Tonight in the Wolf Lover household we had Sloppy Joes for dinner. Sloppy Joes are one of our favorites, and I make them about every other week. They are quick and tasty and not made from a can. I used to make them all the time for my staff at my old job, and they went over well with everyone, except for those that didn't eat meat... :)
I thought I'd share the recipe, as it seems that a lot of people just use Manwich anymore, and I don't think you have to do that. It take just about as long to use Manwich as it does my simple recipe.
Sandwich or Hamburger Buns
Cook meat until done. Drain off fat. Add ketchup, brown sugar and worchester sauce to taste.
Ok, so I know I don't give any indication of how much you should put in to the recipe...but I don't honestly know. I do it until it tastes right. I can tell you this much though...you put in A LOT of ketchup and about 3 tablespoons or so of brown sugar. I usually count to 10 while pouring in the worchester sauce. This is all for 1 pound of meat. The important thing to note is that you need enough ketchup to cover the meat. Then add some worchester sauce to thin it up and make it a bit more runny and the brown sugar to add some sweetness. I'm sure you could probably add veggies too if you would like (I don't). I used to make this for 20 people to have several servings and imagine what it was like to cut back the first time and get the mixture right.
Good luck, hope you find the perfect taste, and sorry if you don't. You won't know unless you try though!
