On these rainy days, I’m always trying to figure out what would be good for dinner. My family has always loved comfort food on those days. This recipe not only fits the bill but also makes the kitchen smell so good! Enjoy!


Real Sloppy Joes

  • Canola oil, 1 Tablespoon

  • Yellow onion, 1 diced

  • Celery, 1 stalk diced

  • Green bell pepper, 1/4 cup finely diced

  • Ground beef, 1 1/2 pounds

  • Tomato sauce, 1 cup

  • Chili sauce, 1/2 cup

  • Worcestershire sauce, 1 Tablespoon

  • Dijon mustard, 1 Tablespoon

  • Cider vinegar, 1 Tablespoon

  • Light brown sugar, 1 Tablespoon firmly packed

  • Kosher salt, 1 teaspoon

  • Freshly ground black pepper, 1/4 teaspoon

  • Sandwich buns, 6 split

In a large flying pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion, celery and bell pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion softens, about 5 minutes. Add the beef and increase the heat to medium high. Cook, stirring and breaking up the beef with a wooden spoon, until it’s no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Stir in 1/4 cup of water, the tomato sauce, chili sauce, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring frequently, for about 20 minutes to blend the flavors. Toast the buns place the bottom half of the buns, cut side up, on warmed individual plates and top with the beef mixture, dividing it equally. Cover with bun tops and serve.
