Yummy Sloppy Joes

The last time I started blogging (and then quit), I intended to add some recipes to my blog.  I have no intentions of becoming a food blogger.  I do, however, like to have a link for the recipes I use regularly.  I use a google spreadsheet for my meal plan, and it’s so convenient to have all the recipes hyperlinked in one place when I go to start a meal.  No sorting through pin boards.  No searching favorites.

Several years ago, I was a part of an online message board.  There was a woman on the board who shared this recipe.  I cannot remember her name, so if by some chance you know who it was, please tell me.  I would love to credit her for this delicious recipe.


Sloppy Joes
1 pound ground round or extra lean ground beef
3/4 cup minced fresh onion
1/2 cup diced green bell pepper
 1/4 cup diced celery
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tbsp. tomato paste
1 tbsp. vinegar
1/4 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
6 hamburger buns
1.  Combine the first 5 ingredients in a large nonstick skillet. Cook over medium heat until beef is browned, stirring to crumble.  Drain well.  Wipe drippings from skillet with a paper towel.
2.  Combine beef mixture, water, and next 7 ingredients (water through pepper) in skillet, and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat, and simmer mixture 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.


Again, obviously not a food blogger.  🙂
