video instructions available below 👇 


– 1 pound ground beef (or turkey for a healthier option)
– 1 onion, diced
– 1 green bell pepper, diced
– 2 cloves garlic, minced
– 1 cup ketchup
– 2 tablespoons brown sugar
– 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
– 1 tablespoon mustard
– 1 teaspoon chili powder
– Salt and pepper to taste
– Hamburger buns, for serving


1. Brown the Meat: In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef (or turkey) until it’s no longer pink. Use a spatula to break it into crumbles as it cooks.

2. Add Aromatics: Once the meat is browned, add the diced onion, green bell pepper, and minced garlic to the skillet. Cook until the vegetables are softened and aromatic, about 5 minutes.

3. Sauce it Up: Stir in the ketchup, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and chili powder until everything is well combined. Let the mixture simmer for an additional 5-10 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

4. Toast the Buns: While the Sloppy Joe filling is simmering, lightly toast the hamburger buns under the broiler or in a toaster oven until they’re golden brown.

5. Serve and Enjoy: Spoon generous portions of the Sloppy Joe mixture onto the bottom halves of the toasted buns. Top with the other halves of the buns and serve hot.

Tips for Success:
– Don’t be afraid to customize your Sloppy Joes to suit your taste preferences. Add a dash of hot sauce for extra heat, or throw in some diced jalapeños for a spicy kick.
– If you’re short on time, you can prepare the Sloppy Joe filling ahead of time and reheat it when you’re ready to serve. It tastes just as delicious, if not better, the next day!
– Serve your Sloppy Joes with a side of crispy french fries, coleslaw, or potato chips for the ultimate comfort food feast.
