I was trying to come up with ideas to make for the Super Bowl and one that is perfect is Sloppy Joes. I had never made from scratch before so it was an experiment. They turned out really good, so I wanted to share with you. I hope you like them as well.
2-1/2 pounds Ground Beef
1/2 whole Large Onion, Diced
1-1/2 cup Ketchup
1 cup Water
2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
2 teaspoons Chili Powder (more To Taste)
1 teaspoon Dry Mustard
1/2 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes (more To Taste)
Worcestershire Sauce, To Taste
Tabasco Sauce (optional; To Taste)
Salt To Taste
Freshly Ground Black Pepper, To Taste
Brown the ground beef, and drain the water/fat.
Add onions, and garlic. Cook for a few minutes, until onions get soft.
Add ketchup, brown sugar, chili powder, dry mustard, and water. Stir to combine and simmer for 15-20 minutes, adding salt and pepper to taste.
Add Tabasco if desired. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
Serve on toasted or untoasted (I prefer soft) buns.
