Sloppy Joe Recipe!

Homemade family dinner meals have never been so easy with this easy and delicious Sloppy Joe recipe! This is my family’s favorite dish and I used to make it a lot when the kids were in school. It’s always easy to double or triple this recipe to make leftovers that you defrost when you need a quick meal. This recipe takes less than an hour from start to finish and your family has a healthy, homemade meal! Sloppy Joe’s have a special place in my heart because this is the first dish I learned to make in America! I am so excited to share this recipe I’ve had for over 30 years with you! If you want to freeze this dish, spray your plastic containers with canola oil so it does not stain your container. This is a neat trick I learned a while ago. If you enjoy this recipe you can also add all of the sauce ingredients in a pan to cook together before adding to the meat, that is up to you. I do it both ways depending on the time I have and how much mess I want to make. The way I did this in the video is so easy and very little mess! I hope you enjoy it! Please share with me if you made this recipe and what you think.
