  • Add the ground beef, onions, and green pepper to a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat until beef has browned and vegetables are tender. Drain excess liquid. 
  • Add in the remaining ingredients and simmer over medium-low heat for 15 to 20 minutes until sauce has thickened.
  • Serve the sloppy joe mixture on hamburger rolls. I like to spread a little mayo on my rolls and sprinkles my sloppy joe mixture with grated Parmesan cheese for extra flavor.


  • Nutritional information is an estimate and does not include hamburger rolls or any additional condiments or toppings beyond the ingredient list.
