Mom's Sweet and Tangy Sloppy Joes

Updated: Mar 14, 2023

Sloppy Joes

This sloppy joe recipe has been a staple in my family. We love a good sweet but tangy flavor in ours. You will use just a few simple ingredients from your pantry and fridge to make the perfect balance of flavors, and there is very little prep. It's the perfect recipe for a quick lunch or dinner with the family.

You will need:

  • Lean ground beef

  • A can of tomato soup

  • Mustard

  • Ketchup

  • Brown sugar

  • Onion and garlic powder

  • Salt and pepper

The brown sugar adds that extra touch of sweetness to these sloppy joes, while the mustard adds that fun tangy flavor.

Brown up your meat and then be sure to drain off the extra fat. Then add all your ingredients, mix, and let simmer for a few minutes.

Add to your favorite buns and enjoy!



[Serves about 6]

Roughly 1 1/4-1 1/2 lbs of 93/7 or 90/10 ground beef -- drain off fat

Salt and pepper to taste (about 1/2 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp pepper)

1 - 10 3/4 ounce can tomato soup

1/4 cup ketchup

1 Tbsp mustard

2 tsp brown sugar

1/4 tsp onion powder

1/8 tsp garlic powder


  1. Start by cooking your ground beef on medium-high heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Make sure there is no pink left, then drain the fat.

  3. Lastly add your brown sugar, onion, and garlic powder and mix well again.

  4. Let this simmer on low-medium heat for about 5 minutes.

  5. Add to your buns and serve. Eat up within about five days.
