Vintage Recipe: Sloppy Joes

I'm digging into old recipe boxes and rediscovering the family favorites hidden inside! You'll find carefully handwritten recipe cards, newspapers and magazines clippings and even some hastily scrawled directions on scraps of paper, all from years (and years) ago! They're all getting scanned and transcribed so you can enjoy them in your own home kitchen. 


This recipe for Sloppy Joes is quick and easy to make on a weeknight when schedules are usually rushed and chaotic. I was intrigued by this recipe because usually sloppy joe recipes call for canned tomato sauce, tomato paste, or some other pre-made/canned ingredient. Aside from the Worcestershire sauce, this one does not.
