    What is a Sloppy Joe?

    I am aware that a huge number of people reading this will think that I am joking. The truth is that I only ever first heard of a Sloppy Joe about a fortnight ago and am wondering how to present it to non-US foodies. I only heard of them through watching obscure satellite channels in the middle of the night, as we simply don't have them here in the UK. Do you have a favourite family recipe, or description? I would love to hear them in detail, to any extent. Thanks!

    I remember a SLOPPY JOE as being the name for a huge oversized sweater..(usually a boyfriends )that was worn with jeans.

    This is a kid favorite and an adult comfort food.  Take 2 pounds of hamburger and saute it with 1/2 cup chopped onion.  Once cooked add 6 oz. of bbq sauce, 1/4 c. sweet pickle reilish.  Cook until all bubbly and hot.  serve over a hamburg bun with pickles and mustard on the side.
    This makes me feel like a kid in Jr. H.S. again.
    OH!  You may add a chopped bell pepper in with the onion.
