Homemade Sloppy Joes

     Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Yesterday was our 6th anniversary and we went to a really nice restaurant that I will share more info on a post tomorrow so if you are in the Austin,TX area or ever visit be sure to check my post tomorrow! :) 

   I want to share a super easy and yummy recipe with you all that I tried last week. I LOVE Sloppy Joes but my husband doesn't so I hardly ever make them and I usually use the canned sauce to make them until I found this recipe  of course from whole foods! lol and I already had the ingredients, all I needed were the buns. So I convince my husband to let me try this recipe (he wanted steaks as usual) and it was a success! We all loved it! :) Here is what you need:


1 1/2 lbs ground beef (I used one pound)
1/4 white onion, chopped
Sea Salt & Ground Pepper, to taste
1 cup tomato ketchup
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce 
2 tablespoons brown sugar (I used cane sugar)
2 tablespoons  yellow mustard 
 whole wheat burger buns
Brown the beef in a nonstick skillet over medium heat, 5—7 minutes. Add onions and season with salt and pepper. Cook until onions soften, about 7 minutes. Add ketchup, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, sugar and mustard. Stir to combine. Simmer until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes. Spoon over split toasted hamburger buns and serve!
I served our sloppy joes with baked fries. It's a simple easy fun summer recipe for you and your family! I will continue using it since I almost always have the ingredients available.

  1. YUM sloppy joes! These are great for crock pots! You can make them ahead of time and just let them sit!


I would LOVE to hear from you! :)
