Homemade sloppy Joes

Want to serve your kids a better Sloppy Joe?  Check out this recipe for making your own Sloppy Joe's at home. 

My kids like their Joe's plain I like mine with a slice of Cheese and a side salad. This is a great recipe to use with your meal planning.


1 tablespoon oil
1 small onion, chopped (you can substitute with 1 tbs onion powder)
1 pound ground beef (you can substitute with ground chicken)
1 1/2 cups Ketchup
1 tablespoon  Worcestershire Sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar  (make your own with 1 tbs molasses and 1 cup of sugar = 1 cup brown sugar)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
8 sandwich buns


Heat oil in a large frying pan set over medium-high heat. Saute onions for 5 minutes. Add beef to the pan. Cook, stirring until browned, about 5 to 10 minutes. Drain off fat. Stir in ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, salt and pepper. Simmer over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until slightly thickened. Serve on sandwich buns.

You can serve it with additional toppings such as  lettuce,  tomato, grated cheese, sour cream or ranch salad dressing.
