Delicious Sloppy Joes, you will never eat Manwich again.

"The flavor was nice, but i thought 2 T of Montreal steak seasoning made mine a bit too spicy, perhaps a tsp or 2 then to taste might be better for those with a sensitivity to spiciness. Also I used dark brown sugar and added about a 1/3 Cup because I like it sweet, I even added a T of molasses."

- Madisonulmer


Are you making this? 
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil; 1 turn of the pan
1 1/4 pounds ground beef sirloin
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoon steak seasoning blend; such as McCormick brand Montreal Seasoning
1 medium Onion; chopped
1 small red bell pepper; chopped
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 cups tomato sauce
2 tablespoons tomato paste
4 crusty rolls; split, toasted, and lightly buttered

Original recipe makes 4



Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add oil and meat to the pan. Spread the meat around the pan and begin to break it up. Combine brown sugar and steak seasoning. Add sugar and spice mixture to the skillet and combine. When the meat has browned, add onion and red peppers to the skillet. Reduce heat to medium and cook onions, peppers, red wine vinegar and Worcestershire sauce with meat for 5 minutes. Add tomato sauce and paste to pan. Stir to combine. Reduce heat to simmer and cook Sloppy Joe mixture 5 minutes longer. Using a large spoon or ice cream scoop, pile sloppy meat onto toasted, buttered bun bottoms and cover with bun tops.

One word...Excellent. I recommend doubling the ingredients, it's a crowd pleaser!!!

This was so easy to make and so yummy! I used ground turkey instead of beef to make it healthier. I also forgot to buy a red bell pepper, so that got left out (but not on purpose so I'll use it next time). This was the best sloppy joe I've ever had! I served mine with baked sweet potato fries.

Very yummy. Next time I think I will add a little less brown sugar and throw some cayenne in there. Was too sweet for my liking but still delish!

This is the best sloppy joe recipe! I added a little cayenne for heat and cooked it til it was thick. Really GOOD! A keeper for sure.

What a terrific version of Sloppy Joes. I used ground round instead of sirloin and only used 1 tablespoon of the steak seasoning. It had the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. Very tasty.

First time I've made sloppy joes and im hooked! Left out the red pepper and instead topped with fried onions for crunch. Very tasty!
