I know Nettie posted a sloppy joe recipe a while back, but this is my favorite concoction (besides mom's...her's are the best). It's half manwich + half Mel's recipe. Her recipe alone is too sweet and doesn't taste very sloppy joe to me, but with manwich, it's perfect. Here's her original recipe. My kids LOVE sloppy joes.
2 lb ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1-2 T tomato paste
1/3 c smoky bbq sauce
1/4 c ketchup
2 T worcestershire sauce
2 T soy sauce
1 can Manwich (the regular size)
Cook beef and onions. Drain the grease off the meat and
onions. Stir in the tomato paste, and keep stirring until the meat is
coated. Add the BBQ sauce, ketchup, Worcestershire, soy sauce,
pepper, Manwich sauce and bring to a boil.
