Sloppy Joes

In a moment of laziness, I decided to attempt Sloppy Joes without the use of a prepared seasoning packet (there was an incident of buying way too much meat over the weekend and ground beef shall be the meat of choice for a while until my freezer no longer looks like it's holding only beef and Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches -- not that that's necessarily a bad thing ;-) It was a grand success and I dare say the seasoning packet does not need to enter this house again!

Sloppy Joes
Serves 6
Estimated Point Value: 4 pts

1 lb ground beef
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried mustard
3 tsp brown sugar
8 oz tomato sauce
1/4 c. ketchup
1/4 c. BBQ sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray's -- our rib sauce of choice)
1 Tbsp Worchestershire sauce
1 Tbsp vinegar
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
  1. Brown beef and onion together in a large skillet.
  2. Add other ingredients and simmer for 15-20 minutes, starting with the lid on (if things get too sloppy, remove the lid and let the joes thicken up a bit).
  3. Serve on hamburger bun.
