Our children love this recipe for “Sloppy Joes”, which they affectionately call simply “Joes”. Ground beef is seasoned simply and then mixed with tomato ketchup and chili sauce for a one-pot comfort dinner.

We start by heating a large pan over medium heat. We add the oil and ground beef and break it up in the pan with a wooden spoon.

We cook the meat for 10 minutes, breaking it up and stirring it occasionally. Next, we add the onion powder, stir for a minute, and then add the ketchup, chili sauce, Worcestershire, a teaspoon of salt, a pinch of pepper, and the water. We stir well, lower the heat to medium-low, and continue to cook it for another 10 minutes.

We serve the sloppy joes on a warm baguette or on hamburger buns.
