Sloppy joes my Mom made for the Women's Club suppers when I was in grade school. This recipe can be made ahead and reheated, it can also be doubled. Serve on crusty buns and garnish with sliced tomato, lettuce, and dill pickles, if desired.

  • Return skillet to stove top. Stir chili sauce, green bell pepper, and tomato sauce into the beef mixture; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring regularly, until the sauce is thick, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Note:

The leaner the ground beef used, the less fat rendered.
