I'm giving this 5 stars even though I tweaked here n there. I did recalculate to 4 servings for 1 lb 91% grnd beef. I think that's fairly lean. Anyway, I salt n peppered the beef as it was being cooked/crumbled down. I also added a bit of Montreal Steak seasoning. I also had 1/3 C of chicken stock I needed to use up so in it went. I eyeballed the onion, grn pepper, worscester, etc. I did reduced the 2/3 cup of water in each application to 1/2 C. I felt the ketchup made it sweet enough for myself so I added a drizzle of molasses to get that flavor profile. Oh, I was lazy so used garlic powder. I think allowing the liquid to cook down is the way to go. I've been trying different recipes here and they were all too 'heavy' with the sauce for my pref. This reminds me of a cross between loose meat and SJ, which I really like! Oh yes, I did add a small amount of pecan liquid smoke as I like that little bit of a smokey flavor. Good stuff - is my go-to 'unsloppy joe' recipe from now on. Uncomplicated and easy, thanks a bunch CJ.
