Aunt Lois' Pittsburgh Sloppy Joe's


(0 votes) 0 0

This is a simple tasty Pittsburgh, Pa recipe that we grew up with and later fed our kids. It's been served for generations in school cafeterias, bingo, pot lucks, funerals, quick meals, parties, and whatever else. Everyone loves them, from 8 to 80. The recipe came from my sister in law, Lois Taggert of Beaver, Pa. It has been a staple in my home for over 35 years. No leftovers.

Using a medium saucepan, brown meat in oil on medium high heat breaking up as it cooks. Stir in raw onion and pepper. Add ketchup just until meat is thouroughly coated, not soupy. Add remainder of ingredients. Simmer, covered on medium heat for approximately 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. Mixture will become 'sloppier' as it cooks.

Serve on sesame hamburger buns with a side of buttered corn and green salad.
