I’ve loved Sloppy Joes for as long as I can remember and it’s a favorite in our house. I use the McCormick recipe with a slight variation. It’s quick and easy to make – it takes me about 10-15 minutes from start to finish. It’s a perfect dinner for a busy day when I don’t have much time for meal prep. And my whole family loves it. Which is saying a lot, because sometimes the kids can be really picky.
I usually serve it with baked beans and a green veggie, like broccoli.

What You’ll Need:
- 1 pound of ground beef or ground turkey
- 1 can of tomato paste (the tiny size)
- 1 packet of McCormick Sloppy Joe Seasoning Mix
- 2-3 tsp of Worcestershire Sauce
- 1 cup of water
- 8 pk or hamburg buns
Brown your ground beef and drain any fat.
Once the meat is well cooked and browned, add the packet of McCormick Sloppy Joe seasoning, 1 cup of water…
…and the tomato paste
Stir it up really well.
Add 2-3 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce and stir. How much you put in depends on how much flavor you like. Do you go for a bolder flavor? Pour it in! If not, then add a little less.
Cook for a couple minutes on medium heat until it’s bubbling.
At this point, you could serve it now, but it would be a little soupy. To get rid of the “soupy-ness,”, reduce the heat to low, and let it simmer for a few minutes, stirring occasionally.
Now it’s done!
Serve on hamburg buns. It should make about 8 Sloppy Joes – you can stretch it to go a little farther if you put less on each bun.
