“Tired of sweet tasting Sloppy Joes and Manwhich sauce? Dill pickle juice in this recipe is the ticket. I made up this recipe because I was tired of sweet tasting sloppy joes. Everyone loves this Sloppy Joe recipe, especially kids. Make it cheesy by adding a slice of your favorite cheese on the bun.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the beef, celery and onion in a large skillet till the meat is nicely browned but still a little pink inside. Drain off any fat and crumble the meat into tiny pieces. Stir in the chili sauce, mustard, water and the dill pickle juice to the pan. Bring to a slow boil then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for about 10 minutes, flipping and stirring once in a while. Add more water if the mixture is too dry and heat till warm throughout.
  2. Serve on hamburger buns with optional American or cheddar cheese slices in the sandwich.
  3. A veggie such as corn and potato chips make good sides.
