Sloppy Joes From Scratch


Using canned and pre-done sauces are convenient, but I find the flavor of "from scratch" to be out of this world better in most cases. Not to mention that you are skipping all the preservatives and sometimes high salt content. Nothing could be easier then this Sloppy Joe recipe. Perfect for a weeknight dinner. (Also perfect when you forget to thaw the hamburger all the way!) 

This recipe is definitely KID APPROVED!!!


Brown ground beef. Add a little Onion Powder.

Sloppy Joes-1

Squirt in some Sriracha.

Sloppy Joes-2

A big squirt of Ketchup.

Sloppy Joes-3

A dash of Worcestershire Sauce.

Sloppy Joes-4

Don't forget a squirt of Mustard.

Sloppy Joes-5

Add a little brown sugar for sweetness.

Sloppy Joes-6

And finally, a little Sour Cream to round out all the flavors. (this ingredient is not a normal sloppy joe ingredient... but I find that it is the perfect binding and smoothing ingredient!)

Sloppy Joes-7

Stir and let all the flavors cook into the meat.

Sloppy Joes-8

Serve on your favorite bun! (Our family is a little obsessed with Onion Buns!) Put a slice of cheese on if you like!
