Scratch Made Sloppy Joes September 13, 2012

Filed under: My Recipes — kariryerson @ 12:00 am

The other day I had a huge craving for sloppy joes. I grew up eating the stuff from a can, but I wanted to make a healthier version and boy was it simple. We both loved these and it only took a handful of ingredients I keep around the house.


  • 1lb Ground Beef
  • 1 jalapeno, chopped
  • 2 gloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tbsp mustard powder
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water


In a large skillet saute the beef, garlic and jalapeno. If you have fatty beef, saute it most of the way first and drain before adding the garlic and jalapeno.

Once brown, add the tomato paste, onion powder and mustard. Saute for 5 minutes.

Add the remaining ingredients and cook until desired consistency.
