This is the recipe my husband and I came up with to suit our taste. Many recipes use ketchup and they were to sweet.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown ground beef and onion; drain.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and simmer 15 minutes.
  3. Serve on hamburger buns with your favorite chips.

This recipe is amazing. A great replacement to sloppy joe mix. I did add a dash of Worcester sauce, whi9ch gave great flavor.

Very, very good. I took the liberty of adding some granulated garlic and about 1/4 cup finely chopped celery to the beef and onions. This is a simple recipe with a lot of taste. It is not overpowering with spices, like the prepared or canned mixes and is not too sweet. It also gives you the option of adding a bit more sugar or vinegar to suit your taste. Economical, too - good recipe for a "starving student". As far as I am concerned it is a keeper. Thank you.
