  1. Cook and stir ground beef in a skillet over medium heat until meat is browned and crumbly, about 10 minutes; drain excess grease. Mix ketchup, dried onion, brown sugar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, smoke flavoring, and garlic into beef, stirring until brown sugar has dissolved.
  2. Stir beef broth into beef mixture and bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer until thick, about 30 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper.

Made this last night. I did use fresh onion and garlic and added a dash of chili powder. Rave reviews from husband and son. Not sure if it was the liquid smoke, broth or what, but these are the best sloppy joes, ever. Thanks for sharing



This is definitely a keeper!I didnt have liquid smoke so I used garlic bbq sauce and didnt have spicy brown mustard so I used ground mustard and regular mustard and turned out awesome...Loved it!!!



This was awesome. I uses real onion instead of dried onion.
