I am looking for a recipe for sloppy joes. I had one and lost it in when we moved. I know there are so many recipes on the web but I am looking for one that people already like, as the last batch we made was not a winner. Thanks!
This is my Sister's recipe, which I always loved, as I did her. She died five years ago at 66.
Delicious, even if a tad messy! (08/06/2008)
My recipe for sloppy joes is really easy, 1 pound lean ground beef, 1/2 cup finely chopped sweet onion, 1/4 teaspoon celery seed, 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, ground pepper to taste and 1 cup regular ketchup. Brown ground beef and drain, cook meat and onion together until onion is soft, add celery seed, pepper and cook 2 min. add sauce and ketchup heat through and serve on toasted sesame buns with lettuce and cheese (optional) enjoy!

Rachel Ray has a great recipe for sloppy joe....
By Tracy In NH
Charlotte's Sloppy Joes
Cook and drain ground beef (I use regular ground beef, drain and rinse very well, this will make it as lean as the 93% lean beef), stir in ketchup, sugar (or splenda), mustard, and garlic salt/powder. Simmer on low for 10 - 15 minutes.
This can be made ahead and froze. It can also be kept warm on low in a crockpot.
Source: This is my mother in law Charlotte's recipe. I NEVER buy store bought sauce anymore. This is easy and tasty!
I am a big proponent of easy cooking. So, I love Womans' Day"3 ingredient meals". The one I love the most is this one for Sloppy Joes, but I love it most for goulash.
A very easy quick tasty recipe is
That is it! It was always my kids favorite. When I would make another one, they were quick to tell me it didn't taste right. Who was I to argue with success?
You can always use BBQ sauce to replace the catsup for another very good taste.
This is how we do it:
Cook together the Hamburger and Onion until done. Add a about a half cup or so of cracker crumbs to absorb the grease. Add a small can of tomato sauce and small amount of Liquid Smoke and serve. (08/08/2008)
Here is one I got from Thriftyfun some time ago. We love this.
TANGY SLOPPY JOES
In a large skillet, cook the beef, celery, onion and green pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink and vegetables are tender; drain. Stir in the ketchup, chili sauce, sugars, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes. serve on buns. Yield: 6 servings
Tip: Try the sloppy joes filling on baked potatoes or over pasta for a change of pace.
Recipe from Eat Well

Let's make it easy!
Brown 1 lb. hamburger and 1 finely chopped onion, tilt pan and take out extra grease with a turkey baster. Then add 1/3 cup bbq sauce, 2/3 cup catsup (I use whatever is on sale) and 1 or 2 tsp. of brown sugar, to your taste.
Turn way down low and let simmer at least a 1/2 hour, stirring every 10 min.
Thats it! We like ours thick not soupy (add a little v8 or shake up the last of catsup bottle with water to thin if necessary.)
I have also been known to sneakily grate in zucchini or carrot for extra veggie boost.
I usually double or triple the recipe then freeze. (08/08/2008)
We have 4 granddaughters living with us so our recipe is really easy to accommodate the various tastebuds. To 1 1/2 lb browned and drained ground beef, I add 8 oz can tomato sauce, 1 tsp onion powder or less, dash of salt and pepper and a little water. Let it simmer to incorporate the seasonings and evaporate the water and then serve. The girls like to add a slice of cheese to their sandwiches to keep the meat juices from soaking through the buns.

I cook for about 100 people on our monthly church sings. We serve food after the singing is over ,and they have always said it was good. I use 6 pounds of hamburger, any kind, also deer burger. I brown it with an onion, then after its done, I add 2 pkgs. of mild taco seasoning, stir, then add 4 cans of cheap tomato soup just as is. Don't add water.
After it cooks enough to thicken just add ketchup to taste and a little bit of brown sugar to taste. Then simmer till you like the taste, also if still too thick, you can add water. All that's left over, freeze into containers that can be used to reheat in microwave. It lasts for quite awhile. (08/30/2008)
