Sloppy Joes

Recipe name: Sloppy Joes
Source: somewhere online (can't find it)
Servings: 8-10
Cookbook date: August 29

3 lb ground beef (we use ground turkey)
1 cup onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups ketchup
1 cup green pepper, chopped
1/2 cup water
4 tbsp brown sugar
4 tbsp prepared mustard
4 tbsp vinegar
3 tsp chili powder
hamburger buns

In a large skillet, brown meat, onion and garlic. Cook until meat is brown and onion is tender. Drain off fat. combine remaining ingredients (except buns) in a skillet. Stir in meat mixture. cover and cook on low for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spoon onto hamburger buns.

We just made half of this recipe. While I wouldn't go so far as to say that these were the best sloppy joes I've ever had, they came together quickly and they were cheap to make since I had all the ingredients on hand. I'll make them again, for sure.
