Grandma's Sloppy Joes from Scratch
A good, old fashioned recipe for Southern-style sloppy joes- these sandwiches come straight from my Grandma's kitchen.
- 1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef
- 1 large white onion roughly chopped
- salt & black pepper to taste
- 1 cup ketchup
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 2 packed tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tbsp yellow mustard
- 6 hamburger sized buns
In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef- about 5 minutes & breaking it up as it cooks.
Stir in the onions, and season the mixture with salt & pepper- to taste.
Continue cooking the mixture, stirring occasionally, until the onions have softened and begun to caramelize- about another 5-7 minutes.
Add the remaining ingredients to the skillet, stirring them in until evenly combined.
Bring the sauce to a simmer, the reduce the heat to maintain a slow simmer. Cook the mixture like that for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
When the sloppy joe mix has thickened, remove the skillet from heat
Scoop the filling onto fluffy buns, or on slices of toast and serve as sandwiches.
