Grandma’s Sloppy Joes

My grandma served these sandwiches each time I visited as a child. When I had children of my own, I relied on this recipe as an inexpensive way to feed them. They like it, and now my grandchildren do, too. - Patricia Pidgeon, Sycamore, Illinois

    8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups ketchup
  • 3/4 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 8 hamburger buns, split

Directions

  • In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the ketchup, relish and brown sugar; mix well. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until heated through. Spoon onto buns.
To prevent brown sugar from hardening, store in a resealable plastic bag in a cool dry place. If it does harden, add an apple wedge to the bag until the sugar softens (about 1 to 2 days); discard the apple.
