The recipe I'm sharing with you today is for Sloppy Joes. I know some people really like the kind you buy in a can, but we aren't big fans of it. However, this recipe is one my family really likes. I've been making it for years and we haven't gotten sick of it. Plus, it's so easy to throw together that it doesn't take much longer than the can variety. :)
2 pound hamburger, browned and drained
1/2 cup chopped onion, optional
4 tablespoons corn starch
2 teaspoons salt
4 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons vinegar
1 cup water
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 cup catsup
2 tablespoons mustard
Put browned hamburg and onions in bowl and microwave on high until hot.
Add cornstarch, salt and sugar and stir together. Add the rest of the
ingredients and stir together. Microwave on high for about 10 minutes,
stirring occasionally until sauce thickens. This recipe reheats well, so
may be refrigerated for later use or just place on low in slow cooker
to keep warm.
*This makes a large amount. I make half of this for Bob and I and it's still enough for a few meals.
**Do you see the cheese on the sandwich? It's something Bob's family always did with Sloppy Joes, and it really is good!
