Grandma's Sloppy Joes Recipe
- 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
- 1. 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.
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.

Reviews for Grandma's Sloppy Joes
"Just like one I make but I add mustard"
"I really liked it and so did my kids, but my husband would prefer "regular" sloppy joe. I only used 1/2 cup pickle relish and about 1/3 cup brown sugar."
"So easy to make and very sweet. I used a hot pepper relish, so it had a bit of a kick to it. The family loved it!"
"A little on the sweet side but tasty and easy. I used 1/4 cup barbeque sauce in place of part of the catsup and reduced the relish to 1/2 c. I will probably make this again."
"I didn't add the brown sugar, I added 2 teaspoons mustard and cut back on the catsup."
"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."
