how can i make good sloppy joes??? yes i know i need meat…but what else?March 6, 2011 9:04 pm at 9:04 pm #747210smartcookieMember
Skip it. Any other food you cn think of tastes better than that.March 6, 2011 10:09 pm at 10:09 pm #747211always hereParticipant
the easiest recipe:
1 med. onion
1 lb. hamburger
1/2 c. ketchup
1/4 c. mustard
8 oz. can tomato sauce
Chop 1 medium onion, crumble 1 pound hamburger into heated fry pan. Add salt to taste. Cook until meat is brown. Stir in 1/2 cup ketchup and 1/4 cup mustard or 1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce. Cook slowly until warm. Serve on bun or bread. Makes 6 servings.
personally, I’d decrease the mustard.
I remember they sell a can of ‘sloppy joes’ that you just mix in with hamburger… that’s reallyy the easiest; sorry can’t remember the brand.March 6, 2011 10:22 pm at 10:22 pm #747212ImaofthreeParticipant
I just brown the meat in a pan and add the sloppy joe sauce from a can, maybe Hunts makes it? Then spoon some over a hamburger bun.March 6, 2011 10:55 pm at 10:55 pm #747213Feif UnParticipant
I think that Manwich sauce is the best. Just take ground beef, brown it a bit (make sure to keep stirring and breaking it up), and when it’s about a third of the way cooked, pour in the Manwich sauce. Let it simmer for a while, and voila! it’s done! Whether you want it on a sandwich, plain, or over rice or some other thing is up to you.March 6, 2011 10:55 pm at 10:55 pm #747214
If I didn’t want it I wouldn’t have asked. But obviously I want it!March 6, 2011 11:26 pm at 11:26 pm #747215
Thanks! I was trying to avoid purchasing the can! Lol. But thank you all!March 6, 2011 11:27 pm at 11:27 pm #747216always hereParticipant
yes, Manwich– that’s it!March 6, 2011 11:44 pm at 11:44 pm #747217deiyezoogerMember

Soda tastes good in sloppy joe.March 7, 2011 1:42 am at 1:42 am #747219🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant
Love manwich but always here’s recipe is similar to mine. Just minus the mustard and I sprinkle garlic and about a tablespoon of brown sugar on too. You don’t really need the brown sugar with ketchup but I hate to play with a recipe my kids will eat.
And forget the soda, that’s a roast or a turkey.March 7, 2011 3:26 am at 3:26 am #747220rebdonielMember
A nicer recipe is for a Cuban dish called picadillo, similar to a sloppy joe, but you can eitehr put it on rolls or eat it with rice.
Saute your chopped meat and drain.
Saute chopped red onion and garlic in olive oil, along with some cumin, oregano, and chopped green bell pepper.
Add an 8 oz. can of tomato sauce, as well as about half a jar of Spanish green olives with pimientos, along with some of their brine, some pepper, a little salt, and some raisins and wine.
Bring to the boil and reduce to a simmer, and let cook for 30 minutes over medium heat.
Serve on rolls, or with white rice and black beans, and some fried plantains.March 7, 2011 3:57 am at 3:57 am #747221
rebdoniel-once u said cumin that recipe is out! no offense but ich!March 7, 2011 7:28 pm at 7:28 pm #747222rebdonielMember
Leave cumin out if you don’t like it. Cooking is an art, not a science. You don’t need to follow recipes exactly- use what flavors and seasonings appeal to you. If you don’t like cumin, you don’t need to put it in. It’ll still be delicious without cumin.
