Sloppy Joe is a sandwich made up of ground meat with ketchup or tomato sauce as it’s key ingredient or seasoning.

I’ve been making easy and no fuss dinners lately and this clearly fits the bill.

First, saute one medium size finely chopped onion and 2-3 minced garlic cloves in a little oil. Add 1.5 lb ground beef and cook until well browned. Drain off excess fat. Add 2 tbsp. tomato paste, 1/2 cup ketchup, 2 tbsp. worcestershire sauce, 2 tbsp. brown sugar, 1 tsp. ground black pepper and salt to taste. Simmer for a few minutes over low heat. Add 1/4 water if you think the mixture is a bit dry.

Spoon a large portion of the meat mixture onto a burger bun or a kaiser roll and serve with some pickles or chips.

It’s going to be messy so be sure you have some napkins on hand !
