"BBQ is different in every home you go to. I have never found another recipe that compares to my grandmother's. It is a sweet-tasting recipe and goes great with a salad or french fries!"

  1. Whisk together the ketchup, water, white sugar, brown sugar, vinegar, mustard, salt, pepper, and paprika in a large saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir the ground beef and onion in the hot skillet until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink; drain and discard any excess grease. Stir the beef into the simmering barbeque sauce. Simmer together for 10 minutes. Spoon into the buns to serve.

Not a drop left in the pan. I loved that this recipe was homemade sloppy joe and didn't have that commercial can taste like store bought. One of my sons considers himself a sloppy joe expert and...

Very good flavor. Reminds me of my mother's recipe. I like the tang. I think the next time I will add green peppers for extra veggies. I didn't cook the sauce in a separate pan. After the meat b...
