This super easy Sloppy Joe recipe is one that has been handed down through generations and features a hearty taste of classic 1940's diner food! The meaty mixture is combined with tomato sauce and seasoning to make a perfectly messy, tasty filling for your sandwiches!
Preheat a large skillet, non-stick frying pan, or Dutch oven with a tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced green bell peppers and onions. Saute until tender.
Add the ground beef and let sit for about 5 minutes. Break apart the ground beef and continue to brown until mostly browned (a little pink is OK as the beef will continue to cook in the sauce).
Add the tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, yellow mustard, brown sugar, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder. Simmer for 3-5 minutes or until the meat is cooked and the sauce is warmed through and thickened.
Portion the sloppy joes out for 6 servings on buns, toasted or not. Serve with a slice of cheese and/or dill pickle on the sandwich.
