There will be NO Manwich in this house.
Sloppy Joes is one of the easiest and tastiest things I cook.
Everyone likes it, it's affordable and it's fast to make from scratch....no Manwich needed.
When I first got married and I was "trying" to cook for my husband I called my mom to ask how to make sloppy joes....she told me, but in her I have cooked this so many times I don't have measurements I just do a dab and a bit and smidge way...so I had to come to some good round measurements for myself...here they are :
One lb. ground beef
One 6 oz. can of tomato paste
2 Tablespoons of brown sugar
1 Tablespoon of prepared mustard
1 Tablespoon of worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon of onion powder
salt and pepper
Brown the beef and drain off the fat.
Add some water to the beef, probably about a cup and a half-ish.
Then add all the other ingredients, salt and pepper to your liking.
Simmer covered until thick.
Serve on a toasted bun with some really bad for you french fries.
You'll never serve Manwich again.
