This video has the step by step instructions to make your very own sloppy Joes. I like to make my own sloppy joes (slushburgers). I like this recipe for it freezes well. Leftovers can be made into several quick and easy meals for a later date. View the full recipe here: Homemade Sloppy Joes
I love it when my best friend comes over to make sloppy joes. I like the kind that uses tomato paste and a seasoning packet, but I love hers! :)
Total Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 8 sloppy joes
Quick, easy, and good.
Put a small amount of water in bottom of frying pan. Add hamburger and cook until brown. Drain grease.
Add minced onions, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 1/3 cup water, and enough ketchup to make a really sloppy sauce. Simmer for about 10 minutes
Serve on a hamburger bun or on top of a baked potato.

I use just chili sauce in my sloppy joes. A couple of bottles of chili sauce (Note: make sure it is chili sauce NOT cocktail sauce). It is sweet and cheaper than ketchup and makes the sloppy joes better than Manwich. My aunt taught me this when I was a child.
I have used your recipe several times to make Sloppy Joes. I LOVE it! I think I could eat this every day. I go by the recipe and it is wonderful. Thank You for sharing with us.
This is one of the fastest and best-tasting lunch specials you can make. Most children love any kind of SloppyJoe Sandwich, but this one has some added flavor and nutrition.
Being single and needing to watch what I make and save money, I make my own sloppy joes (slushburgers).
Cook meat and onion. Drain well. In a large pot combine all ingredients. Stir and simmer for 1 hour.
I usually double the recipe. Brown and drain ground beef. Add pepper, onion, and garlic and saute for approximately 5 minutes. Add other ingredients and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Brown meat. Chop onion and add to meat; cook. Add remaining ingredients. Simmer about 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Toast buns. Spoon meat into buns.
A family favorite and a great stand-by when you need a quick meal!
These go over big at our house! Very kid-friendly as well.
Season venison steaks and put in crockpot, on slow, overnight, with small amount of water. Let cool, then tear apart with a fork. Return meat to crockpot, add can of sloppy joe sauce and simmer.
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.
This is a fun, kid-friendly recipe.
Very easy and different Sloppy Joe recipe.
Brown hamburger and onion. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 15-30 minutes.
In a Dutch oven or large kettle, cook the ground beef and green pepper over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste and seasonings. Bring meat mixture to a boil.
Heat oven to 400 degrees F in small bowl, stir together bisquick mix, 1/2 of shredded cheese, water and egg white. Set aside. Cook ground beef, drain. Add tomato sauce, ketchup and salt. Heat over med heat, stirring occasionally.
These are GREAT!
These 2 recipes are from my husband's Aunt Norma and her friend, Jo. Norma's recipe is #2 and for a crowd, which is what you have at our family gatherings! Both are GREAT cooks and these are yummy recipes!
Mix all together and simmer for a while or can put in crock pot and warm slowly.

I'm looking for an easy homemade Sloppy Joe sauce recipe. Does any one have a secret to making delicious Sloppy Joes? I thought this would help cut back on my grocery shop bill if I make more homemade and then I could freeze for later use.
Thank you for any help.

Place ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook until evenly browned, stirring to crumble. I like to use a potato masher to even out the lumps. Add onion and celery, cover the pan, and cook until tender and transparent, about 5 minutes. Drain off any grease.
Stir the tomato soup (undiluted), ketchup, vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce into the beef mixture. Season with salt and garlic powder. Heat to a simmer over low heat, and cook until thoroughly heated, stirring frequently to prevent it from burning on the bottom.
Spoon the hot beef mixture onto buns, which may be toasted first, and serve. I serve it as open face sandwich,(just 1 slice on bread or 1/2 bun). Good luck. (12/08/2009)
I just brown a pound of ground beef with an onion chopped up in it, then use a packet of the Walmart brand dried sloppy joe mix. The mix is very cheap, something like 49 cents. I think it directs you to also add a can of tomato paste. I actually like it better than the pricy canned Manwich stuff.
The other day I was looking for a quick lunch. I browned a little bit of ground beef with some dried onion mixed in, drained the grease, and added some ketchup and a little bit of brown sugar. It tasted pretty much like sloppy joes, too. (12/09/2009)
This one is called Taco Joes, and it couldn't be simpler! Brown 1 lb ground beef, add 1 can of condensed tomato soup (like Campbell's, straight from the can), and 1 cup of your favorite salsa. Simmer to blend the flavors. We use it as an open-face sandwich, because our salsa is rather juicy. A slice of cheese on the bun before adding the Taco Joe is delicious, also. Bon appetite!

Crock Pot Sloppy Joe
I posted two recipes but I tell you what I do. I buy two cans of manwich or the store brand whichever is cheaper that month. I use about 2 to 3 lbs of hamburger. I brown the hamburger with some garlic, oregano, cumin and chili powder, drain it well then dump into my crockpot. I pour in the cans of manwich, a whole diced onion and a whole diced green onion and let her go for a couple of hours. Then I put what we don't eat into freezer containers and the guys take out what they want when they want it. Oh yeah and I also add about half to 2/3 of a bar of pepper jack cheese to ours, but you may not like it cheesy. We love it. I don't like mine on buns but it's fantastic over fritos. (12/09/2009)
Rachelle I thought you might like to know, almost any recipe for Sloppy Joe's or Spaghetti sauce can be stretched almost double by adding grated carrots and or cabbage! Cook til the vegetables you've added are totally soft usually about 20 minutes or so depending on how finely shredded or grated they are. I was a home childcare provider for 20 years and I always used to do this for the kids and they loved it! I even had a couple of their moms ask me for my recipe cause their kids wouldn't eat sloppy joes for them! Of course we never told the kids what my secret ingredient was! I can identify with the people on those TV commercials where the mom keeps interrupting dad when he tries to read the label that says the ravioli has a full serving of vegetables! It really does work though! (12/09/2009)
My daughter found this one on allrecipes.com and it's delish!
Someone told me the other day to use the orangish colored Western Salad Dressing for sauce. I fried some hamburger the other day for something and tried it and it was very good and that was without your onion and green pepper. (12/12/2009)
This is a kid friendly recipe
This was my mother's old stand-by recipe for Sloppy Joes. The recipe is probably well over 50 years old.
Steam ground beef, onion, salt and pepper with cold water for 40 minutes. Pour off liquid. Add 1 can of chicken gumbo soup. Simmer 1/2 hour.
I am looking for a recipe for sloppy joes. I had one and lost it in when we moved.
This Sloppy Joe mix I made when my kids were little and I made it a lot! It makes a lot and is great for family get togethers or large families. The nice thing is that it is really simple quick and easy on the stomach!
Brown ground beef and onion. Stir in remaining ingredients. Continue browning and stirring until well blended and the meat is cooked through.
