““If you wish to make [sloppy joes] from scratch, you must first create the universe” Carl Sagan. I’m no stranger to sloppy joes made from adding a jar of sauce to meat, but to work inside my wife’s dietary restrictions (no garlic/onion), I’ve had to look for recipes that don’t use pre-made ingredients like ketchup. Worcester sauce does have a little garlic and onion, but hopefully it’s not enough to trigger any allergies. I only call out “mince meat” because you can use any type of meat you like”
