Chili Sauce Gives Homemade Sloppy Joe’s a Tangy Kick

Sloppy Joe
Somewhere in there lies a hamburger bun. (Ryan O’Bryan / 106-1 KISS-FM)

Move over Manwich, there’s a new Joe in town.

As I’ve said in a previous blog, my wife and I prefer to make meals without the use of some prepackaged “box dinner” whenever possible. While Manwich is a fine product and a good go to when in a pinch, we prefer to whip up our sloppy joe’s from scratch. The mix of chili sauce and brown sugar give the sauce a delicious, tangy-sweetness that makes it one of my favorite meals. Plus, it’s ready to go in about 20 minutes.

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 – 12 oz. bottle of chili sauce (usually found in the same aisle as ketchup)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 to 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Hamburger buns or regular bread

Now that you have the ingredients, here’s what to do with them:

  • Brown ground beef with onion and green pepper until the meat is no longer pink and the veggies are tender. Drain, and return to the skillet.
  • Mix chili sauce water, sugar, Worcestershire, salt, and pepper in a bowl and pour over ground beef mixture.
  • Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Serve on top of hamburger buns or bread and dig in!
