Sloppy Joes

The easiest way to make simple Sloppy Joes is to sauté ground beef and onion until brown and then pour in two (15-ounce) cans of Hunt’s Sloppy Joe sauce. This is delicious (even the kids like it) and no fuss.

For a slightly more interesting variation (and to introduce a few vegetables), you can try this version:

2 tablespoons canola oil
2 pounds ground beef
1 onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
½ green pepper, chopped
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 cup ketchup
¼ cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce (the no-fish kind)
½ teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon cloves

Heat oil in a large skillet and sauté beef, vegetables and garlic over medium heat until browned. Drain off the fat. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Simmer for about 30 minutes. Serve over fresh Kaiser rolls.
