Heavenly Sloppy Joes

This is a good recipe for doubling or tripling because it freezes well. The next day, any leftovers may be served over elbow macaroni, wide egg noodles or rice, or used in a recipe for stuffed cabbage, tacos, stuffed peppers or as a filling in a lasagna recipe.

Heavenly Sloppy Joes


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced, or 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 cup water or beef broth
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • Salt and pepper


  1. In a skillet, over medium-high heat, sauté ground beef, onion, bell pepper and garlic in a teaspoon of olive oil (if beef is very lean). Cook, stirring occasionally (allow the beef to sit in one place on the skillet for several minutes at a time to let it brown) until meat loses its red color. Drain off any grease that accumulates to prevent steaming instead of browning.
  2. Stir in water or beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup and flour. Cook uncovered for about 20 minutes.
  3. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Serve on toasted buns.
