This recipe is a combined effort of Eileen and Janice over the years. It's been tested, tweaked and tried many times. Sloppy Joes are a Schulz all-time favorite for family get-togethers.
2 lbs ground chuck, browned and drained
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 can tomato soup
1/4 cup ketchup
1 TBS brown sugar
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 TBS Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 cup Open Pit Original BBQ Sauce (don't substitute a different BBQ sauce)
You may need to add a little more BBQ sauce and/or ketchup to your liking.
Combine all. Simmer til hot.
This freezes well.
Figure approx 1/2 lb of meat per person (approx 2 sandwiches per person)
2 lbs meat - 6-8 sandwiches = 3-4 people
3 lbs meat - 9-10 sandwiches = 5-6 people
4 lbs meat = 12-14 sandwiches = 6-7 people (double the above ingredients)
6 lbs meat = 20 sandwiches = 10-11 people (triple the above ingredients)
