The Best Homemade Sloppy Joes

March isn’t over yet and I’m still loving my nutrition recipes! This is a frequently requested meal from my kids that is quite simple to make! French Fries and a Tossed Salad compliment the Sloppy Joes and make it a complete and tasty meal for your family.


  • 2 lbs Ground Beef
  • 1 small Yellow Onion – diced
  • 12 oz Tomato Paste
  • 1 Cup Ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp Yellow Mustard
  • 3/4 Cup Water
  • 2 Tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 Tbsp White Vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • Dash of Black Pepper (to taste)
  • Hamburger Buns
  • Sliced Cheese


  1. Brown the ground beef and onions together until cooked through (Ground beef must reach a temperature of 145 degrees)
  2. Drain grease from beef and onions.
  3. Add all the remaining ingredients and mix until well blended in the beef.
  4. Bring to boil and then reduce to simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Place a slice of cheese on the hamburger bun before spooning Sloppy Joe onto the bun – the heat from the meat will melt the cheese
  6. Watch the smiles as everyone enjoys their meal!
