Shadicats’ Easy Sloppy Joe Recipe
1-2 lbs Ground beef
1 tsp salt (add more as needed)
1 tsp pepper
2-3 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce (be careful, too much and you’ll ruin the dish)
1-2 onion(s), diced
1 can of tomato paste
1 cup of tomato sauce (or ketchup or water)
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp oregano (optional, el boyfriendo hates oregano and I have to be sneaky on where I use it.)
1 tsp garlic powder
- Cook ground beef and onions until brown.
- While ground beef is cooking, mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the can of tomato paste and a cup of tomato sauce (or ketchup, or water) and mix.
- Once ground beef is cooked drain before adding the mix; cook for additional 5 minutes.
- Take buns, toast them if you prefer toasted.
