I thawed two pounds of ground beef. I made one pound into spaghetti sauce and the other pound into sloppy joes. That's what I'll be eating for the next few days.

Have not had sloppy joes in years. That may be my meal plan for a couple of days. What is the best stuff to get, never made them before.

hang on Fred! my wife has a recipe for making you own sloppy joe mix rather than using the canned stuff.

1 lb. ground beef, onion chopped up, ketchup and little bit of mustard, chopped bell pepper, worchester sauce. brown the meat first before adding the other ingrediants she said.

i ike to toast the bun and add some fresh sliced onion on mine when i make a sandwich.

Thanks, am on a low sodium diet, so the mixed stuff is usually horrible for me. Not a huge fan of the bell peppers and onions, but may try slicing them very fine and cooking them down in another pan while the meat browns. Add a little Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce, and of course, being from Louisiana, some spices...

I am slowly trying to eat more green stuff, this will be a good way to try adding the bell peppers.

My thanks to your wife, will let you know how they turn out.

that's the beauty of her recipe. she adapted one she got from her sister and one she got from one of our members, Zombiegirl, to make hers.

i forgot about, the brown sugar and garlic powder though. sorry.

adapt it to your tastes. that's what the wife did.

Brown the meat. I add chopped onions, celery and sweet peppers but you don't have to. Drain the meat. Then I squirt in enough ketchup to however 'sloppy' you want them to be. I put in just enough to coat the meat but not make them too juicy. Then a teaspoon or so of lemon juice, about the same of vinegar. Then add brown sugar to taste. Let it simmer while stirring for about 10 minutes. Simply and incredibly delicious. Tweak it to your personal tastes.

Forgot to get the onion and bell pepper... Sloppy Joes need some onion and bell pepper added, I did it without them, not bad, but not very good.

Will try this again.
