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.  🙂
