I woke up today feeling under the weather. Man, the weather is darn crazy these past few days. Just like yesterday, when I stepped out of the house the sun was burning and then it suddenly rained. When I woke up earlier I was so weak to even stand up, but hey the husband is here so he prepared my favorite. Homemade Sloppy Joes! This beauty cheered me up like crazy! The sweet and savory combination is insanely good, messy but satisfying. My husband nailed it! Not too sweet, not too spicy, just perfectly balanced Sloppy Joes to cheer me up! This homemade sloppy joe is the best in history! Mouthwatering and super delicious!

1 teaspoon olive oil
1 lb. ground beef

HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE SLOPPY JOES
Step 1: In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add in the beef, break it into crumbles, and cook for about 5 minutes until browned. Drain any excess fat.
Step 2: Saute the onion and bell pepper in the same skillet for 2 to 3 minutes until tender. Then, add in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds until fragrant. Put the beef back into the skillet and pour the tomato paste. Stir until incorporated.
Step 3: Stir in the ketchup, water, brown sugar, mustard, chili powder, Worcestershire sauce, salt, red pepper flakes, and black pepper. Mix the ingredients until well combined.
Step 4: Cook for 10 to 15 minutes over medium heat or until the mixture reached your desired consistency. Once done, remove from the heat and serve immediately with toasted buns. Enjoy!
