Sloppy Joes copy

 Who loves sloppy joes? Me! Me! Me! I love sloppy joes!  For a long time I have been trying to create a recipe that tasted like the sloppy joes I remember from my school days, and I finally have it.  This recipe has that yummy tomato taste that I love.  I made these sloppy joes for my garden party where I served my Old-Fashioned Potato Salad.   I served a double batch and I could have used more, because every morsel was eaten.  So if you have some hamburger thawing in your refrigerator and you’re not sure what you are going to make, I recommend cooking up my Easy Sloppy Joes.  They are simple to make and they are awesome! 

Here’s a picture of most of the ingredients you will need.  The only ingredients not pictured are the water and the hamburger.

 While the meat is browning, you can mix up the sauce.  In a bowl mix your 6 oz. tomato paste, 3/4 cup ketchup, 1/2 cup water, 1/4 cup white vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt, 1 1/2 teaspoons dry mustard, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and 2 tablespoons brown sugar.

Once your hamburger is browned, drain off any grease in the pan.  Then pour your sauce into the pan and mix the meat and the sauce together.  Simmer the mixture on medium heat for 15 minutes until it is all warmed up and the flavors will mixed together.
