Betty demonstrates how to make Super Sloppy Joes. Served on toasted brioche buns, these Super Sloppy Joes make a terrific informal lunch or dinner.


Ground beef 1 Pound
Chopped onion 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Salt 1 Teaspoon
Freshly ground black pepper 1/4 Teaspoon
Flour 1 Teaspoon
Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Worcestershire sauce 2 Teaspoon
Ketchup 3/4 Cup (12 tbs)
Brioche buns 2
Mayonnaise 1 Tablespoon



In a deep skillet, place ground beef, onion, salt, and pepper. 

Brown the mixture over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until no pick is showing on the ground beef and the onions are softened. 

Stir in flour, water, Worcestershire sauce, and ketchup. 

Cook, stirring occasionally for 15 to 20 minutes, or until desired consistency is reached. 

When Sloppy Joe mixture is done, toast the buns as follows. 

For two buns, melt ½ tablespoon butter in skillet. Spread cut sides of brioche buns with just a small amount of mayonnaise and place, cut side down, in skillet. 

Toast over low to medium heat, until cut sides are crusty around outside. 

Use a slotted spoon to place Sloppy Joe mixture on toasted bottom bun half. 

Cover with toasted top bun half.
