Sloppy Joe's

This one came from RecipeZaar, honestly it is the best! I have only modified it slightly.

Here is the original.

My version:

1 lb Ground Beef
2 stalks Celery, grated
1 (med.) Carrot
1 (med.) Bell Pepper, diced or grated your choice
1 small Onion, diced
1 (8 ounce) can Tomato Sauce
1/4 cup Ketchup
1/4 cup BBQ Sauce (your favorite, we use Cattleman's)
1 tablespoon firmly packed Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Dry Mustard
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon Worchestershire Sauce
1 tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar

In a large skillet, brown ground beef, celery and onion, drain.

Stir in remaining ingredients, simmer covered, 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
If Joes appear too'loose', leave cover off and let moisture evaporate.

And serve, it couldn't be easier. Best of all it is just as good as a freezer meal!


  1. I posted Sloppy Joe's today, too! You know what they say about great minds! Although yours look much better - I am bookmarking this recipe to try soon!

  2. My boys love them and I always forget to make it! Thanks for the reminder! Sometimes I end up making the same things over and over again! :-)
