ISO SCRATCH Sloppy Joe Sandwich recipe -nothing canned or bottled plz.

I'm looking for a sloppy joe recipe from scratch. I did a search and have found some interesting recipes. I just thought I'd pick the brains here.

I am really wanting to make this, but please, only scratch recipes. Nothing canned or bottled or processed or American name-brand ingredients. Fresh ingredients only, please.

As a child, I grew up with sloppy Joes made with browned ground beef, chopped onions, chopped green peppers, and minced garlic. To that mixture, a can of Campbell's Chicken Gumbo soup was added, along with some catsup and baby kack mustard. Don't know where the recipe came from, but we liked it and it was always what we had before going out to trick-or-treat on Halloween. We loved it.

That chicken gumbo soup recipe really brings back memories. It must have been de rigeur in the sixties and seventies!!
You might look on the net for a Maid Rite recipe--that is a good "sloppy joe"!

Thanks for the replies - they give me more ideas. Though, actually, I'm looking for a recipe from scratch that doesn't use any canned foods.

Joanne, your recipe comes really close to the one I downloaded from the net, except that one included chili powder.

Anyone use chili powder in theirs?

For the mustard... what kind of mustard? Dijon? Hot? Stone ground? We have about a million different kinds of mustard (which all are used for specific purposes. )

For the mustard I use just a plain yellow mustard, either Krafts or Frenche's. Hope this helps. JoAnn

velochic, this recipe calls for ketchup so I do not know if you can use it, but here goes;

1 T. butter

1 lb. gr. meat
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 medium green pepper, chopped

3/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup water
1 T. sugar
2 T. prepared mustard, any kind would work!
1 T. vinegar
s&p to taste

In a skillet, over med high heat, melt butter and brown meat, onion and green pepper. Add all the remaining ingredients. Simmer 15 minutes. Serve on buns

YES! Thank you. Ketchup is fine. That we have and do eat. This looks good. I'll give it a try.
