You don't have to rely on canned sauce to make your own tasty sloppy joes. It's a simple recipe, and one that allows you to adjust the spices to your family's tastes.


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 can tomato puree (28 oz.)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce


  1. Brown ground beef in a large skillet or dutch oven. Once the meat is evenly browned and broken up into small pieces, add the chopped onion and minced garlic. Cover and cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes; drain any excess fat and return the pan to the heat. Add remaining ingredients and heat to a simmer. Stir the contents frequently to keep them from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Serve in hamburger buns.
