Hilda Garey won her first state-level Beef Cook-Off with this version of Sloppy Joes.


  • 2-1/2- to 3-pound chuck roast
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons hot taco sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 8 hamburger buns


Place meat, onion, celery, and green pepper in a Dutch oven; cover with water to come just above meat. Cover pan and cook slowly until tender, 2-1/2 to 3 hours. Remove meat. Cool, shred, and return to cooking liquid. Add ketchup, taco sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, garlic, bay leaf, salt, mustard, and chili powder. Cook uncovered over low heat, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens, 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Remove bay leaf. Serve on buns.
