Cultural Exchange

A public service for the rest of the world :-)

A sloppy joe is an American dish of ground beef, onions, sweetened tomato sauce or ketchup and other seasonings, served on a hamburger bun

In my opinion, they are best served with a side of macaroni and cheese and french fries!



U.S.MetricConversion chart

  • 2 pound(s) lean ground beef
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 6 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 can(s) (6-ounce) tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoon(s) chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 80 mls ketchup
  • 60 mls Worcestershire sauce

  1. Brown meat in a large skillet over medium heat. Remove meat and set aside, then drain all but 1 tablespoon fat. Add onion and garlic to skillet, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until onion is soft, about 8 minutes.
  2. Add tomato paste and cook, stirring constantly, 2 more minutes. Stir in chili powder and salt and cook 1 more minute.
  3. Add ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and reserved meat. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and let simmer 25 minutes.
Enjoy :-)

Aww thanks Dad... I actually was going to do a search for some on google images but got completely side tracked. It looks really....sloppy... but I know it will taste great. I also love macaroni and cheese so I'll have to look into making this one day. Its just a shame yours didn't turn out like this :(

As a kid we were treated to Sloppy Joe's at least once a month and now as an adult I still make it. It's just so good. I serve it with a tossed salad!

Dad said... too! on the razor's edge...have a sloppy joe :-) BTW, how did you get your url on your response? Do you have to type it in everytime?

@Bubbles...a bib is not a bad idea when having sloppy joes

@Mynx...thanks for the award...JM was SUPPOSED to show me how to get it when I was at her house today...but she's old and forgot :-)'d never try to take care of you because I remember that you don't like that...but I will always share :-)

@Barb...hmm, never thought about pairing with salad...might have to give that a try
