Sloppy Joes

I'm not sure where I originally found this recipe... maybe the Better Homes & Gardens cookbook, or the Betty Crocker cookbook? In any case, around here we like it better than sloppy joes made from Manwich sauce -- plus it's a whole lot cheaper!

Sloppy Joes
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 tbsp. yellow mustard
  • 1 tsp. soy sauce
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tbsp. dried onion
Cook beef in a skillet over medium heat 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally until beef is browned.
Stir in remaining ingredients. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve on buns or over cooked noodles.

Sloppy Janes/vegetarian variation: Rehydrate 1 cup TVP with 7/8 cup boiling water or vegetable broth. Let stand until liquid is absorbed. Substitute the TVP for the browned ground beef.
