No more can Sloppy Joe after this! The girls love this recipe and it's quick and easy to make.
1 lb ground hamburger
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1/4 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup ketchup
1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
Slice of cheese (optional)
Spoon to stir
TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS
- In medium skillet over medium heat, brown beef, onion and green pepper. Drain.
- Stir in garlic powder, ketchup, brown sugar, Worcestershire and mix thoroughly.
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
- Serve on lightly toasted hamburger buns.
Instead of salt, I use Lawry's Seasoned Salt and Garlic Salt
I am one of those that hate crunchy onions BUT will eat sweet finely chopped onions well cooked.
I use a food chopper to chop and cook first, before adding the
hamburger. I add a little olive oil, let it cook about 5 minutes and then add the hamburger.
While the hamburger was browning I measured the ketchup in a Pyrex 1 cup measuring cup and added the rest of the ingredients to it and mixed. When
the hamburger was browned and drained, I added the contents of the measuring cup using a spatula to get it all into the pan.
If you like real saucy Sloppy Joes you can double the sauce ingredients.
I sometimes make 2 lbs and freeze half for another dinner!
