Sloppy Joes

This is a really good Sloppy Joe recipe.  I got it from my friend Angie after she brought it in for a work party and everyone gobbled it up.


  • 2 lbs. extra lean hamburger
  • 1 large onion (optional; I generally chop some up and serve them separately)
  • 1 pint (2 cups) tomato juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste (I also use a dab of onion salt, garlic pepper and garlic salt!)
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar

Brown meat and drain off excess fat.  Add rest of ingredients and cook for approximately 1 – 1‑1/2 hours.  (Time will vary if you are cooking larger quantities.)  Have small bowls of grated cheese, sliced pickles, and olives to serve with it.
