Easy Sloppy Joes

This is a recipe I formulated to be similar to the sloppy joes that my grandmother has made for our family. It also is one that my husband asks me to make at least once a month and can be eaten a few different ways. While you can eat this on a gluten free roll or bread, my favorite way to eat this is over brown rice. I also sometimes serve this with veggies and oven baked fries and eat it on its own. Here is the recipe:

Easy Sloppy Joes – Serves 4 to 6

Ingredients:

  • 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

Directions:

  1. Place ground beef and diced onion into a large pan.
  2. Season ground beef and diced onion with black pepper.
  3. Brown ground beef and onion on medium heat, should take about 5-7 minutes.
  4. Drain the excess fat using a strainer and place ground beef and onions back into the pan.
  5. Stir in remaining ingredients and simmer covered for about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. 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.
