Sloppy Joes Sandwiches

Sloppy Joes
slightly adapted from sweet friend, Renee @Singing with birds


2 pounds ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
2 (8 ounce) cans tomato sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon pepper 

Cook beef and onion in a large skillet set over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Drain.
Stir in remaining ingredients. Bring almost to a boil; reduce heat and gently simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
Spoon about 1/2 cup meat mixture onto each bun. Yield: 8 servings.

Classic Sandwich Buns
using bread maker for dough


1 large egg plus enough warm water to measure 1 cup
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups bread flour
3 Tbs. Nonfat dry Milk
3 Tbs. sugar
2 tsp. Bread Machine Yeast

Add all of the ingredients in the order recommended by manufacturer of your bread machine (usually wet ingredients followed by dry ingredients and ending with the yeast). Set the machine to dough setting. When complete, remove dough from machine and allow to rest, covered for 5 minutes.

Divide dough into 8 pieces. Form into balls. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Cover lightly and place in a warm, draft-free place and allow to rise for another 60 minutes.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 18 minutes or until golden brown.

Looks Yummy! I haven't made Sloppy Joes in a long time, thanks for the reminder! Would be good and easy for supper tonight!

Those sandwich buns look amazing! And your Sloppy Joes looks like a wonderful dinner!

I have always loved Sloppy Joes. Haven't had them for quite awhile. I'm fixing barbecued pulled pork on buns tonight. Similar, but not the same as Sloppy Joes. You made me think about making some soon.

You know we love sloppy joes. I made some recently and tried cutting back on the beef and adding cooked quinoa. It was a great addition and went over well with my hungry grand-kiddos. Thanks Lorraine!

Ultimate comfort food, messy is half the fun! And on homemade buns? Takes this to a whole other level of yumminess. xo

We haven't had Sloppy Joes for ages. We recently discovered Pulled Pork (thank you, all the cooking bloggers!) and love that treat!

Nonnie said...

We were talking about Sloppy Joe's just yesterday at BSF. Thanks for the recipe!

The sandwiches look so good. For some reason when I was a kid, I referred to sloppy joes as "meaties." We all still refer to them as that!!!

Sloppy Joe's with homemade rolls makes something simple real special. These make me hungry just looking at them

A few years ago, I had a vege sloppy joe recipe I used to make that was so good. Even the kids loved it and you wouldn't tell there was no meat. I can't find that recipe for the life of me. :/ Have a fabulous Friday. Tammy

Susan said...

Oh, LDH, I'm going to copy both the sloppy joe and bun recipes. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

You know, sometimes I get so sick of cooking the same old things. This is great. Something new!

Thanks, too, for all your visits to my blog! You are a doll. Susan

Danice said...

Both recipes look really tasty. 'Will have to try them :)

lindsey said...

Thank you for posting these recipes. Sloppy Joe's aren't usually found in the UK but I did used to make them for my children when they were young and I am sure my grandchildren would like them so I have printed off your recipes

I'm happy to have a homemade recipe for sloppy joes. We love them!

Just a little something from Judy said...

Pictures as these bring back many happy memories for me. I grew up with these sandwiches, but must admit, they never looked so beautiful. I admire anyone who makes homemade rolls.
