Sloppy Joes

Recipe by Susan1

This is found in my recipe collection under "Mrs. McCann's Barbeque". It was handed down from a neighbor of my great-aunt's sometime in the 1940's. I prefer to use ground round so there isn't so much fat. Gets better the longer it simmers.

This was great. Made it a couple times, already. Most ingredients are usually on hand anyway. Beats the heck out of canned or boxed mixes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook meat slowly in skillet with salt and onion.
  2. Meanwhile, make sauce by mixing together all other ingredients and cooking slowly over low heat for 15 minutes.
  3. Drain (not much to drain if you use ground round) and add meat.
  4. Let simmer for at least an hour, stirring from time to time, to let meat absorb the sauce.
  5. Serve on toasted hamburger buns.
