Tasty Tuesday Sloppy Joes!

Had to delve into my files for this one that Donna sent me in January 2011. No clue as to why I haven't used it before, but I'm glad it was there ready for me to post. Thanks, Donna!

This recipe is a favorite of  the kids. It came from my Mom. When I bring it for potlucks and football parties.. It's a big hit.  Al ot of kids big and old don't like Green peppers. So this  one fits them better.  It's fine for a Private party too with your favorite hunkster. I decided  to add a little wine and Miguel's Buns. What's Sloppy Joes without great BUNS  Enjoy!!


  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed tomato soup
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 8 hamburger buns


  1. Place ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook until evenly browned, stirring to crumble. I like to use a potato masher to even out the lumps. Add onion and celery, cover the pan, and cook until tender and transparent, about 5 minutes. Drain off any grease.
  2. Stir the tomato soup (undiluted), ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce into the beef mixture. Season with salt and garlic powder. Heat to a simmer over low heat, and cook until thoroughly heated, stirring frequently to prevent it from burning on the bottom.
  3. Spoon the hot beef mixture onto buns, which may be toasted first, and serve.


  1. That recipe sounds delicious! Another one I have to keep in my files! And I'll take some time with the hunk too...

  2. I have a recipe like this from my hubby's grandma. It's awesome, but I like the hunk that comes with yours!

  3. I'll take that sloppy joe any time! Oh and the recipe made me drool too. :D thanks for sharing the yummiest stuff!

  4. *laughing* It's a keeper. And easy. I actually made it just last Saturday Night too. It got hot in my kitchen Saturday and melted the candle in my centerpiece, but it wasn't Miguel's fault.

  5. Oooo,he could spread his sloppy joe on my buns anytime!

  6. I decided to have some contest fun today! Swing by my blog! :o)


  7. Yep. Looks good. Wonder how it tastes with wine and Miguel?
