The Humble Sloppy Joes


  • 4 lb. ground lean beef
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 3 cans Campbell's Chicken Gumbo Soup
  • 3/4-1 c. ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcheshire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. yellow mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic finely minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • hamburger buns


  1. Brown the hamburger meat in a skillet with the chopped onions until no longer pink. Drain very well or rinse in colander with hot water. (That will take off even more fat.) Return the meat to the pot and stir in the remaining ingredients except for the buns of course and simmer for about 30 minutes until nice and thick.
  2. *Note: I usually drain off a little of the liquid from the soup and reserve incase it needs to be added back in as the mixture thickens.
  3. Serve on hamburger buns with your favorite side dishes.
