Tomato Soup Sloppy Joes

Pin It
It's Secret Recipe Club time again! This month I was assigned Heather's blog over at It's Yummy to My Tummy. Heather seems to have started her blog the same reason I did...just a way to keep track of all the recipes I make/come up with, and to have somewhere to direct someone when they ask where I got my recipe.
This recipe choice was a no-brainer. With all the various recipes I have made and the limitless of what I am willing to try out, Chris always chooses the same birthday dinner. Sloppy Joes and tater tots. Without fail. I figured if I could at least find a Sloppy Joe recipe that is homemade instead of stuffed in a can, I could live with it. And this recipe fits the bill. It tastes super similar to the canned version we usually buy, and is just as easy. Enjoy!
Printable Recipe

  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp. ketchup
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vinegar
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 (10.75 oz.) can condensed tomato soup
  • 1 tbsp. water
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Buns, for serving

In a large skillet, begin to brown ground beef and add onions and peppers.

Next, add in garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Once meat is thoroughly browned and vegetables are tender, drain any extra fat off your meat.

Return meat mixture to pan and add in Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, ketchup, and about 3/4 of the can of soup.

Stir until well combined and simmer for about 15 minutes until flavors are mingled together. Serve on a bun.
