Simple Sloppy Joes

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 3 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation Instructions

Brown the beef—In a skillet over medium heat, cook beef, onion, and green pepper until beef is browned and onions are tender. |
  1. Make the sloppy joes—Stir in ketchup, mustard, garlic, brown sugar, and garlic powder until evenly distributed. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve on your favorite hamburger buns.

Tips

Get Toasty

Whether you choose classic sesame seed or fluffy brioche, toasting buns prevents sloppy joes from becoming soggy joes.
