Ground Meat

Momma’s Sloppy Joe’s

Sorry I’ve been MIA.  My computer has been evil and refusing to allow me to do anything functional!  Anyway, we are up and running for the moment!

So, I promised a dear friend I would post this a while back and kept forgetting!  My Mom has made this recipe for years, and we all love it!  Only problem is measurements:  their ALL GUESSES!!!

So, here are my roughly thrown together ‘directions:  brown 2 lbs ground meat (turkey or beef)
Add in a LOT of ketchup!  Momma uses only ketchup, I add a couple of small cans of tomato paste.  Your choice!  Just add until it is at the juice/sloppy level you like.
Add about 1 1/2 tbsp mustard.  Stir in.
Add a handful of brown sugar.  Sprinkle it around and stir.
In anxious starvation, I totally forgot to take an after picture!  Sorry!  Just serve on bread, buns work.  We use whatever we have!  If it’s too sweet, add mustard.  Too sour?  Add brown sugar.  Just add, taste, adjust until it is how you like it!  Hope you like it as much as we do!  Let me know any modifications you like!  I’m always looking to mix things up!
Have an awesome week!!!

    This sounds like such a good recipe for sloppy joes, thank you so much for sharing! I have never made them from scratch before, I bet they taste amazing!

    This sounds good, I love sloppy joes. My mother used to make them all the time, they were so hot, I would pour a little ice tea in mine to cool them off. But I was a young girl at the time, and very hungry. Thanks for sharing, a mother’s food is always a great memory.

    Sloppy Joes are always popular with kids and adults. They’re a great go-to for a quick, easy meal. This recipe looks pretty similar to the one we use. Sounds tasty to me.
