Mom's Sloppy Joe's

9:48 AM

My mom made this receipe a few weeks ago.  We were all hungry when we got home from church and mom asked if we wanted to have a quick lunch of sloppy joe's before we had to leave to go back to Columbia- and of course we said yes!  My husband, thinking that she would just heat the meat and throw a can of manwich in a pan, thought that we would be on the road in an hour tops.  HA!  Doesn't he know that my mom doesn't make anything 100% from a can?  He absolutely loved this recipe, he had 3 sandwiches and took the leftovers for lunch later that week!  He's asked that it become a part of our normal food rotation.  Enjoy!

Mom's Sloppy Joe's

1 lb lean ground beef
1 can of Campbell's Gumbo Soup
1 soup can of water
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
Several squirts of ketchup
Several squirts of mustard
Worchestershire sauce, to taste
Salt & pepper, to taste

Heat onion, peppers, and ground beef in pan until meat is brown. 
Drain.  (I always rinse to remove any extra fat.  I don't care if they say not too!  It does help!) 
Return to pan. 
Add the rest of the ingredients and cook until heated thoroughly and sauce thickens. 
Serve on slightly toasted buns.
