This is my Grandmother’s recipe-and it reminds me of her-sweet and tangy! A fast and easy meal and it freezes well. I have never eaten another sloppy joe other than this one so I cannot compare to mixes or cans-all I know is that my family and I love these. I don’t usually measure the spices so use to your own taste. Regarding the vinegar, everyone in my family likes it really tangy so I use 4 Tablespoons but my Dad prefers less so adjust to your own liking. Hope you enjoy as much as I do!
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 cup catsup
- 1 teaspoon mustard
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 -4 tablespoon vinegar (to your taste)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon celery salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- Brown meat in large skillet with onion.
- Drain off fat.
- Add remaining ingredients, blend well, cover, and simmer for about 20 minutes.
- Spoon and serve over toasted hamburger buns (easier to serve open-face style and eat w/ a fork).
I have this recipe in my cookbook; actually made them today. And I was wondering where I got the recipe. Until, of course I just looked here and found that THIS is where that recipe came from LOL. I LOVE these joe's. I will NEVER make that stuff from the can EVER again. Thanks for such a wonderful, go-to recipe.
Sloppy joes are a favorite of mine! Due to sodium issues, I substituted 3 stalks of fresh celery for the celery salt and omitted the additional salt. Very good sloppy joe!
I made this for my DS as a take-home meal and was thoroughly enjoyed, I did add in 2 heaping tablespoonfuls of chopped garlic in place of the garlic powder and 1 tablespoon of crushed chili flakes and a jalapeno pepper (he loves extreme spice) thank you for sharing Sherri!
