Bachelor Sloppy Joes

Rated as 3.57 out of 5 Stars

"This my personal sloppy joe recipe. I have tweaked it to have all my favorite ingredients. Not one of them overpowers the other. I hope you like it, as it makes a great lunch or game-day sandwich for the family. I generally serve it on a better quality hamburger bun with Kettle® potato chips."

  • Ready In

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef to the skillet and break into smaller bits with a spatula as it cooks; cook until browned on one side, 3 to 5 minutes. Turn beef and add onion, bell pepper, and celery. Put a cover on the skillet and continue to cook until beef is completely browned and crumbly, 2 to 5 minutes more.
  2. Stir vinegar, mustard, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic powder into the beef mixture; season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low and simmer mixture, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are completely tender, about 15 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can make 4 large or 6 medium-sized sandwiches from this recipe.
  • This recipe also freezes well. I use a vacuum-sealed bag for individual portions when I want a fast meal.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I added about a cup of ketchup, it made this recipe the right amount of sloppy

This is terrible. Not enough sauce for the amount of meat. The sauce is not even a little sloppy joe-like. Added bbq, salsa, and cholula.

Love it! I double the recipe and I've made it a bunch of times and always get compliments. I do add a can of tomato paste and some water to make it a bit more juicy. I make sure I drain and ...
