A family favorite - especially with the nephews. I have to make this whenever they come for an extended stay. I found this one from Food Network and just changed the order I add ingredients while cooking.

How to Make Auntie's Sloppy Joe's


  • 1Heat large skillet over medium heat. Add OIL, ONION, BELL PEPPER and MEAT to the pan. Break up the meat and begin to brown.
  • 2Combine BROWN SUGAR and STEAK SEASONING. Add this to pan with the other ingredients. <if I use very lean meat I do not drain, however if there is a lot of grease, then I will drain first and then add this to the meat mixture>
  • 3Reduce meat to medium and add the RED WINE VINEGAR and WORCESTERSHIRE.
  • 4Add TOMATOE SAUCE and TOMATOE PASTE. Stir to combine.
  • 5Reduce heat to simmer and cook mixture about 5 mintes.
  • 6We will make baked beans and french fries to finish off this meal along with some vegie sticks.

    Serve on Potatoe Buns. <The guys like to put a slice of cheese. My daughter likes to put it on top of her french fries, and I just like it plain on a bun>
