Sloppy Joes

I actually can't remember the last time I had a sloppy joe, and I very rarely crave them.  I kept seeing commercials for sloppy joes while I was pregnant and they really looked appealing to me, I never got a sloppy joe while I was pregnant and I've continued to crave them.  It seemed like as more time went by I kept seeing more and more things pertaining to sloppy joes; commercials and cooking shows, and they were calling out to me to make some.  I felt like a kid when I was eating this, it's just something about certain things that just bring out the kid in you.  This was so good, and it really didn't take that long to put together so it's great for a weeknight meal.  All of the flavors came together and it really tasted great, and another plus is that you really do get quite a bit of vegetables in this one dish.  We really enjoyed these and I'm sure this recipe will become quite a popular one in our rotation of meals. 


Sloppy Joes


2 Pounds ground beef

1/2 Small onion, chopped

2 Ribs celery with leaves, chopped

3 Tbsp shredded carrots

1 Can stewed tomatoes

1/4 Cup ketchup

2 Tbsp brown sugar

1 Tbsp white vinegar

1/2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 Tbsp worcestershire sauce

1 Tbsp steak sauce (I used A1)

1/2 Tsp garlic salt

1/4 Tsp spicey mustard

1/4 Tsp paprika

1 Tbsp hot sauce


Preheat a large skillet over medium heat and add beef, onion, celery and carrots.  Cook until meat is cooked through and the vegetables are tender and then drain.

Return meat and vegetables to the skillet and then add the rest of the ingredients.  Mix together and then simmer for 30 minutes. 

Serve hot on a toasted bun.
