This Homemade Sloppy Joe Recipe makes a quick and easy dinner that you can make for the entire family for just $5 including the side dishes!

Ingredients

Units Scale

1 lb. ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped or 1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
5 Tbsp. ketchup
2 tsp brown sugar
1/8 tsp. lemon juice
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. salt
hamburger buns (If gluten free, use GF buns.)

Instructions

  1. Brown meat and onion until the onion is tender.
  2. Drain the fat.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients.
  4. Heat thoroughly, stirring to mix all of the ingredients.
  5. Serve on hamburger buns. Serves 6.

 

Notes

  • This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled and you can make several batches and freeze ahead of time. Then just thaw and serve.
  • If you use a 5 pound chub of ground beef, that cuts the price down even more.
  • To save a lot on ground beef: If you get 73% ground beef, you can cook out and drain off the excess fat and the price is still a lot cheaper than buying 93% lean ground beef.
