Sloppy Joe Sandwich Recipe
A school lunch throwback that's sloppy and good
There's no school lunch revival more nostalgic than the Sloppy Joe sandwich. You can do a lot with basic pantry ingredients and a pound of ground beef, but few recipes are easier than this. The classic is (barely) contained in a burger bun, but feel free to experiment with various rolls and other types of bread.
- In a large skillet over medium high heat, combine ground beef, onion, and bell pepper.
- When beef is cooked through, drain off excess fat and stir in sugar, vinegar, ketchup, and mustard.
- Season with cumin and salt and simmer on low heat for 20 minutes.
- Divide among hamburger buns and serve.
