Since I only made one appetizer for the Super Bowl, I had to make a meal to go with it.
I wanted to stick with the “Super Bowl” themed food but I didn’t feel like making wings and it’s just to cold out to grill burgers so I decided to make homemade Sloppy Joes.
These are so much better than the canned kind! It’s so good, I could eat it by itself with a spoon. I’m trying to come up with another way to use it besides in between two buns.
It’s super easy to make and can also be doubled for a crowd. I once did that and took to a tailgate party.
(I actually halved this because there was only 3 of us)
Homemade Sloppy Joes
(adapted from Chef In Training)
- 2 medium onions, roughly chopped
- 2 ½ lbs. ground beef
- 2 Tbsp. tomato paste
- 2/3 cup BBQ sauce
- ½ cup ketchup
- ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 8 to 10 hamburger buns
Brown meat and onions, drain.
Add tomato sauce and stir until meat is coated. Mix in remaining ingredients (minus buns).
Bring to a boil, lower heat to medium and cook 4-5 minutes or until thickened.
Serve on toasted, buttered buns with a couple pickles.

This would be good in a baked potatoe.
