  • ISO: Recipe for Sloppy Joes (using ketchup and mustard)
    I know there are MANY sloppy joe recipes on the BB, but most of them I came across used ketchup and ground mustard (you know, like a spice), not mustard (like you would put on a hotdog). Several years ago, one of my boyfriend's father made the best sloppy joes (which I call wimpies), but I never did get the recipe other than being told the secret was using ketchup and mustard.

    Anyone have a recipe like this?

    Thank you! Have a wonderful day!

    Karen, I just brown the ground beef, drain the fat off, then add ketchup and mustard until it "looks right". LOL!!! Sorry - I've never measured.

    Thank you. I will have to try this one and I will use Jane's theory to just add ketchup and mustard till it comes our right.

    Have a great day!

    When I was a SAHM my DS and I would make this for lunch when there was just a small amount of ground beef left over from something else. He called them JR's (for Jane and Rick's). A few months ago my DIL said Rick made the best sloppy joes last night and he didn't even use a mix or Manwich. Rick said that's another recipe you have to thank my mom for. LOL!!

    I sure do. This is how I always make my sloppy joes and I always get thumbs up even from the grandkids!
    1 lb ground beef (I use ground round)
    1 onion chopped fine
    1 cup ketchup
    1 Tsp mustard
    1 Tsp vinegar (I use white)
    Brown meat and onion, drain off grease. Add other ingredients and heat through.
    I like this over any other recipes I have tried. Give it a try and let me know how you like it.

    When you say "prepared mustard" do you mean brown or yellow?

    I make this version in my crockpot, but I'm sure you can just do it on the stovetop.

    2 lbs ground beef
    1/2 cup ketchup
    1/2 cup yellow mustard
    1/4 cup brown sugar

    Brown beef in a small amount of vegetable oil. Drain. Mix beef and remaining ingredients in crockpot and cook on low for 4-6 hours.

    Prepared mustard is regular mustard you have in the refrigerator. You can use whatever brand you have. The spicy the more flair to your sloppy jo's. The plain yellow is fine too. What ever you have on hand.

    We just had artistathand's recipe (1st one posted above) for supper. I had to substitute 1 T of onion powder for the onion (I can't think of another time when I've not had an onion in the house) and used onion salt, too. I did use deer meat(friend's DH is a hunter - it doesn't have a really game-y flavour this season) anyway it was wonderful! Definitely will use again I have made the super sloppy joes before and enjoyed those but this recipe is even quicker to get together. Thanks artistathand.
