Sloppy Joe’s

Sloppy JoesThis is just a very simple recipe that can also be cooked in a crock-pot on days when your in a hurry and know that you won’t have time to cook at  meal time that day. 🙂
  •  Meat ( Beef or Venison) (you can adjust the amount that you put in…if  using more than 1 pound though, you will want to increase your other ingredients)
  • 1/2 cup chopped Onion
  • 1 diced Pepper
  • 3/4 cup Ketchup
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 1 tsp. Sugar
  • 2 tsp. brown Mustard
  • 1 tsp. white Vinegar
  • Rolls

Directions:  Sauté everything together in a pan over medium heat until thoroughly cooked.  [easy right?!]    An alternative to cooking this on the stove is to put all the ingredients together in a crock-pot and set on medium-low heat all afternoon to have a very easy dinner waiting for you when you are ready to eat.

Serve over rolls with a fresh salad and Iced Tea and you’ve got yourself one easy summer supper! 🙂

Happy Cooking and Bon Appétit!
