I'm not a big meat eater and it's not very often that I get a craving for meat, but, when I do I usually crave sloppy joe's.....especially in the summer....there's something extra yummy about having sloppy joes in the summertime! It's weird I know! When I was little or even just a couple of years ago I would have never touched one!
But, these sloppy joe's are just too good! It is a recipe from my great grandma who passed it on to my grandma and my mom and now to me! There is nothing extraordinary about these, but, boy are they good! They are meaty, a little messy, and a little bit sweet from brown sugar and have chunks of veggies from a can of soup (the potatoes are my favorite!) and I like to serve them on hawaiian sweet buns.
Makes about 8 sandwhiches
-1 1/2 pounds ground beef
-1 (10.5 ounce) can vegetable beef soup with barley
-2 tablespoons brown sugar
-a few splahes of distilled white vinegar
-1/3-1/2 cup ketchup (depending on how sloppy you want them!)
-pepper to taste
-6-8 hamburger buns
1. In a large pan, cook ground beef until brown and drain off excess fat.
2. In the same pan, add the soup, brown sugar, vinegar, ketchup and pepper to the cooked meat and simmer over low heat for at least 20 minutes.
3. Serve on buns and enjoy!
