Sloppy Joes


I am in the middle of writing a post about this past weekend, but here’s a little something for you in the meantime.


dSometimes it’s nice to have an easy recipe to go to when things are hectic or you just don’t feel like doing a whole lot. It’s not uncommon to make sloppy joe’s from a can, but this recipe is pretty simple. It’s a great one to make a double or triple batch and put the rest in the freezer for a quick meal.

2 lbs ground beef
½ tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper
1 tbsp dried parsley flakes
1 tbsp olive oil

1 onion, chopped
½ green pepper, finely chopped
1 tsp garlic powder
2 cups ketchup
2 tsp prepared mustard (plain)
4 tsp brown sugar

·      In a large skillet, heat the oil on medium high heat.
·      Brown the ground beef and the seasonings (garlic powder to the parley flakes).
·      Drain the grease.
·      Sautée the onion and green pepper until tender.
·      Add the seasoned ground beef, garlic powder, ketchup, mustard, and brown sugar.
·      Simmer for 15-20 minutes.
·      Serve on hamburger buns.
