It only takes two steps to create these Super Simple Sloppy Joes. Pair it with some coleslaw and potato chips for the ultimate summertime feast.

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 (14-1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 1/4 cups ketchup
  • 1/2 cup bottled barbecue sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 8 hamburger buns, toasted

What to Do

  1. Cook ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until it crumbles and is no longer pink; drain well. Return cooked beef to skillet.

  2. Stir in tomatoes and next 3 ingredients. Reduce heat to low, and simmer 15 minutes or until thickened. Serve mixture on toasted buns.


If more kick is what you're yearning for, add some chopped pickled jalapenos (and some liquid from the jar) to get those taste buds jumping. Start with 1 tablespoon of each to suit your tastes.

I loved this! Just added a medium diced onion that I sauted. Used a dark BBQ. Not too sweet. First meal was on a whole wheat bun. Second was on pasta. Yumm

I have a better Quick sloppy recipe. One lb. of ground chuck/round, one large onion diced, one can of tomato soup, one can of tomato sauce. Brown beef and onions...add soup and tomato sauce and simmer until the ingredients are mixed. You only need to use one pan, the large frying pan...just add the soup and sauce to the frying pan with the juices...if you use chuck, you may have to drain off the fat. but with the ground round, there isn't much fat. If you are interested in more "punch", add some Lawry's Seasoning Salt. My boys were so fussy that they liked it on the "bland" side. This was more pleasing to my kids than the sloppy joe mixture in a can or package. AND less preservatives.

thanks for this super simple sloppy joe recipe--I love quick meals like this--add tater tots & fruit & my family's in 7th heaven. Thanks for sharing
