NIck's Picks: Sloppy Joes

09.11.13 | Nick Finlayson | Comments[2]


A classic meal that's kid friendly for back to school!
1 1/2 Pounds Ground Beef
1 Green Pepper Diced
1/2 Medium Yellow onion Diced
1 Cup Ketchup
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Burger Buns
Brown the beef and drain the fat. While the fat is draining, cook the peppers and onions in the pot, maybe just for a couple of minutes.
Add the beef back to the pot and also add the brown sugar, ketchup and seasonings

Simmer for about 20-30 Minutes stirring often so it doesn't burn. Serve on burger buns to a happy family!

Makes 8-10 Sandwiches

There was a gentlemen named Joseph who was a meat cutter. He refused to call it Sloppy Joes. He always referred to it as "not so messy Joseph's". So in his honor at our house we call it "not so messy Joseph's". Either way it tastes great. :)

I use a similar recipe but not a fan of green pepper, so I use a small amount of GP but I sub some diced tomatoes for filler. My wife adds a shot of Yellow mustard also. either way it's good.
