Sloppy Joes

I’m not one to typically get excited about Sloppy Joes. The name pretty much ruins it for me and Manwich is not exactly awesome.


Our friend, Martha Stewart, has a Sloppy Joe recipe that’s actually worth making! I wanted to share because we had it for dinner last night and it was YUM. Also, it was super easy to make…I think it took 20 minutes?


1 tbsp canola oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1/2 green bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed and finely chopped
1 celery stalk, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves minced
coarse salt and fresh ground pepper
1 lb ground beef
1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
4 hamburger buns, split and toasted

In a large skillet, heat the oil and onion, pepper, celery and garlic, season with salt and pepper

Cook 5-7 min until veggies are soft

Add ground beef and cook 6-8 min until no longer pink

Add tomato sauce, ketchup and worcestershire sauce into beef mixture…simmer until thickened 6-8 minutes…season with more salt and pepper as desired
