Sloppy Joe’s

Who doesn’t love Sloppy Joe’s? Squatch, that’s who. Manwich is a nope, even the chunky version, which I prefer. These homemade Joe’s are similar to the chunky Manwich.


  • 1 Pound Ground Beef
  • 1 Large Onion, Minced
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 Green Pepper, Minced
  • 2 Tablespoons Mustard (French’s or similar)
  • 1 Tablespoon Vinegar
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 3/4 Cup Ketchup
  1. Brown the ground beef, and remove the grease
  2. Add all other ingredients, stirring well to thoroughly mix
  3. Cover, and simmer for about 30 minutes
  4. Serve on buns with potato chips on the side

This will give you a good amount of Joe’s, or Disorderly Joeseph’s, as I like to call them. I do find this recipe to be a bit heavy on the mustard, so I tend to add a few extra squirts of ketchup when making just for myself. If you are doubling the recipe, just the one pepper will do, and you can get away with 3 Tablespoons of Mustard instead of 4. Growing up, we had Sloppy Joe’s once or twice a month, and always served them with ruffled or ridged chips. I still love them, and eat them the same way – top of the bun on the bottom, to keep the Joes from soaking through the thin bottom bun, cut into quarters. Soooo good!!!
