    Chef Figuring It Out's Note:

    My father's sloppy joe recipe; my children call him Grandpa Jo - hence the recipe name. He always made it to taste, so I don't have exact quantities.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Brown beef and onion; if using onion powder, add salt to taste.
    2. 2
      Add combination of ketchup, paste, and sauce; the amount used will depend on how much meat. Use more ketchup for a sweeter taste.
    3. 3
      Add chili powder and seasonings. I usually "dust" the meat with the chili powder twice (and yes, this will make it mild, but I have children that won't eat it if I make it spicier) and the italian seasoning once with a few dashes of oregano. Stir those together and let simmer for a minute or so. Taste - add more of the seasonings you want. (If I use closer to two pounds, I usually like more chili powder.).
    4. 4
      After the seasonings are how you want them, add the parmesan cheese.

      We loved your 'Grandpa Joes' ~ Easy to make & very flavorful! I was a little stingy with the chili powder, but other than that . . . Will be keeping your recipe around to make this again! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block recipe tag]
