Sloppy Joes is the perfect quick and cozy family friendly dinner. I love using Gefen pasta sauce in my recipe for an added boost of flavor. It’s my sneaky little shortcut that takes these sloppy joes to the next level. We like ours in a toasted hamburger bun with sliced pickles to cut the meaty richness. Mmm.


Best Easy Sloppy Joes

  • 1 tablespoon Tuscanini Olive Oil

  • 1 and 1/4 pounds ground beef

  • 1 yellow onion, diced

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

  • 2 cups Gefen Pasta Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon fish-free Worcestershire sauce, such as Tonnelli

  • hamburger buns, toasted



Heat a skillet over medium heat and add the olive oil. Add the onions and let them sauté for four to five minutes. Then, add the ground beef and let it cook and brown while breaking it up with a fork.


Add Gefen pasta sauce and spices. Next, add in the vinegar and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a simmer, lower the heat to low and cook until slightly thickened, about five minutes. Spoon beef mixture onto hamburger buns and serve.

Sauté the onions in the skillet with oil and then add the ground beef and the rest of the ingredients! We’ll make sure to update the recipe- thanks for pointing out the missing step.

Let the onions sautee for 4-5 minutes before adding in the meat.
