We are using spices and veggies instead of ketchup to flavor our yummy kid friendly and adult pleasing yummy homemade sloppy joes. No preservatives.
Add 1/4 of each green, red and yellow peppers 🫑 cut up into your choice of size and 1 onion. If your making this for kid’s you may want to dice the peppers and onion’s into very small pieces. I like 1” inch piece’s for adults. You can also purée in the blender for a smoother texture.
While the meat 🥩 is cooking cut up your veggies 🥗 and onions 🧅 .. Cook your meat 🥩 down and drain the grease.
Add your onion 🧅 and 🫑 peppers. Add 1 teaspoon salt.
Add 2 Teaspoons of garlic. I use 2 of the frozen 5 gram cubes. ( 1 Teaspoon each cube ). Continue cooking
Cook down until soft and onion’s are translucent.

I toasted some fresh baked garlic pepper Jack cheese bread. It paired wonderfully. So buns for the kids and add cheese or a different bread for the adults.

2- 16 ounce wide mouth mason jars. Fill each one and leave at least 2″ from the top. Put the lid and seal on quickly so it will seal down good.
Let the BBQ sauce cool completely.
Put one in the freezer and the other you can refrigerate for up to 3 weeks.
*You can use a Slow Cooker or Multicooker with the Jam setting if you have. It’s easier and you dont have to worry bout burning it. You just use the brown/sautee setting for cooking vegatables and bring to boil.
