Sloppy Sloppy Joes Recipe (Better than a Seasoning Packet)

I love this Sloppy Sloppy Joes recipe. It’s definitely better than a seasoning packet! This recipe makes a lot, but you can freeze half of it and use it for a meal later. Or if you don’t want to do that, then just cut the recipe in half. Thanks to a friend for sharing it.

Sloppy Sloppy Joes
4 lbs. ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 can (28 oz.) tomato sauce
2 cans (10 3/4 oz. each) condensed tomato soup, undiluted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup ketchup
3 Tbsp. worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp. dry mustard
1 Tbsp. prepared mustard
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. garlic powder

Directions: Cook beef in large skillet over medium-high heat until no longer pink, stirring to break up meat. Drain fat. Add onion and green pepper and cook, stirring frequently 5-10 minutes or until onion becomes translucent. Transfer meat mixture to slow cooker. Add remaining ingredients; stir well to combine. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours.

Note: Don’t worry if you forget to start this earlier in the day (like I do). Instead of cooking it 4-6 hours, just let it simmer 15-30 minutes on your stove. I’ve done this many times, and it tastes great!
