One of my favorite recipes would have to be "Sloppy Joe Sandwiches." I find this to be a rather fast dinner to make, & I'm not in the kitchen for hrs. on end trying to finish supper. I shall pass it on just in-case someone would like to try to make it sometime for dinner for themselves, or for the family. "Sloppy Joe Sandwiches." Ingredients: - 1/2 pound of ground beef - 1/2 cup of ketchup - 2 tablespoons of water - 1 tablespoon of brown sugar - 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce - 1 teaspoon of prepared mustard - 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder - 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder - 1/4 teaspoon of salt - 2 hamburger buns, split (or however many one may like) Directions: - In a large sauce pan or skillet.. Cook the beef over medium heat until no longer pink, drain quite a bit to get rid of excess fat. Then you stir in the ketchup, the water, the brown sugar, the Worcestshire sauce, the mustard, the garlic powder, the onion powder, as well as the salt. Then you bring it to a boil. Then you reduce the heat, you cook & summer it for 30 - 40 minutes. (Note: We don't cook it for that long.. We leave it on for 10 minutes & then serve it.. We also toast the buns & then put the meat mixture on the buns & then put cheese on top..) It all depends upon how one may like there sloppy joes.. Enjoy if anyone wishes to try this recipe.. As it is rather yummy & very filling as well! . .
