Ah, Sloppy Joes

They are one of my favorite forms of comfort food. I made a batch of sloppy joes tonight and served one helping on toasted bread. Yum. It goes nicely with a cold beer.

I found this recipe for sloppy joes at RecipeZaar. It has a few more ingredients than my version, but it looks good. I also found this sloppy joe recipe — which includes 3/4 cup of cola — at the blog The Evil Beet.

My recipe is below:


  • 1 lb. of ground beef

  • 1/4 cup of chopped onion

  • 2 tablespoons of flour

  • 3/4 cup of ketchup

  • 3/4 cup of beer

  • 1 teaspoon of molasses

  • Salt and pepper to taste

1. Brown the ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat. In a separate frying pan, brown the onion over medium heat.

2. Stir the browned onion into the beef. Add all of the remaining ingredients and stir occasionally over medium-low heat.

3. When the beef mixture starts to bubble rapidly, turn heat down to low. Simmer for another 10 to 15 minutes.

4. Serve on toasted bread or hamburger buns.
