Manwich Recipe?

Cricket mentioned making a Manwich. Is this a man size sandwich? I do enjoy Thrifty Fun. It helps to show that we sometimes do things differently, but basically we are the same the world over.


Kind regards,

Manwich is a sloppy joe, made with a canned seasoning sauce that you add to the crumbled up, browned hamburger. I don't know if it is available in Australia or not. There are other brands here in the state there is DelMonte and then there are the lower priced store brands. You probably have something similar there, you just have to figure out what it is called.

My thanks to all who replied to my queries about hamburger presses and Manwich recipe. We do something similar with mince on toast, will try the buns instead of slices of bread next time. Kind regards, Jean Maffra Gippsland Australia.

I have searched for a "manwich" recipe. My dd loves this, and the other homemade sloppy joes I have tried, she didn't care for. Thank you in advance for all suggestions for these.

I make an easy and delicious sloppy joe by browning ground beef, season with salt and pepper. Add your favorite barbeque sauce. Place sauce on hamburger buns. Serve hot and sloppy! (05/17/2006)

The way I make my sloppy joes (manwich) is: I brown my ground beef, sauteed onions and green peppers in very little water and BBQ sauce, add a little mustard, A1, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, celery seed, and whatever else I think might taste good and add it to the peppers and onions, your BBQ sauce and viola! I have been fixing it like this for years. I think it tastes better than anything you get from a can. Experiment with the spices. They are added according to your taste. I think you'll like it! Good luck and enjoy. (05/17/2006)

Manwich Recipe

Homemade Manwich

  • 1 pound lean ground beef or turkey
  • 1/2 cup catsup
  • 1/2 cup steak sauce
  • 1/3 cup barbecue sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons hot mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 6 hamburger buns

Brown the meat in a non-stick pan or with a little oil in a regular pan. Add remaining ingredients, except the buns. Cook for about 15 minutes, to blend flavors and to reduce the liquids.

Serve over the buns, for open face barbecue, or spread a little on one half, sprinkle with pickle relish, and eat like an ordinary sandwich.


Manwich Recipe

Sloppy Joes

  • 3 pounds hamburger
  • 3 cups ketchup
  • 2/3 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix

Brown the hamburger, drain, add remaining ingredients, mix completely, heat through, and serve on buns. I got this off a newsletter on internet and made it last week. Very good. The canned Manwich gives me heartburn. If you like, try adding chopped green peppers. (05/17/2006)

None of these recipes sound like a match to Manwich which has red and green peppers in it! I came up with what I think is a close match

  • 1 1/2 - 2 lbs lean ground beef
  • 2 small cans tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup KC Masterpiece Barbeque Sauce
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1/2 of a large green pepper, diced (or put some red and some green)
  • a few sprinkles of Accent
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar

Brown meat with onion and pepper in large skillet. Drain fat. Add rest of ingredients and simmer for about 20 minutes.

Note: could also add a dash of vinegar. (05/18/2006)

Manwich Recipe

Here's a recipe from a cookbook I've had for almost 25 years, it was originally used as a filling for Sloppy Joe turnovers:

  • 1 Tbl. vegetable oil
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green pepper
  • 1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. dry mustard
  • 2 Tbl. honey
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper

Heat oil in a medium saucepan. Add meat. Cook over medium heat until no longer pink, breaking up with a spoon. Add onion and green pepper. Cook 3 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients. Simmer 5 minutes. Makes enough for 6 to 8 Sloppy Joes. (05/18/2006)
