Recipe: Sloppy Joes

This recipe for Sloppy Joes is one I tinkered with when my son was growing up. We love Sloppy Joes and just didn’t want to use the packaged stuff. The recipe is simple… a good basic recipe….. I know a number of people that have more add-ins than I do… be my guest to do your own tinkering…. I would expect nothing less.

The family will love them and so will you!

All you need:

1 ½ pound lean ground beef

½ teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard

Salt and pepper to taste

All you need to do:

In a large skillet brown the ground beef over medium heat.

As the meat begins to brown, break it into small pieces.

Turn to brown evenly.

Add the onions and peppers and cook until the onions are translucent.

Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

Cook for an additional 5 minutes.

Serve on buns.

I have a sloppy Joe recipe ready for tomorrow. Yours sounds good too, and I, like you, don't enjoy eating the package variety.
