  7. Serve on toasted buns of your choice.

The only thing I changed was to use less cumin as it's a spice we like a bit less. The seasonings are perfect. It was very easy to do. I had mine with monterey jack cheese and mustard. Thanks Lori Mama :) Made for Photo tag game

This is a really good sloppy joe recipe. I do like to add chopped mushrooms to this........I saw that in the Joy of Cooking joe recipe and always have added it ever since.

A great recipe that took no time to make but still packed a punch in flavor. Since I don't eat meat, DS was here to give it the nod that yes, this didn't need any other additions/deletions. An easy meal for work-nights and the perfect sloppyjoe recipe Lori. :-)
