Easy Dinner: Sloppy Joes Recipe

I’ve loved Sloppy Joes for as long as I can remember and it’s a favorite in our house. I use the McCormick recipe with a slight variation. It’s quick and easy to make – it takes me about 10-15 minutes from start to finish. It’s a perfect dinner for a busy day when I don’t have much time for meal prep.  And my whole family loves it. Which is saying a lot, because sometimes the kids can be really picky.

I usually serve it with baked beans and a green veggie, like broccoli.

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 pound of ground beef or ground turkey
  • 1 can of tomato paste (the tiny size)
  • 1 packet of McCormick Sloppy Joe Seasoning Mix
  • 2-3 tsp of Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 cup of water
  • 8 pk or hamburg buns

Brown your ground beef and drain any fat.

…and the tomato paste

Stir it up really well.

Add 2-3 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce and stir. How much you put in depends on how much flavor you like. Do you go for a bolder flavor? Pour it in! If not, then add a little less.

Cook for a couple minutes on medium heat until it’s bubbling.

At this point, you could serve it now, but it would be a little soupy. To get rid of the “soupy-ness,”, reduce the heat to low, and let it simmer for a few minutes, stirring occasionally.

Now it’s done!

Serve on hamburg buns. It should make about 8 Sloppy Joes – you can stretch it to go a little farther if you put less on each bun.
