I told you in my menu plan on Monday that I was messing with a Sloppy Joe recipe that was for 8 dozen, and that if it worked and was good, I'd pass it along.

Let's just say I'm passing it along.

Sloppy Joes
tweaked from a Taste of Home recipe

3 lbs. lean ground beef
1 medium onion, finely chopped
3 cups ketchup (or catsup, if you prefer)
2 T Worcestershire sauce
2 T packed brown sugar
1 1/2 T mustard
2 tsp white vinegar
1/2 tsp chili powder

Brown ground beef, drain off excess grease if you need to, and when it's almost done browning add the chopped up onion.

When meat is browned add the remaining ingredients. Mix well. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for one hour, stirring regularly.

Serve on hamburger or deli buns.


The guys in the family ate them with chips. The girls in the family had cucumbers with ranch dressing. In his defense, I think Hubby had both.

This should make about 16 Sloppy Joes. When I tweaked the recipe that was my plan, but since we haven't completely eaten it all up, I can't tell you for sure. It does appear we're on target.

I use almost the same recipe and it's really good so I can imagine these are too!
