Super Sloppy Joes
SUPER SLOPPY JOES
Its finally spring! Hooray! The only bad thing is here in Minnesota actual spring weather won’t be here for a while. But that won’t stop me from making spring-like meals. I just recently got introduced to this recipe by my grandmother Alexa. She brought Sloppy Joes to my house and we had them on Christmas day for lunch (to my defense, we had come home from the hospital that morning with our daughter and I obviously had no time to cook ????) It was great to get a home-cooked meal after 4 days in the hospital.
These Sloppy Joes are great because they’re not your traditional really ketchup-y or really bbq saucy sloppy joes. While these sloppy joes do have ketchup in them, the chicken gumbo soup really helps to add another level of flavor. All of that combined with tender ground beef makes for a perfect meal for a crowd.
- 2 lbs. ground beef
- 1 medium onion-diced
- ¾ cup ketchup
- ¼ cup mustard
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 teaspoon seasoning salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 2 cans chicken gumbo soup I use Campbells- drain one can (make sure you don’t lose any of the rice or chicken pieces from the soup. You just want to drain the liquid from one can)
- Brown ground beef with the diced onion until brown, then drain.
- To the meat add the ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt, seasoning salt, pepper and chicken gumbo soup.
- Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes.
- Serve on your favorite hamburger bun with some shredded cheese.
This makes quite a bit so my husband and I usually have a few Joes then I freeze the rest. Once you’re ready to eat the second half, just thaw in the fridge overnight and heat it up in a saucepan until warmed through.
