  • 6 hamburger buns

  • 500 g of ground beef

  • A small white onion, chopped

  • Small green/red sweet pepper

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1/4 cup of water

  • 2 teaspoons of yellow mustard

  • 2 teaspoons of hot sauce

  • 5 tablespoons of ketchup

  • 1 tablespoon of vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons of dark brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon of paprika, spicy/smoked paprika is also possible

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 2-3 tablespoons of oil for the pan

  • Tomato and pickle slices, lettuce strips


  • Heat a pan with 2-3 tablespoons of oil. Chop the onion into small cubes and fry until t transparent. Cut the sweet pepper into small pieces and add to the pan, add crushed garlic and fry for another 2-3 minutes.

  • Add the minced meat to the pan and fry the mixture while stirring for another 5 minutes, until the meat absorbs liquids. Continue frying until the meat is completely crumbled and there is almost no liquid in the pan.

  • Add the rest of the ingredients to the pan and continue to mix. Add a quarter cup of water and bring to a boil. The mixture should not be dry. Season with salt and pepper to taste. If the mixture is too sweet, you can add a little vinegar, and if it is salty, you can add sugar.

  • Before assembling the Sloppy Joe, it is recommended to heat a pan without oil and burn the halves of the buns on it or place them in a hot oven for a few minutes.

  • Assembling the burger: place a generous amount of meat on half of a toasted bun, on top of the meat you can place sliced vegetables according to taste (fresh lettuce, tomato slices or pickled cucumber) and on top of the other half of the bun.

  • Enjoy your meal!
