How to Make So Easy Sloppy Joes


  1. Chop onion and green pepper into small pieces. Add to the raw ground beef in a large stove pot.
  2. Over medium-high heat brown beef, making sure no big chunks of beef. Onion and green pepper should be softened. Drain grease.
  3. Turn heat down to medium. Alternately add small amounts of tomato sauce and ketchup, alternately, until tastes good to you. Try not to make too runny, but should not be dry. Heat through completely, do not boil. Serve warm on sandwich/hamburger rolls.
