Sloppy Joes

Sloppy Joes
you may not think
so I wanted to try

I was making enough
to also bless a family
so it was a large batch
these veggies
yes every single one
was included in the
sloppy joe mix
just the mix
not the salad
can you tell from
the picture at the start?

This is when
I love my food processor
so handy
here are those veggies again
I sauteed them
in a bit of grapeseed oil

I added about
3 pounds of uncooked ground beef
and a can of crushed tomatoes

mixing everything together
I also added
a bit of brown sugar
BBQ Sauce
salt and pepper
I didn't measure
I guessed
sorry about that

I cooked this for
a good long time
minimum of an hour
to ensure the beef
is cooked all the way
I simmered it for at least
2 hours to meld the flavours

the kids and I
had this for lunch
and we all had it for dinner
it was yum
my husband found it
a little sweet
but took it to work
and ate it all
my kids loved it
it was a very easy
meal to double
you could top it
with cheese
anything you want


  1. Wow, I would never have guessed you could get so many veggies into sloppy joes - great idea!

  2. Whenever I make spaghetti or sloppy joes I always cram as many veggies in as I can. It's a good way to go.

  3. Oh yum. Not only is the picture mouthwatering, but the veggies! I have to try and add more into my sloppy joes. I always forget about it :(

  4. Great idea about the veggies...I'm definitely going to try this one because I can "hide" the veggies and my kids will never notice. :) What a great recipe!
