Homemade Sloppy Joes- nom nom nom….

Home Made Manwiches 

In the US we just dump a can of sauce on some meat to make sloppy joes. I’d like to think of this as a more refined version (if you can call anything refined that uses ketchup as an ingredient 🙂  You can spice it up with a little more, add more vinegar or sugar to taste or add veggies to feel less guilty about the lack of vitamins in the dish. This is my ‘oh crap, all we have in the fridge is minced meat and I can’t remember what we ever use that for’ dish.

1&1/2 lb ground beef (or one large pack in the UK)

1/2 chopped onion

Chili powder to your taste

2 tbsp brown sugar

2 tbsp flour

1 tsp salt

2 tsp vinegar

water if too dry

8oz of ketchup, 250ml -ish (or a damn good squeeze)

Brown off meat and onions in a little oil, drain. Add all ingredients.

I add corn and/or mushrooms to make it feel a little more of a balanced meal. Serve on toasted buns.

    The canned kind is all sodium and of course fast so it’s great if you are in your 20s or at university..not so great if you like real food. Sounds good with the corn!
