Sloppy Verna’s

Interesting name, yes?  These are normally called Sloppy Joes, but we renamed them a few years ago as this recipe is from Rich’s Grandmother.  It is always raved about when I share it with others – such a great taste.  I hope if you try it your family loves it too!


  • 1 1/2 lbs ground beef
  • salt, pepper, garlic powder, to taste

Brown and season.


  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 T vinegar (I use apple cider vinegar)
  • 1/2 T mustard
  • 4 T sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • salt, pepper, paprika to taste

Pour over beef and simmer 30 minutes.  Serve on buns and enjoy!  You can make this in the crock pot too.  If you have a larger one, I’d at least double the recipe.  If you are lucky enough to have leftovers they will be yummy!
