Sloppy Joes

Sloppy Joes. It is one of my favorite childhood sandwiches. Mom would always serve them with sliced cheese on top and a fork on the side so all of that delicious, saucy meat that fell off the bun and onto the plate never went to waste. It’s so simple yet so satisfying even to this day. These are great for lunch or dinner with fries or chips on the side.

Here’s what you need:

*1 lb. ground beef

*1 small onion, chopped

*2 garlic cloves, minced

*1 TBS. brown sugar

*1 tsp. chili powder

*2 tsp. paprika

*2 tsp. onion powder

*2 tsp. garlic powder

*1 tsp. mustard

*1/2 tsp salt or more to taste

*2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

*2 8oz. cans tomato sauce

*1 tsp. white wince vinegar

*hamburger buns or any other desired rolls.

Heat a large pan on medium high heat, add the beef and break apart as it starts to brown. When it starts to brown, add onion and garlic.

Continue cooking until beef is brown and the onions are tender; drain if needed.

Lower the heat to medium and add the in all of the ingredients except the tomato sauce and the white wine vinegar.

Stir to combine and cook for about 1 minute. Pour in the tomato sauce and the white wine, stir and reduce the heat to medium low.

Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes until thickened to your liking; stir occasionally.

Spoon beef mixture onto hamburger buns or rolls.
