Sloppy Joe Sauce

Sometimes on a busy night, I will just throw together something that will just take minutes to prepare. I found this recipe in a Taste of Home cookbook years ago, when no matter what sloppy joe sauce we tried, none of them just tasted quite right.

I have used this for years, and all the ingredients are usually readily available in most households.

Sloppy Joe Sauce

1 pound ground beef or turkey

1 cup ketchup

1/4 cup water

2 TBSP brown sugar

2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

2 tsp mustard

2 tsp garlic powder

2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp salt

4 hamburger buns

1 stalk chopped celery

1/2 small onion diced

All you do is measure out the sauce ingredients. Dice your onion and celery.


Combine the sauce ingredients.


  Brown your ground meat with the onion and celery until no longer pink. Add the sauce and simmer for 15 minutes.

And enjoy.

 Super easy and very tasty.

Great for a busy night when dinner is the last thing you want to spend alot of time on.
