Grandma's Sloppy Joes Recipe
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
- 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
- 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. Yield: 8 servings.

It was different and pickle relish gave it a different flavor.

Only 1 lb. of hamburger to all the rest of the ingredients. Could this possibly be a typo error. 1 lb. would be floating in the sauce. please advice. Yes I would make if corrected.
