I have been craving sloppy joes (shut up) forever and four days now. Even though Dave emailed to say he'd be home late tonight, I decided I was making sloppy joes for myself anyway.
I always used to think sloppy joes came from a can, but did you know you can MAKE them yourself, and please do. These were really delicious. I had two. I think I might just go get more joes without the bread...
1 pound lean ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard
3/4 cup ketchup
3 teaspoons brown sugar
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
- In a medium skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef, onion, and green pepper; drain off liquids.
- Stir in the garlic powder, mustard, ketchup, and brown sugar; mix thoroughly. Reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
