Question of the day

How do you make your sloppy joes? I thought everyone made them the same but we don’t.

    Well how do you make yours??

  2. Joy says:

    I use Manwhich now but I used to use a combo of ketchup, mustard and I’d cut up a small onion. I hate the peppers but both my boys like the Manwhich they ate somewhere else.

  3. Jenny says:

    meat, brown sugar, onions, peppers, tomato sauce, diced tomato, tomato paste, red wine vinegar, worcestershire sauce, salt & pepper

    • Joy says:

      I’d rather try yours Jenny. I don’t really care for Manwhich. Yours sounds good.

    • Joy says:

      I need measurements Jenny. At least until I make it once.

      • Jenny says:

        It’s a Rachael Ray recipe. I don’t measure anymore. But I went and found the recipe for you:
        1 1/4 ground beef
        1/4 cup brown sugar
        1 med. onion- chopped
        1 small red pepper- chopped
        1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
        1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
        2 cups tomato sauce
        2 tablespoon tomato paste
        Put meat in pan, add brown sugar. when meat has browned add onion & red pepper. Reduce heat to medium and cook 5 min. Add vinegar stirring briefly to reduce, add worcestershire, tomato sauce, & paste. Reduce heat to simmer and cook 5 min. longer.

    • Joy says:

      Thanks Jenny. I will for sure try this. It’s why I asked. I’m not crazy about the way I make them and know other people make them different.

    • Joy says:

      No kidding Jason.

    I use Manwich, I don’t add anything to it.

  5. Sue says:

    I use Manwich too. I like the flavor and it’s easy! Jenny, post your recipe!

  6. SKL says:

    I don’t, ha ha! If I did, I’d probably just use Manwich.

    I make them different every time, because I don’t have a recipe. So pretty much… brown the ground beef with some chopped onion, a BUNCH of minced garlic (because you can never have too much garlic), salt and pepper. Drain the grease. Return to pan, add some tomato sauce and a pinch or two (or more) of brown sugar to taste. That’s the basics of it. I serve them open-faced on hamburger buns, and often add a slice or two of american cheese.

    Depending on my mood that day, I may or may not add: Wooster sauce or liquid smoke (only a drop or two at a time), or I might switch out the tomato sauce for barbecue sauce (Bulls-eye Hickory). I might also add some green pepper to the saute phase, if I have it.

    I really just start with the beef and start throwing things at it until it tastes right.

    I checked with Maxine….She says brown some ground beef and add a can of Manwich! Seriously, though, I don’t cook but my daughter adds a little onion and brown sugar. They’re always very tasty when she makes them.
