Recipe of the Week: Sloppy Joes

We combined two recipes all based on the ingredients we had on hand and we really liked the results.  The celery was surprising good.  It's a little sweet and added a nice flavor I hadn't had before in sloppy joes.  The recipes are found here and here.  I used the Kinnikinnick Tapioca Rice Hamburger Buns which are pretty tasty.

This is our new favorite sloppy joe recipe:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/3 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 3 teaspoons brown sugar
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  1. Crumble the ground beef into a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring frequently until evenly browned. Drain off grease. Add the onion and celery, and cook until the onion is tender, about 3 minutes.
  2. Stir in the garlic powder, mustard, ketchup, and brown sugar; mix thoroughly. Reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
