This is another recipe I use my Grandma Vinion's Peppers with Red Sauce in! It is absolutely delicious & once you have it this way, you won't want them any other way! My brother Loves my Sloppy Joe's & says no matter how hard he tries he just can't make them the way I do! I can guarantee if he shows up on a day I've made them, I have NO left-overs! He will eat them until they are gone! The best thing is, you can make them sweet or spicy depending on what peppers you add!

I will post the peppers recipe link in the comment section of this post.

Love sharing the ways to use these peppers!

How to Make Homemade Sloppy Joe's with a Delicious Twist

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl, combine tomato sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, & pint of Grandma Vinion's Peppers in Red Sauce. Mix until well blended. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet crumble lean ground beef, add minced garlic, diced green pepper, diced onion, salt & pepper. Cook until meat is browned through. Drain off any excess fat if there is any.
  3. Add sauce & pepper mixture and stir in. Cook over low-medium heat 20-30 minutes or until heated through. If you want a little kick to your Sloppy Joe's use the hot peppers in Red Sauce.

    *******NOTE: If you don't have the peppers on hand. Check out my Sausage Cacciatore Recipe for a quick mock version of these wonderful peppers!!
  4. Serve on fresh hamburger buns with a slice of American Cheese!

    I make this recipe in large portions for parties. When I do, I brown meat, transfer to crock pot and add the sauce mixture & allow to cook on low for 4 hours. Then keep warm. Keeps well in a crock pot for those pot lucks or parties!
