How To Make homemade sloppy joe sauce

  • 1
    Sautee onion and bell pepper until mostly done, add ground beef and cook until browned. (I go light on the meat... but I'm sure you can add what works for your family.)
  • 2
    Add all remaining ingredients, bring to slow boil, cover and slow cook for at least an hour. (I went 3 with mine.)
  • 3
    Serve on toasted hamburger buns... or however you prefer. (I served this with homemade Jojos (steak fries).
