BBQ Hamburgers

Hello All!! I have such a yummy recipe to share today. We tried this one last week and everyone loved it. It is kind of like sloppy joes, but 100 times better. Here are the details.


What you Need:

1 lb. Ground Beef
1 onion
2 tbl flour
1 cup tomato juice (I used v-8 juice)
1/2 cup BBQ sauce*
1 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp sage

Here is What you do:

Brown beef in skillet. 
Add salt and pepper. 
Sprinkle flour over meat and stir.
Blend in remaining ingredients. 
Simmer for about 15 minutes, until it thickens. 
Serve on Hamburger buns with Sharp cheddar cheese. 
Your family will be saying YUMMY! 
I promise

*Homemade BBQ Sauce

This is a great substitute for store bought sauce.

1 onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons butter
1 can tomato sauce (8 oz.)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons molasses
1 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tablespoon cidre vinegar
1 tablespoon water

Sauté onion in butter until soft. Add remaining ingredients and stir to thoroughly combine. Let simmer over low heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  1. Oooh, that sounds delicious! I'll definitely be trying that one soon!

    I recently saw a recipe for taco joes that I want to try soon. Basically, it's sloppy joes, but with taco seasoning added to it.

  2. Use ground turkey, so much better for you. I switched from ground beef to turkey many years ago and my kids are healthier for it. We still use beef like steaks and Carne Asada, but when I can substitute turkey I do. Turkey tacos and burritos are my kids favorite!

  3. That looks yummy :)

  4. I cannot do the ground turkey-thing. I'd much rather just find hamburger with a low fat percentage. I've tried substituting with ground turkey and my kids never like it the same.

    This recipe sounds great - thanks for sharing :)

  5. I made these for my family tonight. They were a HIT!

  6. Will try with the turkey. Yummy!

  7. Will try with turkey! Yummy!

  8. How do you preserve your BBQ sauce? How long does it last?

    1. I store it in my fridge for about two weeks. It is usually used up by then. I store it in a glass mason jar.
