“I was a sloppy kid, wanted to be just wild.” ~Etta James

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.
