Trouble LOVES sloppy joes! I guess I do too. What I don't like is the instant stuff in the can. Yuck! So instead of using that yuck stuff, I make my own. It's easy and I usually have all of the ingredients.
- 1 pound ground beef, cooked and drained of grease
- ½ cup onion, chopped
- 1 stalk celery, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1 cup salsa
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- 1 tablespoon mustard (I use Dijon)
- ¼ teaspoon liquid smoke
- sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- 6 buns
What you do:
Saute ground beef with onion, celery and garlic, until onion is soft. (5-8 minutes)
Stir in ketchup, salsa, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, mustard and liquid smoke.
Bring mixture to a simmer and cook at low heat for 25 minutes.
