  1. I brown hamburger with celery and onion, little green pepper. Add garlic powder and red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Then drain… add brown sugar and your favorite bbq sauce. Cook down

    Add catsup, mustard, bbq sauce,a few shakesof worchester (??) sauce, minced garlic, brown sugar, onion and garlic powder and some salt. I just toss it all in to taste and it turns out fabulous every time. Make sure to let it simmer for awhile tho. 🙂

  3. I use ground beef with lots of onions add brown sugar, pickle relish and ketchup and sometimes a little bbq sauce too.

  4. I brown 1lb of ground chuck, 1/4 cup water, 1tsp sugar, onions, salt n pepper. Brown an then summer till liquid is gone. Totally awsome.

  5. Google the recipe for Philly cheese sloppy joes. You’ll never eat them any other way. When we make our sloppy joes, I add a can of drained (not rinsed) pork and beans. Makes it go further and tastes so good. Adds the “umami” needed to be complete.

  6. I brown the hamburger meat, drain it, then add a can of tomato soup, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, garlic powder and brown sugar to taste. It’s really good

    My dad used to make the best Sloppy Joes when I was growing up. I’ve continued to make it his way ever since. Hubby, kids, and grandkids all love it.

    Brown hamburger. Drain then return meat to skillet. Add ketsup, mustard, onion and garlic powder. Sometimes I’ll add a tsp of dry mustard for a little extra zing. If you prefer it spicier, add chili sauce. This is quick and easy for a busy day and great for camping. Enjoy ♥️

  8. Brown ground beef, onions, peppers, pun in enough ketchup to coat the meat. A stripe of mustard, and about a small spoonful of brown sugar or to taste. I like a little more mustard in mine. I like when it has a zing to it.

  9. Brown 1 chopped onion, 2 chopped celery stalks, add 3 lbs ground round brown and drain. Add approx 6 tablespoons brown sugar, 6 teaspoons whirstshier sauce, 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, 3 tablespoons of white vinegar. 2 teaspoons dry mustard, 1/2 each chopped red and green pepper. Then mix in 1 32 Oz hunts tomato sauce and slowly add 16 Oz tomato sauce. May not ne whole can. Add as desired thicknes. Cover and simmer a 1 to 2 hours.

  10. Get the sloppy Joe seasoning packet and follow the instructions on it. It’s not as sweet as manwhich and my family likes it better

  11. The one we use at work and the residents love is browned burger, tomato soup, ketchup, mustard, dehydrated onions and peppers, and worchestershire sauce. Combine, and heat through. We put it in the oven all day and let it get really thick.

  12. I used hamburger, onions, green pepper, chili sauce, barbecue sauce, sugar and little bit of ketchup then let it set in crockpot for 4 hours on medium to high heat. It’s so good.

    Hamburger browned with onions and drained
    Add back to pan with mustard, ketchup and BBQ sauce. Try more or less of each one until you like the taste that satisfies you.

  14. Patti Morgan Martini

    I use tomato sauce? Salt pepper ground garlic ground onion. Let it cook until sauce looks rich in color. Serve on hamburger buns, a little mustard and slice of American cheese. Eat with Bushes Original beans and chips,
    I’ve never adding brown sugar.

  15. Fry hamburger with a small onion,lots of catsup let it cook down and add a little water cook down again made this way for years

  16. Angie Mark Hotsinpiller

    Add a can of mixed vegetables. It’s more filling but you really can’t taste any of the vegetables! I love it!!

  17. I do tomato soup with a little vinegar and brown sugar and small amount of ketchup it’s excellent!!!

  18. Cook your ground beef with small diced green pepper and onion .. while cooking add a few good shakes of Worcestershire sauce .. after beef is fully cooked drain grease and add Heinz ketchup… enough to your liking.. I never use canned sauces anymore after learning this ..tastes SO much better .. it may take a couple tries to get it exactly to your liking but no matter how much u add or don’t add I guarantee you’ll enjoy it.. hope that helps!!

  19. Cathy Abbinante

    Add bell peppers, yellow, red & orange & some green onions all chopped really small. The peppers are sweet & loaded with vitamin C.

  20. Mixing your hamburger with beef and barley soup is amazing…. my grandma made her sloppy Joe’s that way and yum … or vegetable beef works too

  21. Buy the sloppy Joe packets in the seasoning packet area, the ones you add tomato paste to, they are delish. I’ve tried all different kinds and they all taste 100% better than manwich.

  22. I sometimes use the can, the regular one, and add our favorite bbq sauce to it. Pretty good. 🤷🏻‍♀️😋

  23. Carla N Ken Martin

    Brown burger, add onion, drain grease, add some sweet baby Ray barbeque sauce. Ketchup one half each to as desired, not too sloppy, add brown sugar, to taste, mix cook together, perfect sloppy joe! I promise. Don’t add anything else! I don’t measure, sorry! Add nothing else!

  24. Fry you hamburger and seasoning to your liking.
    Drain grease
    Then add brown sugar
    Ketchup
    Mustard

  25. Meghan Williams

    We love the jar (not can) called Not So Sloppy Joe mix. My family won’t let any other kind. We also love to make Philly cheesesteak sloppy joes. Recipe on Pinterest.

  26. Sherry D McCarty Miller

    I add onions & bell peppers to the hamburger when I brown it plus I add ketchup & mustard to the sloppy joe mix

  27. Michelle Weigel

    Ground beef onion brown pepper little bit garlic powder drain off grease add ketchup mustard and brown sugar. Taste may need a little bit more brown sugar let simmer

  28. My Grandmother taught me this. Brown burger and onion. Add a can of bush’s baked beans–ketchup–mustard–brown sugar and cook on low heat for about 20 to 30 minutes. We eat it on buns–and sometimes over mashed potatoes.

  29. I do manwich, but add bell peppers, a little bit of onion, and a little hot sauce. We don’t like it sweet.

  30. Annie Kizer Anderson

    Try a loose meat sandwich. Put raw hamburger in pot, add ketchup, mustard, dried onion, worcestershire, horseradish, accent, seasoned salt, and pepper. Stir together and then cook over medium heat. Serve on hamburger rolls with mustard and pickles. My kids like ketchup too but they’re heathens. If you’re into measurements you can Google loose meat, but I like to play it by ear and it always tastes the same.

  31. Hamburger, tomato paste, sloppy Joe seasoning mix, brown sugar. I also add a little ketchup and bbq sauce. Sometimes I add chicken gumbo soup as well

  32. This is my great grandmother’s recipe and I use it often. Manwich is always too sweet tasting to me, the chili powder in this gives it a bit of bite.

  33. Terry Confer Taylor

    I make mine just like my Mom did and I’m 71 years old. Brown 2 pounds of ground beef, drain off fat, add 2 bottles of Chili Sauce (my Mom only used Heinz) but I find the store brand will work fine. Sprinkle on 1/4 C brown sugar. Combine and simmer 5 minutes or so. If you like it a little sweeter add a bit more brown sugar. Toast the buns and dig in

  34. I would add to mine brown sugar, whorshire sauce, and some ketchup. I don’t use measurements, mainly cuz I lost the recipe. I go by taste.
    Someone shared a recipe with me. I love and so does my family.

  35. Julie Rothermel Crawford

    I promise this is the best sloppy Joe recipe of all time. It’s a combination of several recipes. Everyone who has this LOVES it. All seasonings are to taste.

  36. LibbyandDylan Kalp

    Ketchup, brown sugar and mustard is all you need. If it’s too sour add more surgsr, if it’s to sweet at more mustard

  37. I brown and drain the hamburger and chopped onion, then I add the cheapest ketchup I can find, a little mustard, and a small amount of brown sugar. I’ve been doing this for50 plus years.

  38. Kimberly Doyle Baughman

    I put a little smoke in it you can buy it at the grocery store. Also add some good barbecue sauce .

  39. This is the recipe I use. Brown the burger and toss it all into the crockpot on low for 4 hrs. We don’t care for green peppers but I’m sure you could add them if you want

  40. Kristin Branaman

    I grew up thinking sloppy Joe’s were just ground beef with diced onions and open pit bbq sauce. Had never even heard of manwich lol.
    Anyway they are great!
