Sweet Sloppy Joes? Bet you never thought to add sugar to ground beef, but in this recipe, we think it makes the meat taste even better!

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 small green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 (10-3/4-ounce) can tomato soup, undiluted
  • 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar (see Note)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 sesame seed hamburger buns, toasted

What to Do

  1. Cook first 3 ingredients in a large skillet, stirring until beef crumbles and is no longer pink; drain.
  2. Stir in soup and next 6 ingredients; simmer 10 to 15 minutes, stirring often, Serve on toasted buns.


If sweet Sloppy Joes aren't your thing, simply omit the brown sugar. They'll still taste great!
