- Pour sauce over ground beef and onion.
- Cook on medium-high until heated through, stirring occasionally.
- You can adjust the amount of tomato juice used depending on how runny or dry you like your sloppy joe.
- Serve on hamburger rolls or regular bread.
My family loved these sandwiches. We barely had any meat leftover. I'm not a fan of hamburger barbecue, so I only had a taste and I loved the tanginess. The sauce had great flavor for being so simple to make. I used 96% lean beef and just added a little garlic. Thanx for sharing this quick, easy recipe!
A very nice barbecue beef! Easy too. Made as posted. A snack size of tomato juice is 3/4 cup. Thank you Chef Skie for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2013.
