    Sloppy Joes

    I figured I would share one of my favorite and simple recipes...Sloppy Joes.

    Brown up a pound of ground beef. (more if you need it) Drain grease from pan and put meat back in pan
    Add 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and 1 tablespoon of sugar for EACH pound of meat.
    Then pour ketchup on top till it looks like sloppy joes... stir
    Then add whatever seasoning you like... I put nothing on mine but you might like other things

    Here is the important part... turn heat way down, cover and simmer for 1 hour, stirring a few times

    When I made this for the first time from a buddies recipe, I was like at first "blah, just plain sloppy joes" then after an hour of cooking the flavor really came out... or I was real hungry by then!


    Good luck

    My favorite:

    caramelize 1/4 cup chopped onion in the pan.
    throw in a couple of tablespoons of finely chopped green bell pepper.
    Brown a pound of ground beef with the onion and pepper.
    Add enough ketchup to make it look like sloppy joe.
    Add about 1/4 cup sugar. Yes, 1/4 cup.
    Add about a teaspoon of white vinegar and simmer till it's thick enough.

    Make sure each sloppy joe gets a slice of american cheese to melt on top of the mix.

    Sounds great! Try wild turkey wrapped around bacon on the grill.

    Will the label burn off?
