How to make homemade sloppy joes:
These Ground Turkey Sloppy Joes are the best sloppy joes I’ve ever tasted and it’s because they are homemade!
Step 1: Brown ground turkey in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Step 2: Add pepper and onion and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
Step 3: In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar, vinegar, steak seasoning, Worcestershire sauce and tomato sauce.
Step 4: Add sauce to skillet, reduce heat to medium and let simmer, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes.
Step 5: Serve warm on hamburger buns.
Items needed for this recipe:
Large skillet: I use this skillet for just about anything I cook on my stove top. It is sturdy, easy to clean and nonstick so your food comes out nicely every time.
ChopStir: This might be my absolute favorite kitchen tool. It is perfect for browning meat because it breaks it up into little pieces, helps your meat cook evenly and can be washed in the dishwasher.
Wooden spoons: I love the look and functionality of these wooden spoons. I keep mine right next to my stove top for easy access whenever I’m making anything that requires some stirring or mixing.
Tips for making the best homemade sloppy joes:
- For an even more delicious sloppy joe, toast your hamburger buns before serving. Spread some butter on the inside of each bun and place buttered side down on a hot skillet until golden brown.
- Be sure to not overcook your sloppy joe meat and sauce to avoid losing too much of the moisture and making your sandwich too dry.
- If you don’t love turkey, you could easily substitute it for ground beef in this recipe.
- Use high quality ingredients to insure optimal flavor.
