Homemade Sloppy Joes | Anchors Aweigh


Homemade Sloppy Joes

Remember Sloppy Joes? Or as one of the Olsen twins calls it in It Takes Two, the big gooey messy burger? I told Parker I think it had been at least 10 years since I had eaten one, but I saw this recipe and instantly wanted to bring the Joe back from my childhood. Sloppy Joes are just a fun, easy weeknight meal that is very husband and kid friendly. Plus, this recipe really couldn't be simpler to throw together in a flash. I served it with sweet potato fries and corn on the cob, and the combination was perfect. I'll be making these Joes again!

Ingredients (makes 8-10 burgers):
1 lb ground beef
1 small onion, diced
1 10.75 ounce can tomato soup, diluted
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp mustard
1/4 tsp garlic powder
hamburger buns

1. Brown ground beef in skillet. Drain fat if necessary, then add in onion and saute a few minutes until tender.
2. Stir in soup, tomato sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and garlic powder. Simmer 10 minutes, stirring often.
3. Serve on buns and eat up! Eat like a hamburger or eat open-faced with a fork if you're feeling fancy and don't want it all over your face. We opted for the messy face option- enjoy!

Sloppy Joes always remind me of my youth. My mom used to make them on those nights that we were all running around in a million different directions - delicious comfort food! Thanks for sharing your recipe!
