Do you have a good, basic, Sloppy Joe recipe?

I'm going to be spending a night in a really run down house. It's got a gas stove, refrigerator, etc, but it's not someplace I'm comfortable cooking in, yet.

So I want to take something filling (I can't sleep when I'm hungry) and tasty.

My sloppy joe recipe used to be ground beef cooked with diced onions, drain grease, add a jar of pizza sauce, and serve.

But my wife insists that's no good.

Do you have a good recipe? Something like what they used to serve in the school cafeteria back in the day?

Instead of pizza sauce, add a jar of Barilla tomato and basil spaghetti sauce. I love that stuff

My aunt makes it completely from scratch, but Manwich is much easier and cheap. Tastes really great, I like the bold alot better than the usual.

I'll typically add some onion, garlic and green bell peppers into mine.

Yes... I tell the better half.. "Sloppy Joe's sounds pretty good". It's a great recipe.

Man, haven't had those in awhile. I'd probably make a mixture of tomato sauce, chipotles in adobo, cumin, garlic, and maybe something interesting like diced olives or peppercinnis. Add to browned burger meat and sauteed onions, season with salt and pepper. I'd eat that.

That sounds pretty good. It's very similar to what my MIL used to make for the kids when she and FIL came to visit.

I'm not particularly fond of it either, but every so often, it's one of those things I like.

Take the Hunt's Manwich and add generous amounts of onions and jalapeno peppers. Splash in some Tabasco for fun.

Make it thick and serve it on toasted oversized buns.

I really like the "not so sloppy Joe" brand that comes in a jar.
It is sometimes hard to find so when I do come across it I buy several jars.

I don't like Sloppy Joes either, but sometimes they aren't bad. Manwich isn't a bad way to go if you're gonna do it. I have actually been thinking about making some sort of thing that brings back memories of like a school cafeteria...A bed of fritos, sloppy joe meat, and cheese topping it.

I just made these a few weeks ago. No special recipe, just something I searched for but I remember it called for a splash of vinegar; I don't recall if it was red wine for apple cider vinegar. Gave it a nice bite. I also throw in a teaspoon or two of powdered mustard for that depth of flavor.

Whether you use a recipe or a can of Manwich, toasting the buns by buttering and grilling them really does add a nice crunch. And butter. I always put a slice of cheddar from the deli on mine too.

I was going to say this - chop up some onion, some pepper and add some garlic. Then maybe some kind of cheese on top just before serving.

That looks pretty similar to the homemade version my aunt does. I think she throws in a little mustard too.

FWIW, I find the manwich mix is pretty tasty and often on sale something like a buck a can. I'll typically keep a few cans in my pantry.

It's good for other things too, It's primary just tomatoes and spices so it will liven up chili or pasta sauce too. Makes a decent topping on a meat loaf instead of just ketchup like most people use too.

Simple?
Meat, onions, ketchup, mustard.
Brown meat with chopped onions. Add ketchup and mustard to taste.
