My sons LOVE Sloppy Joes,when I saw Julia's dinner, today,I decided to post the recipe I like to use.These are approximate measurements as I don't measure when I cook. My family likes spicy,you can omit the pepper flakes if you want.My youngest son used to say,"Mom,why do you always have potato chips and carrot sticks when we have Sloppy Joes?" I don't know why I do,but I do!
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion,garlic and beef, cook until beef is browned, stirring to crumble. Stir in remaining ingredients except buns. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spoon 1/4 cup beef mixture over bottom half of each bun. Cover with top halves.
