- 1 pound of lean ground beef
- 1/2 cup of diced onion
- 1/3 cup of ketchup
- 1/4 cup of barbecue sauce
- 1 tablespoon of dark brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
Place ground beef and diced onion into a large pan.
Season ground beef and diced onion with black pepper.
Brown ground beef and onion on medium heat, should take about 5-7 minutes.
Drain the excess fat using a strainer and place ground beef and onions back into the pan.
Stir in remaining ingredients and simmer covered for about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Once the sloppy joes are at a consistency that you like, serve and enjoy! If they end up too sloppy, simmer the sloppy joes uncovered for a few minutes.
