I love this recipe. I've grown up eating these homemade Sloppy Joes. They taste much better than any canned version! It's so quick and easy and I bet you already have the ingredients on hand.
2 lbs ground beef
1 bottle ketchup **
1 small onion, chopped (optional depending on taste. I never use it)
2 tablespoons mustard
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
dash of salt & pepper
**the old recipe does not list a bottle size. I use whatever I have on hand. Eyeball it until it looks good and saucy. You may not use a whole bottle**
DIRECTIONS: Cook the ground beef in a skillet. Drain grease and wipe out skillet. Return meat to the skillet and add the remaining ingredients. Mix well and let simmer for 15-20 minutes. Serve on buns.
This recipe can easily be cut in half for a smaller amount. Leftovers are great and it also freezes well.
